Safety Tip: A 20th Tablesaw Safety Tip

I am one of the volunteers at the Northeastern Woodworkers Association (NWA) . We are a non-profit organization for woodworkers, both amateur and professional, based in New York's Capital District.

I have just read your NINETEEN WAYS to Help Avoid Injuring Your Fingers on a Tablesaw and would like to suggest one more to make it an even 20.

One safety practice we stress in our shop is "unplug the machine whenever you are making blade adjustments or changes."

This is practiced on all power equipment. On cordless power tools remove the battery to prevent accidental startup.
