Push Stick; if you are not the lucky owner of a saw with the SawStop safety system, you are going to need a push stick, which comes in handy when you need to slide the wood through the blade. Having your hands too close to the saw blade is never a good thing, so it is a wise idea to rely on a push stick. You can get one at just about any shop that sells woodwork supplies, or make one yourself. There are plenty of tutorials on line to teach you how to do so.
Blade Types. Rip vs. Crosscut blades the two basic types of table saw blades are rip and crosscut blades. Rip blades have a smaller number of teeth and larger gullets, which means there's more room to remove the shavings and dust. These blades are designed to cut along the grain of the material on the table, but although they cut faster, the resulting cuts are rougher.
Choosing the wrong blade will result in poor woodwork at best, and turn into a potential accident at worst. Now, in order to get the most out of the saw you paid for with your hard-earned cash, and to avoid any saw-related accidents, you need to learn a thing or two about the blades. This short guide I put together should teach you what you need to know. Check it out.
