ERIC STROMER: Hey, I’m Eric Stromer. Here’s your GMC Trade Secret.
You know, the table saw is the heart of any woodworker’s shop. And it has such versatility, you can’t even believe it. You can do whips. You can do crosscuts. You can do dado channels. You can do all sorts of great stuff when it comes to woodworking.
Now, there are some safety concerns to pay attention to. You definitely want to make sure you wear eye protection. Also, hearing protection is a must. Also, cutting any piece of wood six inches or smaller, I recommend using a push stick because it keeps your hand up and away from the saw blade, keeping you safe when working with this particular tool.
No loose-fitting clothing around the forearms. You definitely don’t want to wear gloves. You want to keep anything away from rotating parts of the saw that you can.
In terms of the height of the blade, I want you to keep the blade just above the material you’re cutting. One saw tooth high above that piece of wood is exactly the right dimension.
Another tool that has many of the same features as the table saw is the circular saw. What’s great about this, it’s a fraction of the cost of the table saw but it’s portable. But along the lines of it being portable, there are some safety concerns I want to talk to you about.
You absolutely never want to stand behind a circular saw when cutting. In case it binds, it will kick back. So you want to be off to the side. Also, you have to make sure that the material that you are cutting is well-supported. At the end of any cut, the saw will have a tendency to draw down, so you want to be prepared for that.
The table saw and the circular saw are great additions to any workshop. You just have to use them safely and responsibly.
