I have read this blog a while ago and I find it very informative specially for those who are exposed to daily band saw operations.

I think that was written with a metal cutting bandsaw in mind, where the blade is moving and the stock is clamped. Not that a woodworking bandsaw won’t cause serious injury, but it’s much safer than a tablesaw as it cannot kickback.

You’re right, John. It applies to operating a metal cutting band saw though I still find it relevant to operating saws. No matter what type of a band saw machine it is, the same safety precautions must be adhered.
