Safety Precautions on Sawing Machines

     Sawing machines have some special safety precautions that must be observed. These are in addition to those safety precautions described in Chapter 1. Here are some safety precautions that must be followed:
  • Keep hands away from the saw blade of the hacksawing machine or band sawing machine when in operation.

  • Ensure the power supply is disconnected prior to removal or installation of saw blades.

  • Use a miter guide attachment, work-holding jaw device, or a wooden block for pushing metal workpieces into the blade of the bandsaw wherever possible. Keep fingers well clear of the blade at all times.

  • When removing and installing band saw blades, handle the blades carefully. A large springy blade can be dangerous if the operator does not exercise caution.
