    I always use a spacer block clamped to my fence. Mine is exactly 1”, so I just add an inch on my fence gauge

    It depends on the style of fence you have. With sliding fences you can cut through without the possibility of kickback.

    Been watching you for years, your shorts are awesome and super packed!

    Thanks Dad. I mean Steve. Thanks Steve.

    As well as if you’re a framer. And youre using your leg to hold up a 2×4 to cut, make sure the end is off of the ground otherwise you’ll get a kick back as well.

    Thanks for starting to do YouTube short’s. I really wish the dislike button still work because there’s a lot of misinformation floating around in this part of YouTube. It’s nice to have a responsible YouTuber actually making videos in this section of YouTube.

    I learned something new today, now to dust off the table saw.

  8. Eamon Kelly on November 10, 2023 at 11:19 pm

    What if I’m using that thing on my fence that flips out, and stops along the blade?

  9. Michael Eisma on November 10, 2023 at 11:20 pm

    can you use miter gauge and fence when you cut half of the piece then pull back??

  10. Brandon M on November 10, 2023 at 11:26 pm

    Is it bad that after watching this I felt like going to home depot for some lumber shopping?

  11. Shawn Lindsey on November 10, 2023 at 11:27 pm

    Can confirm. I bruised a rib learning not to make this mistake.

  12. Devin Hall on November 10, 2023 at 11:30 pm

    Not a Carpentor I’m an insulator but I see getting a bunch of slightly different lengths and this being very inaccurate I was always taught to use a push stick to push the piece through . This guy makes good content but this is a no no

  13. Heather Pierce on November 10, 2023 at 11:30 pm

    I love your videos. Thanks for great, informative content.

    You made me nervous not using a push stick during your demo of cutting right through the wood (even w/saw off for demo) Someone will think that’s ok. My Dad was a woodshop teacher and was so strict about that. Yet a cousin who was taught, chopped his fingers all up on his right hand while using his Dad’s saw at home & had to have them wired back together, not to mention lack of mobility in his hand ever since. The wood jammed in the space and on top of not using a push stick he did not shut the saw down to pull out the block of wood. And of course did not have protective eyewear on either. It was a bloody mess. He still regrets it 60 yrs later.
    My Dad would show pics of my cousin’s hand to his classes for added measure. They listened for the most part, until the kid with long hair refused to tie it up and got it caught in the drill press and it scalped him. 🤪 That guy also regrets his mistake. I guess it’s good to learn from other’s mishaps and to heed warnings for one’s own safety.

    This is a rough lighting for you lolol
    Ghost of the woodshop

  16. Heiryuu on November 10, 2023 at 11:40 pm

    Ah… yeah this makes sense. Why the hell didn’t I think about using a spacer

  17. Star Gazer on November 10, 2023 at 11:44 pm

    CNC machine for me.

    If you are explaining a tablesaw please put guards on and explain they should always be on otherwise you will injury or lose fingers. There are so many people posting dangerously unsafe videos and I fear people will copy them.

  19. Buddy on November 10, 2023 at 11:46 pm

    Just make sure you square your end that touches the fence first. An unsquared
    end can get caught and force a kick back.

    Tks 🙂
