  • Table Saw Safety 101

    The most important aspect of equipment rentals is understanding how to use them safely. As useful as they can be, they can also be dangerous. Watch this video clip for a crash course in table saw safety.

    Before you approach the table saw, make sure your sleeves are rolled up past your elbow or you are wearing a short-sleeved shirt.
