Re: You Can't Beat the Physics of Kickback

My tablesaw and I have come to an understanding and a level of mutual respect. In other words, I have surrendered all demands from it and am in total compliance to it!

In all seriousness, I actually have a contractors table saw and the first couple times I experienced kickback from that, it really rattled me. Learned my lesson without losing any digits thankfully.

Re: UPDATE: The Unplugged Woodshop: Handcrafted Projects for the Home & Workshop by Tom Fidgen
