Safety’s
Always
First

Picture

Power tool safety can never be over-stressed. It’s important that you NEVER bypass safety issues to save money, get a project done faster or because you feel you’re an experienced craftsman to which safety doesn’t apply.

Crosscutting on the Table Saw?

DON'T
Not using Miter Gauge. Hand just 1/2-inch from trouble! Too much blade penetration. Wearing long sleeves and jewelry. Rip Fence being used as a stop without a “clearance block”. Blade dull. No eye protection.

DO
Always use Miter Gauge with Safety Grip when crosscutting. Set blade penetration at no more than 1/4-inch past top workpiece surface. Roll sleeves above elbows, never wear jewelry, always wear eye protection. Use “clearance block” on rip fence when using fence as a stop.  Support stock with free hand. Sharpen blade.
