Table saw tilt

What's the advantage of hving a right hand tilt or left hand tilt on your table saw?

I think it is mostly about which way you feel most comfortable working.

I think it has to do with safety. If, like most people, you have the fence on the right side of the blade, you can avoid having your work caught between the fence and the angled blade when cutting with a left tilt (blade tilts away from the fence).

Left & Right handed people. If your one or the other, it's easier on you to get the one that tilts that way.

That's my opinion & I'm sticking to it.
