Unfortunately, kickback is not a specific topic of discussion in my safety presentation given the broad range of topics and time available. Once the COVID-19 issue is behind us, I’m happy to run another of my 3-hour tablesaw training workshops. I can’t remember the last time I ran one but I’m pretty sure it was at Cook St.
Tablesaw kickback accounts for far more tablesaw injuries than actual contact with a spinning blade and can, in fact, cause one to contact the spinning blade. In my tablesaw class I spend quite a bit of time explaining the different types of kickback, how and why they occur and how to prevent them from occurring to you.
