Some of the experienced woodworkers I see online are not using these mechanisms. Is that because they are experienced and know how to avoid accidents that these safeguards prevent?

Sometimes when people are filming, they remove the guards etc for a clear shot to what is happening for the video. They usually will mention this somewhere, or in writing. Other times there may be times where a certain technique requires the guard not be in place. I would highly recommend using the guards whenever possible.


Just trying to get an idea here, can you give me an example of a procedure where an anti-kickback knife or riving is absolutely necessary?
