Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw safety

Thought I’d start this in response to rhett’s “Do you unplug” topic.

So where’s your guard for your TS. On it, under it, in a cabinet or your not sure.

Mine is under my drillpress on a shelf.

Wow, if you could find a good use for TS guards and talk all the Lumberjocks into sending you their’s. Hmmm

Well, I don’t want to burst anybody’s bubble here, but who’s going to pay $5 for guards that from the looks of it nobody uses???

I have 2 in the shelves somewhere…

It’s around here some where…I think.
I removed it for clarity and never put it back on.

I do happen to use mine when it is possible. When done doing job that I can’t use it, it goes back on. Mainly because my stepson isn’t very good watching out about saftey.

Gene, still laughing. Mine was removed for clarity also. It hangs on the wall in the shop incase I ever find a use for it.

Like Tim, (Eagle1) mine only comes off when I am making a cut that precludes using the guard and when it comes off the riving knife goes on the saw. After making the cut I will replace the riving knife with the guard. It takes less than a minute to change them out so there really is no excuse not to use a guard.

never had one for the saw I use now, it was used
but on the other hand I have sold quite a few new ones to shops after OSHA comes in and say they have to have it, and of course they have threw the old one in the dump.
