The table saw is one of the largest power tools used in the scene shop. It is never to be used with out proper supervision and proper safety practices.
This is a Delta 12" Table saw outfitted with a Beismeyer(sp?) rip fence and blade guard. .In this photo, it is the up position to show the blade. This is one of the best blade guards that I've ever worked with. When the guard is down, the wood lifts it as it passes underneath. bb4.jpg
IT WON'T KEEP YOUR HANDS FROM SLIDING UNDERNEATH IT! IT'S THERE TO REMIND YOU TO KEEP YOUR HANDS AWAY FROM THE BLADE! bb5.jpg
Remember to always wear safety goggles and hearing protection! bb6.jpg
Move the fence over until the line is on the measurement you need. bb7.jpg
Push down on the locking handle to hold the fence in place. bb8.jpg
