Transcript

  • 1. TABLE SAW SAFETY
  • 2. SPECIFIC PURPOSE • To rip boards to width and cross-cut them to length.
  • 3. SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES 1. Measure stock and make adjustments when the saw is at a dead stop. 2. Use a push stick to push material past the blade and clear away scraps. Never use your fingers. 3. Raise blade ¼" higher than the stock thickness.
  • 4. Specific Safety Con’t 4. Never stand directly behind the saw. Stay off to one side. 5. Never try to saw stock "FREEHAND". Use the rip fence or miter gauge. 6. Never allow fingers to come closer than 5 inches to the blade. 7. Ask for help when ripping long pieces of stock.
  • 5. Fill in the Blank!!! • When RIPPING stock always use the RIP FENCE and never use the MITER GAUGE. • When CROSSCUTTING stock always use the MITER GAUGE and never use the RIP FENCE.
  • 6. Procedure for RIPPING stock. 1. Adjust blade perpendicular to the table and set height. 2. Adjust the rip fence to desired width using a tape measure or ruler. 3. Lock the fence securely in place. 4. Place the jointed edge of the stock against the rip fence. 5. Stand off to the side opposite the rip fence and push stock through the blade using a push stick.
  • 7. Procedure for CROSSCUTTING stock. • Set miter gauge square to the blade • Put a pencil mark on the front edge of you stock • Set the correct blade height depending on material thickness. • Hold the jointed edge of the stock firmly against the miter gauge • Slide both the stock and miter gauge along the table to complete the cut.
  • 8. What is a STOP BLOCK? Why use it? A small block of wood clamped to the rip fence or miter gauge which acts as a length guide when cutting several pieces the same length.
  • 9. Operations Performed using the Table Saw • Ripping - A cutting action in the SAME direction as the grain of the wood • Crosscut - A cutting action ACROSS the grain of the wood • Miter - Set the miter gauge so your cut is not 90 degrees on the face of your wood
  • 10. Operations Con’t • Bevel - Tilting the saw blade so you cut an angle across the grain direction of the wood • Rabbet - A channel cut out of the wood the same direction as the grain using a dado head • Dado - A channel cut out of the wood the across the direction of the grain using a dado head
