Table Saw Safety Features. The most noticeable and probably the most important safety feature is the blade guard, because it's very effective at keeping your fingers away from the danger zone – the saw blade. Truth is though, that many woodworkers don't like the blade guard because they can't measure and see the cuts if it's attached, especially if the guard is not made out of Plexiglas. They also complain that things like changing the blade or removing stuck wood take more time, so they often decide NOT to use the blade guard.
One thing you have to keep in mind is to slide the wood a bit slower than you normally would because the movement of the gouge can move it out of place. To make sure this doesn't happen you can secure the board to the gouge using a clamp. Thanks to a miter gouge you can also make compound cuts. Compounds cuts are made by setting the miter gouge at a desired angle and bevel of the saw blade at the same time.
Safety Considerations. When making cross-cuts avoid using the miter gouge and fence at the same time. Why? Because when you slide the board towards the saw using a miter gouge the board will most likely bind against the fence. At this point I should remind you this will most likely cause kickback which will throw the board back at you, and at high speed! This is something you definitely don't want to happen – ever. My advice would be to dismount the fence, or set it a decent distance away from the board.
