KICKBACK. Kickback happens when the workpiece is thrown back toward the operator at a high rate of
speed. Until you have a clear understanding of kickback, how it occurs, and how to prevent it, DO NOT
operate the table saw with this sliding table attachment!
CLEARANCE. To prevent flying metal debris causing serious injuries, always make sure the sliding table
crosscut fence will not contact the blade before starting the table saw.
WORKPIECE CONTROL. If the workpiece should unexpectedly move and bind with the blade, kickback
could occur. Always make sure the workpiece is placed in a stable position on the tables and is either
supported by the rip fence or the crosscut fence during cutting operations.
OPERATOR POSITION. If kickback occurs, the workpiece will be ejected in a path that is in-line with the
blade. Never have any part of your body in-line with the cutting path of the blade during operation.
AWKWARD POSITIONS. Avoid awkward body and hand positions where a sudden slip could cause your
hands to move into the spinning blade.
REACHING OVER SAW BLADE. To prevent your hands or arms accidently contacting the spinning blade,
never reach behind or over the blade during cutting operations.
USING RIP FENCE WITH SLIDING TABLE CROSSCUT FENCE. When using the rip fence as a stop block
for the crosscut fence, the rip fence must be in front of the blade. Otherwise, the workpiece could bind
against the rip fence and kickback could occur.
REMOVING WORKPIECES. To avoid accidental contact with the spinning blade, always turn the saw OFF
and wait until the blade is completely stopped before removing any part of the workpiece from the
