Band Saw Safety Rules
1.
Wheel guard doors must be closed and the blade properly adjusted before
turning on the machine.
2.
Adjust the upper guard assembly so that it is approximately ¼” above the
wood.
3.
Allow the saw to reach full speed before starting to feed the work.
4.
The wood must be held flat on the table when cutting.
5.
Feed the wood only as fast as the teeth will remove the material easily.
6.
If the saw stalls in a cut, turn the power off and reverse the blade by hand
to free it.
7.
Maintain a 4” margin of safety! Your hands MUST be at least 4” away
from the blade when the saw is running.
8.
Plan ahead saw cuts to avoid backing out of curves whenever possible.
9.
Make turns carefully and use relief cuts so that the blade does not twist
and break.
10. STOP the machine before backing out of a LONG curve cut.
11. ROUND stock should NOT be cut unless mounted securely on a jig and
the teacher is present!
12. If you hear a clicking noise, turn the machine OFF! This indicates a crack
or broken blade. If the blade breaks shut the saw off and contact your
teacher, DO NOT open the wheel doors yourself!
13. Turn the saw off as soon as you are finished with your work. Apply the
foot break to stop the blade, NEVER walk away with the blade in motion!
