    I am also new to using a table saw and have a Porter-Cable table saw. I appreciate your video and after seeing it, I’m going to make some changes. I’ve only used my saw one time so far, to rip a piece of plywood, but after watching some other videos on using table saws, I saw that they weren’t using the riv knife or plastic blade guard. So, I took mine off. Well, after seeing this video, I am going out right now and put them back on. Thanks again for the great safety training, and I look forward to seeing more of your table saw videos.

      Table saws will hurt you, if YOU let them. They are very safe when used properly but boy, if you break a rule, they can jump up and bite you in the hand, arm, face, and a**! Be careful and play it safe. It takes only a second of indiscretion to spend the rest of your life missing a finger, or an eye.

    Thanks George, very informative and affordable video. I feel that whatever your experience level, their is always room to learn. I too will be replacing my guards and kb pawls.

    This was a good start for any novice woodworker, and a nice refresher for veteran users as to why you don’t stand between the miter gauge slots. I think it would be additionally helpful to highlight the differences between safely making a rip cut versus a cross cut, which blades you should use and why.
