You will see in Picture 5 of the above description that a force component from the blade is indeed pushing against the fence while the other force component is resisting advance of the wood.....just the situation one wants to have. (there is another force component pushing up on the wood. A light cut makes this force easy to resist with hand pressure on the wood. )
