### When using a band saw, you should maintain a(n) _____ - inch margin of safety.

2
Explanation
When using a band saw, it is important to maintain a 2-inch margin of safety. This means that there should be a distance of at least 2 inches between the material being cut and any part of the operator's body or other objects. This margin of safety helps to prevent accidents and injuries by ensuring that there is enough space for the saw blade to operate without coming into contact with anything other than the intended material.

### Sawing stock to reduce its thickness is known as ________.

resawing
Explanation
Resawing refers to the process of cutting a piece of stock, such as wood, along its width to reduce its thickness. This technique is commonly used in woodworking to create thinner boards from thicker ones, allowing for more versatility in projects. Resawing can be done by hand using a handsaw or by using a specialized machine called a bandsaw.

### The process of cutting several pieces at one time is known as _____  _______. (two words)

Explanation
Pad sawing refers to the process of cutting multiple pieces at once. It involves using a pad saw, which is a type of handsaw with a narrow blade, to cut through several materials simultaneously. This method is commonly used in woodworking or when there is a need to make multiple identical cuts efficiently. Pad sawing saves time and effort by allowing for simultaneous cutting, making it a useful technique in various industries and projects.

### To crosscut using a band saw, you should use a(n) _______ gauge.

miter
Explanation
When crosscutting using a band saw, it is recommended to use a miter gauge. A miter gauge is a device that helps guide the workpiece at a desired angle while making a crosscut. It allows for precise and accurate cuts, especially when needing to cut at specific angles or make angled cuts. By using a miter gauge, the user can ensure that the workpiece is held securely and at the correct angle, resulting in clean and precise crosscuts.

### The best way to cut a circle using a band saw is to use a(n) ______ jig.

circle
Explanation
The best way to cut a circle using a band saw is to use a circle jig. A circle jig is a tool that helps guide the saw blade along the desired circular path, ensuring a precise and accurate cut. It typically consists of a base that attaches to the band saw table and an adjustable arm or pivot point that allows the user to set the desired radius of the circle. By using a circle jig, the user can achieve clean and smooth cuts in a circular shape with ease.

### When operating a band saw, you should stand facing the blade and slightly to the left.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When operating a band saw, it is recommended to stand facing the blade and slightly to the left. This positioning allows the operator to have a clear view of the cutting area and better control over the material being cut. Standing to the left also reduces the risk of being hit by any debris or offcuts that may be ejected from the blade during the cutting process.

• 17.

### Move the stock into the blade as slowly as possible to avoid burning the wood.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Moving the stock into the blade as slowly as possible does not help avoid burning the wood. In fact, moving the stock slowly can increase the chances of burning because it allows the blade to stay in contact with the wood for a longer period of time, generating more heat. To avoid burning the wood, it is recommended to move the stock through the blade at a steady and moderate pace, ensuring that the blade cuts smoothly without excessive friction.

### In general, you should make long cuts before short cuts.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement suggests that it is better to take longer routes or methods rather than finding shorter and quicker ways. However, this is not necessarily true in all situations. In certain cases, taking shortcuts can be more efficient and save time and effort. Therefore, the given statement is false.

### You should never backtrack out of a corner of a rectangular opening because doing so will bind the saw blade.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Backtracking out of a corner of a rectangular opening will not bind the saw blade. This statement is incorrect because backtracking can actually be a necessary technique when using a saw in tight spaces. Backtracking allows the saw to safely navigate corners and continue cutting without binding the blade. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

### When cutting sharp curves, it is a good idea to make several relief cuts from the outside edge in the waste stock.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
When cutting sharp curves, making relief cuts from the outside edge in the waste stock is a good idea. Relief cuts help to prevent the wood from binding or splitting as the saw blade moves through the curve. By making several relief cuts, the waste stock is divided into smaller sections, making it easier to remove and reducing the likelihood of damaging the desired shape of the curve. Therefore, it is recommended to make relief cuts when cutting sharp curves, making the statement "True" accurate.
