Will using a table saw stand help you avoid the serious dangers that come with using a power saw on the jobsite?
How many times have you been using a circular saw (skill saw) or table saw and had serious kickback or binding resulting in injuries? Unfortunately, we all have had too many close calls and almost all of us have the scars to prove it.
“Whew, that was a close one!” you probably said to yourself.
Kickback and dangerous tipping points are just two of the safety problems you’ve likely experienced working with a makeshift cut station in the field. So what’s the best approach for overcoming these inherent dangers?
Using a Circular Saw at the Jobsite
The most challenging problem with using a skill saw on the jobsite is the absence of a convenient place to measure and make your cuts. Typically, you work on the ground, which requires you to bend over all day. Not only is this tiring, but it’s also a dangerous position from which to get the job done.
Most journeyman carpenters and woodworkers have had a close call with what is arguably the most dangerous tool on the job, leaving them thankful they still had all their fingers. And over time, the wear and tear on your knees and back can lead to arthritis and orthopedic challenges that slow you down, or worse, sideline you.
How a Table Saw Stand Addresses Safety Problems on the Job
A table saw stand or similar type of portable workbench can significantly improve your safety on the jobsite.
Choosing a saw table with adjustable legs will allow you to work on uneven terrain, making it easier and safer to make cuts and reducing the chances of saw kickback. This will also help you avoid dropped boards, pivot points and binding problems.
If you can combine the chop saw and skill saw function in a single cut station, it will allow you and your crew to move seamlessly and safely between the miter saw and circular saw.
If you could find a cutting station that combines all these functions AND allowed you to quickly and accurately make your measurements, it would arguably be the most valuable piece of equipment on the jobsite.
