Kinda hard to do when I'm just doing cross cuts.


Ken, I'm putting my usual wise-ass stuff aside for this.

You've GOT to go out and get a good table saw book, immediately!

The possibility for injury is ever present. If something shoots back at you, you could need to go to the ER.
I've used "techniques" that you're not supposed to and I've come very close to paying for it. A piece 3/4" x 2.5" x 16" once hit me in the gut. I was wearing a t-shirt under a sweatshirt under a hoodie and the welt it left was huge and it hurt like hell, for a few days. Had that been my head...

Please be careful. You still need all of your digits to diaper.

Fixed that for you, Bob. A DVD would enable you to see the techniques, live....rather than the still photos a book offers.

Ken, let me see if I've got something here....

+1 I was ripping a door trim once using an ill advised technique and the trim was jettisoned from the saw and impaled the wall behind me. eek Thankfully I was off to the side and no harm was done except for a hole in my garage wall. I have been anally careful ever since as table saws now scare the crap out of me. I much prefer to use my compound miter saw whenever possible.

Edit - actually should have posted this in the 'stupidest thing you've done' thread that we had going a while back.

I totally agree, Mark, but I don't have a laptop or a TV in the shop. See, I learn something from you everyday. I did not know that dvd's were "live." Had I been aware, I never would have gone bluray. Or maybe you just think that, 'cause you've gone all 3-D like on us.

I think a book would be better in my case.

I'm not ripping anything for this project, and I'm trying to be extremely cautious, but the more info, the better.
