Tablesaw Safety Around the Clock
Read up on a tablesaw controversy that could change the industry
In this morning’s in-box, I found a note from reader Rick Williams of Tuscon, who included this photo. Rick said he had his aftermarket miter gauge set to cut at 45 degrees, but forgot to readjust the gauge’s aluminum fence, leaving it in the blade’s path.
“Unlike the operator, the blade stopped at exactly the right time,” Rick wrote. “Nothing got hurt except my pocketbook.”
Rick says it’s now the most expensive clock he owns, but who knows – if he checks it often enough, it might just pay for itself.
How do you remind yourself to stay safe in your shop?
