Because the nature of the carpentry work is in direct contact with many machines and agents with a high level of danger. Therefore, protective equipment for carpentry should be equally concerned with the above.

Notes when using portable table saws

Using a safety saw is extremely important for a carpenter. Because most of them see saws as the main tool in their work. Besides, utilities are always accompanied by incalculable dangers that absolutely can happen. Fortunately, a portable table saw has been used for a long time by many people.  Common problems or dangers must be completely anticipated and avoided.

However, there are still many users do not know the principles of using safe saws.

Understand that, the following article offers some tips to help you use a safety saw to avoid potential risks. Let’s read and explore.

Do not wear gloves when using a table saw

Many people believe that gloves will protect your hands during use. This is only partly true because when wearing gloves if an occupational accident happens, gloves will somehow prevent the force of your hand. But gloves are the reason you lose the feeling of holding wood. As a result, keeping the material loose will cause unexpected problems.

Wear protective gear for eyes and ears

The eye is a very vulnerable part of the human body, especially during the cutting process, which often has materials and debris thrown off. Therefore, equipping yourself with a standard glass will help you avoid this accident.

The noise during the operation of the portable table saw is very large, hard to hear and jarring. If you do not use buttons, ear protectors, for a long time, this noise will affect your ears, and you may lose your hearing completely. This process will take place slowly, silently, so bring your protection to avoid the worst case.

Wear short clothes

Tie, wide and long clothes, and massive jewelry are prohibitions in this cutting job. Because, just a second not paying attention, these items will cause you to get into a work accident before you can react.

Comfortable posture, legs far enough to balance

This is very important when you are trying to cut your long pieces of wood that require you to step closer to the saw to continue working. After that, you create momentum and stop easily. You can also wear shoes with non-slip soles.

Use sticks to push wood

Sticks should be 6 inches wide or smaller. Keeping your hands close to the circular saw will not be cut. In general, 6 inches is the minimum distance considered safe although some other tips are 4 inches or 8 inches.

The body position does not lie on a straight line with the saw blade

In the process of using table saws, sawdust through the slot of the saw blade will be thrown out. And more specifically, in the worst case, the saw blade is loose and splashed out, you will not hit and lead to unwanted injuries. To avoid the situation of sawdust shot in the face, warn to lying in the line of the saw blade. 

Always disconnect the power before replacing the saw blade or any maintenance operation

This will help you avoid electric shock or unfortunately start the saw table and endanger yourself. Please arrange the socket in your view so you can check if you have disconnected or not

Make sure the saw has stopped spinning before adjusting the saw table

The reasons are very clear, the adjustment makes the hand too close to the blade, even a slow-moving saw blade with many sharp edges can still hurt you. Before you turn on the power, make sure the blade is not entangled in anything, which is entirely useful after changing or adjusting the saw blade. In other words, test the blade a few times without electricity to make sure there are no tools or materials to touch.

Keep the saw table smooth and clean

This idea is simple but also very important. Always be sure to clean the saw blades and saws regularly to avoid damage and rust to reduce your work efficiency.

Check the material before cutting. Find nails, screws, wood, …

To ensure that the operation does not occur such as falling screws, … causing danger to the user

To sum up

I have presented completely some safety rules when using the best portable table saws. These notes are also common considerations in the use of other saws such as hand saw, etc. Let’s always pay attention to protect yourself from unfortunate dangers that may occur.

Memorable summer vacation

Last summer. my mother took me and my sister to visit her hometown in Thanh Hoa. My mother is very busy because of her work.  It has been a long time since I have visited my grandparents. But last year was the year I was going to college. So, my mother let me return her hometown to help me feel more comfortable. So, I was extremely excited. My mother prepared a lot of gifts for my grandparents, my uncles, and the son of my uncle.

My mother’s hometown is far away from my house. We took about 6 hours by bus. All three of us felt extremely tired. But when I saw the rice paddies in my mother’s village, All tired like disappearing. After getting off the bus, we walked for about 5 minutes to my grandparents’ house. When we went to my grandparents’ gate. We were surprised to see my grandparents and uncles standing outside the waiting gate. My uncle ran to pawn for her mother. My grandmother hugged my mother and said: “I miss you so much”. That scene was extremely touching. After that, we went into the house. After sitting and talking for a while, we looked so tired.  So, my grandparents told us to take a shower and go to bed early. He added that tomorrow, the son of my uncle will lead us around the village. I was extremely excited.

The next day, when I woke up, my mother and my grandmother were preparing breakfast. As for my grandfather, I watched the morning news. Outside. People were preparing to go to the fields to work. Life here is very peaceful.

After breakfast,  Ha – Uncle Tuan’s son came to take us around the village. First of all, because I said I want to see people doing carpentry (Forget to tell you that my mother’s village is famous for making carpentry). Therefore, he took us to Vinh’s uncle who is the most famous carpenter in the village for me to see. When we arrived at my house. I saw Ving’uncle was using wood chisels to do something. Seeing us come, Vinh’s uncle stopped the work he was doing and ran to tell us to go into the house to drink water. But we told that wanted to see him do it. He said OK and told us we could go around and see. He is so kind. When going inside, I saw many workers doing something. I ran to ask them and they said that they are making a wooden picture. So great. I was very lucky to be able to see the process of making a wooden picture here.

They worked very professionally. Each person did one stage. One person used hand saws to cut logs into rectangles according to the size of the picture. After the cut was finished, a person would start carving the picture on the picture. Then. A person would use a hammer to close the picture frame. Finally, a person would use the drill bit to drill 2 small holes on the top of the painting to be able to hang on the wall.  Great. I learned a lot after watching them do. (Previously, I only studied carpentry on woodworking books). Time passes quickly. Although I wanted to see more. But it was dark. We had to come back home.  I was so sad.

The next day, He took us to Sam Son beach. This sea is extremely beautiful. We took a lot of photos here. Moreover, We played football, built sand castles and ate delicious seafood here. By evening. We went flying kites. That day was extremely happy.

On the last day, Ha took us to the biggest market here. There are many great things I wanted to buy. I finally bought my friends beautiful and unique wooden bracelets.

Time passed quickly. It’s time for us to return to Thai Nguyen. I never forget the fresh air and friendly people here. I am really stressed about the upcoming exam. This trip back my mother’s hometown helped me relax a lot. Certainly, after the university exam ended, I will return to this place. I also want to see Uncle Vinh doing more carpentry.
