Using the Table Saw Safely
The safe use of smaller table saws, like the Byrnes saw, will be the subject of the presentation. Though smaller than full-sized table saws, model-sized saws can still take a finger off or severely injure the modeler if they are used in an unsafe manner.
Kurt will show how to perform rip cuts, cross cuts, lap joints, miters and other common operations in a safe and efficient manner. Many modelers say they are totally intimidated by the dangers of the table saw and that they are hesitant to use the saw they purchased. After this program, these modelers should be less hesitant to use their saw. And those modelers who routinely use their saws will appreciate the tips on proper saw set-up.
At a minimum this presentation will provide a helpful review of safety tips and might even prevent an injury due to complacency.
