KICKBACK
Kickback
occurs
when the blade stalls rapidly and the saw is driven
back towards you. Blade stalling is caused by any action which pinches
the blade in the wood.
IMPORTANT: The best guard against kickback is to avoid
dangerous practices.

Kickback is Caused By:
1. Incorrect Blade Depth Setting (See Fig. 4).
2. Sawing into knots or nails in the workpiece.
3. Twisting the blade while making a cut.
4. Making a cut with a dull, gummed up,
or improperly set blade.
5. Not providing proper support for
workpiece (See Fig. 5).
6. Forcing a cut.
7. Cutting warped or wet lumber.
8. Tool misuse or incorrect operating
procedures.
9. Contacting the workpiece with blade
at less than full speed.
To Lessen the Chance of Kickback:
1. ALWAYS use the correct blade depth
setting. The correct blade depth setting
for all cuts should not be more than
1/4-inch below the material to be cut
(see Fig. 6).
