I am known for ripping wood freehand on a tablesaw, when the width varies. I don’t think I have used a blade cover on my table saw since I knew I could take it off.

Also, I have been known to use my mitre saw incorrectly, as well.

I think, when you get used to a tool, you use it on a continual basis, you begin to learn little tricks you can do with that tool, though it may never have been made to do them.

I have learned to curb this misuse, recently, though, when I had a piece of wood shoot back at me and almost break a rib, or 3.
