A Bandsaw Safety Tip

Band saw safety is a real problem.

To keep my fingers away from the dangerous blade zone, I paint a coat of red paint 2 inches on either side of the blade.

I always remember to keep my fingers "outside the red zone". The red is a visual sign of danger and shows up very well when I concentrate on making that delicate cut.

If cuts have to be made inside the red zone, I use a jig to hold the material.
