Band Saw

Band saws are tools often used to cut pieces to a specific size. Here are some safety guidelines with these.

1) Keep your hand away from the blade. This is obvious but make sure to always keep your hand a safe distance as you need to guide the piece through the saw blade.

2) Make sure to keep your face a safe distance from the blade. Now, because you need to guide a piece through the saw blade, you need to be able to see what you are doing. However, this doesn't mean to be unsafe with where you keep your face.

3) Make sure you don't have a dull saw blade. This is dangerous because dull blades can slip and cause an injury.

4) Keep the machine off and unplugged when not in use.
