SUPPORT LONG WORKPIECES
Long workpieces require extra
supports. The supports should
be placed along the workpiece
so it does not sag. The support
should allow the workpiece
lay flat on the base of the saw
and work table during the cutting
operation. Use the work clamp or
a C-clamp to secure the workpiece.
To avoid serious personal injury, ALWAYS keep your hands outside
the "no hands zone"(red lines); at least 3 inches from blade. Also, NEVER perform any
cutting operation "freehand" (i.e. without holding workpiece
against the fence); the blade
could grab the workpiece, causing it to slip and twist.
