      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    It is important to ask permission before using the bandsaw because it is a powerful and potentially dangerous tool. By asking for permission, you demonstrate respect for the tool and for the safety guidelines that may be in place.

    When cutting curves you do not need to make relief cuts.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    When cutting curves, it is necessary to make relief cuts. Relief cuts are small incisions made along the curve to prevent the wood from splitting or the blade from getting stuck. These cuts allow for easier maneuverability and smoother cuts, ensuring the desired curve is achieved. Therefore, the statement that relief cuts are not needed when cutting curves is false.

    If the blade breaks while using the bandsaw you should?

    • A.

      Start yelling for the instructor. 

    • B.

      Walk away and don't tell anyone. 

    • C.

      Get the fire extinguisher. 

    • D.

      Turn off the saw, step back, and notify the instructor.

    Correct Answer
    D. Turn off the saw, step back, and notify the instructor.
    Explanation
    If the blade breaks while using the bandsaw, it is important to prioritize safety. Turning off the saw and stepping back will prevent any further accidents or injuries. Notifying the instructor is necessary as they will be able to assess the situation, provide guidance, and ensure that the bandsaw is repaired or replaced. Yelling for the instructor or walking away without informing anyone may delay necessary actions and compromise the safety of others. Getting the fire extinguisher is not relevant in this scenario as there is no indication of a fire.

  • 4. 

    How close should the guard be adjusted to the piece you are about to cut?

    • A.

      1/2 inch

    • B.

      1/4 inch

    • C.

      1 inch

    • D.

      3/4 inch

    Correct Answer
    B. 1/4 inch
    Explanation
    The guard should be adjusted to be 1/4 inch close to the piece you are about to cut. This distance ensures that the guard provides adequate protection by preventing any potential contact between the cutting tool and the piece being cut. Being too far away could increase the risk of accidents, while being too close could interfere with the cutting process. Therefore, adjusting the guard to be 1/4 inch close is the most appropriate option.

    What is the closest your fingers should be to the blade?

    • A.

      1 inch

    • B.

      2 inches

    • C.

      3 inches

    • D.

      4 inches

    Correct Answer
    D. 4 inches
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 4 inches because it is important to maintain a safe distance between your fingers and the blade when working with sharp tools or machinery. This distance allows for better control and reduces the risk of accidental injury. Being too close to the blade increases the chances of getting cut or injured, so it is crucial to keep a safe distance of 4 inches.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    It is not safe to make adjustments to a saw while it is plugged in and turned on. This can pose a serious risk of injury or electrocution. It is always recommended to unplug the saw and ensure that it is turned off before making any adjustments or maintenance.

    Safety glasses are not required when using the bandsaw.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Safety glasses are required when using the bandsaw because it is a power tool that poses potential risks to the eyes. The bandsaw has a sharp blade that moves at high speeds, and there is a possibility of wood chips or debris flying towards the user's face. Wearing safety glasses can protect the eyes from any potential hazards or injuries. Therefore, the statement "Safety glasses are not required when using the bandsaw" is false.

    If your wood does not cut easily, you should?

    • A.

      Speed up the blade

    • B.

      Push harder

    • C.

      Replace the blade

    • D.

      Turn off the machine and tell the teacher

    Correct Answer
    D. Turn off the machine and tell the teacher
    Explanation
    If your wood does not cut easily, turning off the machine and telling the teacher is the correct answer. This is because if the wood is not cutting easily, it may indicate a problem with the machine or the blade. Continuing to use the machine or pushing harder could potentially cause damage or injury. It is important to turn off the machine to avoid any accidents and inform the teacher so that they can address the issue and ensure the safety of everyone involved.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to never remove scraps when the blade is running because it can be extremely dangerous. The blade is sharp and can cause serious injuries if it comes into contact with the hands or body. Therefore, it is best to wait until the blade has completely stopped before removing any scraps to ensure safety.

    When using the bandsaw it is ok to have another student in the machine operator only area. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Having another student in the machine operator only area when using the bandsaw is not okay. This is because the machine operator only area is designated for the person operating the bandsaw, and having another student in that area can pose a safety risk. It is important to follow safety protocols and ensure that only authorized individuals are present in the machine operator only area to prevent accidents and injuries.
