Equipment / Mitre Saw / Training

Mitre Saw Training

Training and induction will start with a tour of the tool introducing all its parts. The following points will be covered.

  • Keep hands well away from the spinning blade.
  • Take special care to mount small items in a way that makes it impossible for them to jam against the fence, or get drawn through the gap in it.
  • Small items must not be cut with this tool because they cannot be held safely. If you were to try to hold it by hand you might let it move a little which could make the blade grab it and force it into the gap in the fence. This could pull your hand into the blade. Use a hand saw to cut small items.
  • Secure only one side of the work against the fence. If you are using a stop (to cut multiple pieces to the same length) then secure the workpiece on the same side as the stop so that when the cut is finished one side is free to move away from the blade.
  • Pull the saw towards you, turn it on and then drop it onto the work and push it to the backstop. Wait until the blade has stopped before lifting it again.
  • Never cross arms during cutting.
  • When cutting metal make sure the hot metal chips cannot hit sawdust from previous wood cuts.


Sessions are advertised on http://meetup.makespace.org
