Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey there, my friends! Today we’re going to talk about some safety tips on working with aluminium saws. It’s important to keep safety in mind whenever you’re working with any type of machinery, and saws are no exception. So let’s dive in!

First and foremost, always wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when working with an aluminium saw. This includes eye protection, such as safety glasses or a face shield, and hearing protection, such as earplugs or earmuffs. Additionally, you should wear gloves and a dust mask to protect your hands and lungs from any debris that may be created during the cutting process.

When setting up your saw, make sure it is on a stable and level surface. If the saw is unstable, it can cause it to tip over during use, which can be extremely dangerous. It’s also important to ensure that the saw blade is sharp and properly aligned with the saw bed. A dull blade can cause the saw to bind up or kick back, potentially causing injury.

Before making any cuts, be sure to read the manufacturer’s instructions and familiarize yourself with the saw’s features and controls. Make sure you know how to turn the saw on and off, how to adjust the blade depth and angle, and how to adjust the fence (if applicable).

When cutting, always keep your hands and fingers away from the saw blade. Use a push stick or other tool to guide the material through the saw, and never use your hands to push the material through. This will help prevent your fingers from getting too close to the blade and potentially being cut.

It’s also important to never reach across the saw blade while it is spinning. This may seem like common sense, but accidents can happen when we’re not paying attention. Always turn the saw off and wait for the blade to come to a complete stop before reaching across the saw bed.

If you need to make a cut that requires your hands to be close to the blade, use a sacrificial fence. This is a piece of scrap material that is attached to the fence on the saw, creating a gap between the blade and your hands. This can help prevent your fingers from accidentally slipping into the blade while making the cut.

Lastly, never leave the saw unattended while it is still running. Always turn the saw off and unplug it when you are finished using it. This will help prevent any accidents from occurring if someone accidentally turns the saw on while you’re not around.

In conclusion, working with aluminium saws can be dangerous if proper safety precautions are not taken. Always wear the appropriate PPE, ensure that the saw is stable and the blade is sharp, and familiarise yourself with the saw’s features and controls before making any cuts. Keep your hands and fingers away from the blade, never reach across the saw while it is still running, and use a sacrificial fence if needed. And lastly, always turn the saw off and unplug it when you are finished using it. Stay safe out there, my friends!
