All of my measuring and squaring tools were spread out throughout the shop. I wanted them all in one place, so I made this.

Hello Chris,

thanks for your nice movie and you great ideas.
I only was a little scared, when I see how you work with your table saw.
Maybe I pay extra attention because I already had a accident with my table saw.
But if I was you look around how you can work safely with your table saw
before there will be really a accidents, there are also a lot of videos about this topic
I don’t want to be the wise guy, but I only want to prevent that your little son gets the fright
off his life, my children can all talk about it.

Greetings and all the best,

Great video. Please make a zero clearance insert. When the piece of wood fell in, it gave me the chills.

Nice idea and good video. You should make some zero clearance plates for your table saw. While cutting that slim board, there is a considerable gap there. Be careful buddy.

Thank you all for your concern. I don’t know why craftsman thought the insert that came with the saw was a good idea. I will look into making a ZCI.
