Newbiee, still learning......until??
Got this safety issue in my head.
Have a Dewalt contractor saw that came with flip out of the way plastic guard with kickback pawls. Yes it is a major problem sometimes.
Then I see that splitters are on sale, and most of you seem to be using them. Considering ordering them along with zero clearence shield.
Also considering a overhead plastic guard with dust collection, which I have plans for.
But before I do..........
So that must mean you have done away your factory safey guards, using splitters. And depending on push blocks (sticks) to avoid kickbacks.
I got a major kick back awhile back that darn near done me in. (had the guard off) So I tend to tread lightly.
Had to take the factory guard off the other day and made a temporary splitter. That worked out great, not perfect just great.
are you guys working around splitters, vs guards, vs kick back pawls.
Believe I have answered my own questions, shall see..........
