Prevention of Table Saw Accidents

table saw accident

While table saws are dangerous, safety devices exist to help reduce the number of accidents. A list of some of the more common safety devices is below:

Featherboard: A featherboard safely pushes the wood toward the blade while keeping fingers clear. While a featherboard reduces the likelihood of a kickback, it will not restrain the board in the event of a kickback.

Splitter: A splitter is a stationary blade mounted behind the saw blade, which helps prevent kickback. For maximum effectiveness, the splitter should be thicker than the saw blade but thinner than the saw kerf.

Riving Knife: A riving knife is similar to a splitter except it is fixed relative to the blade rather than the table and it has teeth to grip the wood if it kicks back from the saw blade.

Eye protection: Solid, quality googles can help protect your eyes from flying debris and help eliminate eye injuries.
