Blade RPM. The maximum speed of a blade is usually expressed in RPM (revolutions per minute). One thing you need to look for is the speed of the table saw, which must never exceed the speed of the blade. Blades are designed to rotate at a certain speed, and using it on a table saw which exceeds that speed will cause the blade to break apart due to centrifugal force. This is pretty much everything you need to know about blades. If you decide you want to learn even more about blades and their properties, this should serve as a good base for you to build upon.
In Conclusion. As you can see there is not much to making rip, cross, or compound cuts. Using the fence and miter gouge is something you can get the hang of very quickly. But as easy as it is, the biggest mistake you can make is to become complacent when using a table saw. Remember you are handling a very powerful tool with an incredibly sharp blade that rotates at several thousand RPM. Always make sure to follow the safety measures, and you will be fine.
Splitter and Anti Kickback PawlsOne of the leading causes of table saw related accidents is kickback, which occurs when a piece of wood gets ejected at high speed, back toward the operator. This can cause some serious injuries. This happens when the wood binds between the fence and the blade, and then gets caught by the teeth on the back on the blade. In order to prevent that from happening, many table saws are fitted with a splitter. A splitter is basically a small vertical blade made of metal or plastic, which holds the Cerf open behind the table saw blade. It's a simple solution that works, up to a certain point.
