12 WORST TABLE SAW MISTAKES!! And How To Avoid Them…(DON’T DO THESE THINGS! Kickback/Binding)
Table saws are one of the most helpful saws on job sites or in the work shop–but they can be dangerous! This video from The Honest Carpenter will explain 12 of the worst table saw mistakes!
1. Twisting the Board: This can cause saw blade binding, which will lead to dangerous kickback.
2. Cutting Freehand: Never cut freehand with a table saw! Always use the rip fence or miter gauge or a crosscut jig.
3. Squeezing the Cut: Using too much force with your outside hand can cause the wood to bind on the table saw blade. This can trigger kickback.
4. Ripping Boards Wider Than Long: Trying to rip boards along their narrow length is unstable, because it forces the small end against the fence. Make this crosscut another way.
5. Levering: It’s easy to accidentally rotate the front end of a heavy board up when you begin cutting. Don’t do this–if the board drops down, the saw blade may bind.
6. Failure To Catch Outfeed: When long boards pass off the back end of the saw, they will get pulled down by gravity, pulling your end up. Have someone catch the outfeed gently, or let it rest on something.
7. Pulling Small Pieces From the Back: This brings your hands too close to the spinning blade. Push them through with a push stick instead.
8. Dropcutting: Don’t try to lower a piece onto the spinning table saw blade. If it binds, the wood will get thrown, and your hands may contact the blade!
9. Don’t Set Blade Too High: Table saw blades only need to extend about 1/4″-1/2″ above the top of your wood stock.
10. Reaching Over the Table Saw: When a cut is complete, don’t reach over the spinning blade to grab the piece. Push it through with push stick, and then turn off the saw.
11. Ripping Narrow Widths: Ripping any cut under an inch can be dangerous. Consider making this small width the offcut (away from the rip fence) instead.
12. Standing Behind Your Stock: If kickback occurs, you may get hit with a flying board. Stand just to the side of your stock while you’re cutting instead.
