Disconnect Power Before Blade Changes
Keep in mind, this applies to EVERY machine yo uhave that has a blade…
Bandsaw – table saw – jig saw – ETC!!!!
Whenever you need to change a blade or bit on a power tool, always disconnect the electricity to the tool. PERIOD!!!
SAFETY FIRST, right??
NOTE: Don’t just check to see that the switch is off – UNPLUG IT!!!!
Switches could get bumped or malfunction – never, EVER trust mechanical items… More than the fair share of woodworkers have lost fingers (or worse) by forgetting this simple but very important rule. I’ve seen woodworkers even go as far as to affix the blade wrenches to the power cables so there is NO chance they’ll forget to disconnect the power.
Stay smart and safe folks…
Next safety rule #3… Don’t be a dope, OK?
