A kickback
occurs
when a part of the workpiece

1.
R_pping
is the process of sawing
the workpiece
by
feeding it into the saw blade when using the fence as a
guide and as a positioning
device to obtain
the desired
width of cut.
WARNING:
NEVER

BEFORE
RIPPING,
MAKE
SURE
THE
GUARD
AND

BLADE
IS

NEVER
RIP
WORKPIECES SHORTER THAN THE SAW BLADE
DIAMETER.
2.
Since the work is pushed along the fence, it must have a
reasonably
straight
edge in order
to make
sliding
contact
with the fence. Also, the work must make solid
contact
w_th the table,
so that
it will
not wobble.
Provide a straight
edge, even if this means temporary
nailing of an auxiliary
straight-edged
board to the work.
If the workpiece
is warped, turn the hollow side down.
3.
Always
use the
saw
guard
and
make
sure
the
anti-kickback
rod is correctly
set. Wood cut with
the
grain tends to spring the kerf closed and bind the blade,
a_ld a kickback
could occur.
4.
Stand
a little
to one side of center
to avoid being
sprayed w_th sawdust and to be clear of work in case of
kickback.
5.
When ripping short or narrow work, always use a push
stick applied to the sectton of the workpiece
between
the blade and fence . .. push the work past the blade so
n _s clear of the blade. This procedure
will minimize

It may be necessary to loosen the yoke clamp

the saw blade is not aligned with the direction
in which
it is forced to travel. This diagram shows the saw blade
"heeling"
to the right.
Results of "heeling",
even to a
minor
degree, can be detected
by the tooth marks left
on the edge of the saw kerf (cut edge) of the board.
When using a hollow ground
blade, even a small degree
of "heel"
will cause the wood to smoke as a result of

Checking the Saw Blade for Heel (Left and Right)
(1) Place a square against the rip fence and the saw
blade. The long leg of the square must be held
firmly against the rip fence and the short leg
must not touch any "set out" teeth on the saw
blade.

(2) If the square does not touch the blade at the two
points
shown
by arrows,
one of two types of
heel exists. The two types of heel are illustrated
in views"A"
and "B". To correct for either type
of heel condition,
