Kosta, You have a good head on your shoulders and seem to be on the right track with shop safety. You are right with shop clean up and safety. I try myself to just pick up after being in the shop, it helps to keep from things from piling up in the shop. A word about saw blade guards some manufactures make blade guards that don’t always function properly and are actually a safety hazard. With a splitter or riving knife they can still be safe. I myself use push blocks and push sticks as well. A word about the lawsuit, the guy removed all safety features including the fence. He then tried to rip a piece of flooring without the fence which was how he got hurt. Oh ya, I did find the April fools joke humorous as the security guard was in on it, and can see where some would feel it was in poor taste. Do you have a lot of teenagers that follow you, you speak well for your age group? Keep up the good work have been checking out your videos, great job!

-- I don't make mistakes, I have great learning lessons, Greg

Yea I usually clean up every few days. When I first got my tablesaw the blade guard was mounted to the splitter and it wasnt straight. So I use a small c clamp to hold my splitter and gaurd in place because the bolt and the face plate wernt holding the blade guard and splitter straight to the blade. If your really stupid that stuff will happen but for me even if it takes and extra minute to put the splitter back on I will. I have seen a kick back before and I scares the crap out of you.

Have your say...
