Re: Winner Chosen for Tablesaw Safety Tip Challenge

My number one safety tip for working with my table saw: Stop when I am tired. Almost all mistakes I have seen and heard of was when a person wanted to get one more cut in, one more piece ripped before they called it a day or a night. Stop when you are tired. Concentration goes down and mistake happen when you are not at your best and alert. Fatigue takes us off of being at attention in front of the saw.


Re: What's your favorite hand or power tool?

I am just getting started in woodworking but right now my favorite power-tool is my Kreig portable router table with a Porter-Cable router mounted underneath. I have made so many things with this set up. So versatile and the table just goes under my workbench when done taking up no floor space.

Best hand tool is my cheap combination square. I want to get a good Starrett or Veritas some day but for now it works and no project is done without using it multiple times.
