dangerous practices such as the
following:
■ Setting blade depth incorrectly.
■ Sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece.
■ Twisting the blade while making a cut.
■ Making a cut with a dull, gummed up, or
improperly set blade.
■ Supporting the workpiece incorrectly.
■ Forcing a cut.
■ Cutting warped or wet lumber.
■ Operating the tool incorrectly or misusing
the tool.
To lessen the chance of kickback,
follow these safety practices:
■ Keep blade at the correct depth setting.
The depth setting should not exceed 1/4 in.
below the material being cut.
■ Inspect the workpiece for knots or nails
before cutting. Never saw into a knot or
nail.
■ Make straight cuts. Always use the rip
fence when rip cutting. This helps prevent
twisting the blade.
■ Use clean, sharp, and properly set blades.
Never make cuts with dull blades.
■ Support the workpiece properly before
beginning a cut.
■ Use steady, even pressure when making a
cut. Never force a cut.
■ Do not cut warped or wet lumber.
■ Hold the saw firmly with both hands and
keep your body in a balanced position so
as to resist the forces if kickback should
occur.
