    You know it's time to knock off for the day when

    You change the blade in the table saw and put the blade on backwards.

    I changed from my rip blade to the crosscut, put on the cross cut sled, and tried to cut a 2" piece of 8/4 hard maple, boy does it burn...

    Took me a few second to figure out what was wrong...
    Oh well time to knock off for the day. I did turn the blade around so it's ready in the morning.

    I really hate it when something like that happens first thing in the morning! Not a good way to start at day.
