Tool thoughts #35: Kickback! Shop's closed for the day... (minimal injuries)

09-01-2012 03:43 PM by NedB | 10 comments »

I was trimming down a cutting board blank to width, had finished the cut and was pushing the cutting board through the end of the cut when I must have pushed sideways ‘just enough’. And I had a wooden frisbee spinning across the shop. Just barely caught my knuckle on its way by, as well as my turning muscle. (belly) my hand isn’t swollen, I’m just heavy. sorry to show this, but figure someone might learn from my stupidity well my nerves are shot now...

Shop Update #10: Shed update and my first kickback!

05-15-2011 04:24 AM by TheKingInYellow | 6 comments »

The ground is finally drying out and I have started clearing the area for the shed. I need to keep two feet away from the property line, so I’m going to frame out a 10’ x 8’ area with pressure treated 4×4 with rebar stakes to keep everything in place. An inch or two of quarter down gravel levelled inside the frame and then a raised 8’x6’ platform of pressure treated 2×4s with pressure treated decking on top. I’ll put paving stones or something ...

My Start #1: Building Office Cabinets

05-13-2011 04:13 PM by macatlin1 | 1 comment »

A few years ago I became interested in wood working again. It was probably after I bought a Craftsman table saw from a neighbor for $25. I already had a band saw, a drill press and a sander. But my previous foray was interrupted by a divorce, marriage and 4 moves. It was also about that time that my wife and I decided to convert a bedroom into an office. When we looked at cabinets in the local big box store sticker shock set in. The price was outrageous for a few upper kitchen cabinets m...

This is What Table Saw Kickback Looks Like (Warning: A Little Graphic)

10-21-2010 02:30 AM by PocketHole69 | 22 comments »

I have a Ridgid R4510 portable contractors saw- its the new and improved version that replaced the TS2410 and it’s a great saw. The problem is, when I bought it they did not yet have available a dado insert so I made my own out of 1/4” plywood and some leveling screws. Saturday night I was cutting dados on my table saw when my home made dado throat plate slid forward and caught on the dado blade. I was doing everything right- using a miter gauge with an extended fence, not us...

One Day Too Late

03-23-2010 05:31 AM by dustbunny | 29 comments »

I finally made myself a zero clearance insert for my table saw. This happened today only because I spent 4 hours in the emergency room yesterday to have my left palm stitched up. Yup, I have officially joined the ranks of the injured woodworkers; bitten by my own table saw. Like many, I removed the splitter to make dado cuts and did not replace it. Yesterday I ran some hard maple through the saw and noticed it was pinching on the back of the blade. Stupid thinks to herself, as she has many ti...

Kitchen Island Project #7: Kickback up close and personal

07-13-2009 06:01 PM by Jim | 10 comments »

I’ve been woodworking for over 20 years and have never experienced kickback on the tablesaw. I’ve heard about it, seen video clips about it … but never experienced it … this was about to change. I was completing the drawers for the kitchen island and had dry fit everything together. The drawers looked good so I went ahead and glued the joints. I was in the process of clamping when I noticed one of the drawers had a slight 1/16” gap in the joint. The panel for ...

Right Between the Eyes

12-17-2008 07:20 PM by TheFritz | 12 comments »

I was trimming some pieces of a “Spagnuolo” cutting board… well, its more like a trivet (8” square). I was using my father’s saw, he has nicer blade than me and I needed a glue line cut on these. I had just finished pushing the piece (8” long x 1”x 1”) through when BAM! I was hit hard, right between the eyes. I was using a push stick. I was standing off to the side. I was wearing eye protection. And the piece was too small for the guard to be on. What happened was that the glue for the las...
