All general MN Safety policies of course apply to use of this tool, as do safety policies for the containing shop area and safety practices prescribed in our classes and/or in detailed tool documentation, regardless of whether they're repeated here.
  • The saw is loud and throws hot chips. Wear eye and ear protection.
  • Check blade to make sure it is intact and that it turns freely.
  • Use the vise to hold metal; do not use your hand.
  • Cut only new (mild) steel and non-ferrous metal. No hardened steel, junk mystery metal, tools, axles, HSS tool bits, etc.
  • Allow blade to come up to speed. Cut smoothly. Don’t force it, bump it, or make it bog down.
