    he should be using push sticks
    ideally no part off your body should cross the edge off the table
    you should stand slightly to one side but in a comfortable way without overeaching
    you should keep 6" away from the blade
    and never have any part off your body over the blade
    and incase you think blade gaurds will save you they wont on all but the best saws if you fall on them they will defect and be cut through in a fraction off a second

    :oops:

    That made my blood run cold!
    Of course it doesn't help that he's cutting solid wood with a full length fence either. Nowhere for it to go if it springs when it's cut.
    For anyone who thinks. "I know what I'm doing" until you've been unlucky enough to have a kickback you don't know what it's like. Spindles and big router tables in particular are frightening things without the right guards. The power they can reject the workpiece with is enormous.
    Been into a commercial workshop in the last ten years and seen a bloke putting tiny bits of wood through a spindle with no guards or pushblocks. Heard later the same bloke had his fingers in it.

    Looks to me as if there are quite a few donts shown there. OTOH anyone who uses woodworking machines has at some time in the past taken a "bit of a shortcut". As said above "Guards removed for cleaning"

    the problem is what people see will be assumed as "NORMal"
    i was trying to advise what the normal should actually be
    so when they choose to cut any corners they are aware there are dangers with safety devices disabled or removed ;)

    bejesus how close was he in losing his fingers.
    thats 1 lucky guy.
    i wont even take the riving knife off my skilly,which is something ive seen peeps do(for some strange reason)

    if i want to cut a groove or a rebate then the router comes out.
    or if you have 1 with the facility a planer,mine has a rebating guide fitted to it.
