Table saw equipment is usually used in DIY home projects. That’s why for today’s article, we’re shifting our focus to these table saws by giving you a few tips that will help you get the most from your table saw:
Set the proper blade depth.
Before starting any cutting projects with your table saw, remember to set the proper blade depth. Setting the blade too deep can cause problems, and is more dangerous than a correctly set blade. Aside from that, the saw is more likely to bind and kick back if the blade is set too deep, which is likely to cause damage to your cutting project and to your saw equipment as well. With this in mind, you must also consider the diamond blade you are using and make sure that it is the right blade for your saw.
Install Extendable Roller Stands
Some of us prefer to work alone, and if that’s the case then consider using a roller stand to extend the reach of your saw’s table. But be sure to correctly set the rollers at the right height and that they are precisely perpendicular to the saw blade. A roller that is slightly turned can pull your work on another direction which can cause binding or a dangerous kickback. You can avoid this problem by using quality ball rollers.
Build a temporary table.
If you want to finish the job easier then building a temporary table may actually help you. A table can be helpful when cutting thin sheets like paneling. But just be careful not to block the access to your saw’s emergency shutoff switch and other safety features. You can build a decent table by using saw horses and a few sheets of melamine-coated particle board.
Saw binding can lead to a dangerous kickback. You can prevent this from happening by making sure that the end of the board you’re cutting is free to fall on the floor. Don’t clamp, hold, or otherwise, restrict the cutoff piece from falling off. Also, remember that falling piece can take a sliver of wood with it when cutting is near its completion so try to avoid that as well.
Secure the saw.
Holes that are used to securely fasten the saw for a stable work surface. Securing your saw ensures that the equipment won’t move or vibrate during the cutting process, allowing you to work safer and easier. Plus, it also guarantees that your cut will be smooth and perfect as possible. Besides, it only takes a few minutes to secure the saw and reverse it.
