« Part 15: STUMPED? Q&A's from "Stupid Bandsaw Trick, Resawing & Straight Sawing with the Shopsmith Bandsaw" Part 16 of Getting the Most out of your Shopsmith series Part 17: SUPER EASY Ripping Support for your Shopsmith or other small DIY Table Saw. »

James Hamilton AKA: Stumpy Nubs posted an excellent video this past weekend talking about safety and saw guard use among Youtube content creators and the myth that using guards is somehow unmanly.

In this video response (of sorts) I go over how to install the modern Shopsmith Mark V and Mark 7 upper and lower saw guards. It’s not difficult and it could save your hand. And doing miss what happens at 5:55, when I do a real-time conversion of the Shopsmith Mark V from Drill Press to the Table Saw.

And always remember, “Don’t use remaining fingers as push sticks.”

Be sure to watch James’ excellent video “Table Saw Blade Guard Myths BUSTED!” here:
