Inspect the work for knots or nails before beginning a
cut. Knock out any loose knots with a hammer. Never
saw into a loose knot or nail.
Always use the rip fence when rip cutting. Use the miter
gauge when cross cutting. This helps prevent twisting
the wood in the cut.
Align the fence to be parallel with the saw blade. A
misaligned fence will pinch the workpiece against the
saw blade and create kickback.
Always use a clean, sharp, and properly set blade. Never
make cuts with a dull blade. Never use a warped saw
blade or saw blade with cracked or broken teeth.
Sharp and properly set saw blade minimize binding,
stalling and kickback.
To avoid pinching the blade, support the workpiece
properly before beginning a cut.
Support large panels to minimize the risk of saw blade
pinching and kickback. Large panels tend to sag under
their own weight. Support(s) must be placed under all
portions of the panel overhanging the table top.
When making a cut, use steady, even pressure. Never
force cuts.
Do not cut wet or warped lumber.
Use extra caution when cutting some prefinished or
composition wood products as the anti-kickback pawls
may not always be e ective.
Use extra caution when making a cut into blind areas of
assembled workpieces. The protruding saw blade may
cut objects that can cause kickback.
Use extra caution when cutting a workpiece that is
twisted, knotted, warped or does not have a straight
edge to guide it with a miter gauge or along the fence.
A warped, knotted, or twisted workpiece is unstable and
causes misalignment of the kerf with the saw blade,
binding and kickback.
Always guide your workpiece with both hands or with
push sticks and/or push blocks. Keep your body in a
balanced position to be ready to resist kickback should it
occur. Never stand directly in line with the blade. Always
position your body on the same side of the saw blade as
the fence. Kickback may propel the workpiece at high
velocity towards anyone standing in front and in line
with the saw blade.
Never reach over or in back of the saw blade to pull or
to support the workpiece. Accidental contact with the
saw blade may occur or kickback may drag your ngers

into the saw blade.
Never hold and press the workpiece that is being cut
o against the rotating saw blade. Pressing the
workpiece being cut o against the saw blade will
create a binding condition and kickback.
Use of a featherboard will help hold the workpiece
securely against the saw table or fence when making
non-through cuts such as rabbets, dado cuts. A
featherboard helps to control the workpiece in the
event of a kickback.
Never cut more than one workpiece, stacked vertically
or horizontally. The saw blade could pick up one or
more pieces and cause kickback.
Clean the saw, blade guard, under the table insert, and
any areas where saw dust or scrap workpieces may
Use the right type of blade for the cut being made.
Always use the riving knife for every operation where it
is allowed. The use of this device will greatly reduce the
risk of kickback.
