  • Hammer DrillIs used to drill holes in masonry

  • Jig SawUses a back and forth (up and down) motion to cut curves

  • General Safety RulesCare should be taken to use guards and to keep hands and clothing away from cutting parts of tools and equipment

  • General Safety RulesAll safety procedures should be followed

  • Band SawShort or sharp curves in wood require a narrow blade or less

  • Band SawTo help prevent the wood from binding, the miter gauge and the rip fence should not both be used at the same time

  • Band SawA band saw used to cut metal must have a speed control that will slow the blade speed, and a metal cutting blade must be used

  • DrillA center punch should be used to dent the metal before starting to drill a hole in metal

  • DrillThe bit should be tight in the chuck, and the chuck key removed before using a drill

  • JointerThe depth of cut should be about 1/16 each pass

  • JointerThe depth of cut is determined by adjusting the front in-feed table

  • JointerThe last pass on each edge of the board should be with the grain for a smooth cut

  • PlanerAbout 1/16 of wood should be removed on each pass

  • PlanerNails, dirt and loose knots should be remove before the board is planed

  • PlanerThe thin end of a rough cut board should be put in the planer first

  • PlanerThe final pass on each side of the board should be with the grain to get a smooth finish
