I was teaching Woodshop Safety this morning, and when I got to the miter saw, it popped, and a piece of metal came out at me. Someone had not moved the right fence out when they did a miter cut by tilting the blade. They had cut off part of the aluminum fence. The piece apparently went up into the saw. Aluminum flakes we’re all around the saw, so you didn’t clean up the work area.
With the piece still in the saw, it came out at me.
Please clean up, and if you make a mistake, report it, and pick the pieces up. This was left a safety hazard.
The saw is okay. It’s just missing an inch of the right back fence.
