    • A.

    • B.

      Sharp

    • C.

      Maximum

    • D.

      Diameter

    Correct Answer
    B. Sharp
    Explanation
    To ensure safe and efficient cutting, it is important to have a sharp saw blade. A sharp blade will cut through the material smoothly and effectively, reducing the risk of accidents or mistakes. It is also important to have proper clearance, meaning that there is enough space between the blade and any obstructions to prevent binding or kickback. Additionally, the blade should be free from vibration, as excessive vibration can affect the quality of the cut and potentially lead to damage or injury. While using the same brand as the saw may be beneficial in terms of compatibility and performance, it is not explicitly mentioned in the question.

    Correct Answer
    D. Fence
    Explanation
    When working with tools such as a saw, it is important to ensure that your work is held firmly against a stable and secure surface. The fence is a component of a saw or other woodworking tools that helps to guide and hold the workpiece in place. By using the fence, you can maintain control over the workpiece and reduce the risk of it moving or slipping during the cutting process. This is crucial for accuracy and safety while working with tools.

    Correct Answer
    C. Do not cut it
    Explanation
    If the material is bowed, twisted, or warped, it is not advisable to cut it. Cutting such material may result in inaccurate or uneven cuts, which can affect the overall quality and functionality of the project. It is important to ensure that the material is flat and stable before attempting to cut it.

      Tighten

    • D.

      Turn

    Correct Answer
    B. Loosen
    Explanation
    Before making a cut, it is necessary to loosen the arm lock knob. This is because the arm lock knob holds the arm in place, and loosening it allows for the arm to be adjusted or moved to the desired position for the cut. If the arm lock knob is not loosened, the arm may remain fixed and prevent the necessary movement for the cut to be made effectively.

      Remove

    • C.

      Watch

    • D.

      Release

    Correct Answer
    D. Release
    Explanation
    When the saw is equipped with a brake, it is important to release the trigger switch before applying the brake. Releasing the trigger switch will deactivate the saw's motor, allowing the brake to engage and stop the saw's blade. This is a safety precaution to ensure that the saw stops running before attempting to apply the brake, reducing the risk of accidents or injury.

    • C.

      Turned off

    • D.

      Operating

    Correct Answer
    B. At a full stop
    Explanation
    Before reaching to pick up a piece of work or anything near the cutting path of the blade, it is important to ensure that the machine is at a full stop. This means that the machine should not be in motion and all moving parts should be completely halted. This is necessary to prevent any accidents or injuries that may occur if the machine is still operating or slowing down.

    • D.

      Halfway through the cutting operation

    Correct Answer
    A. Prior to the start of the operation
    Explanation
    The instructor must approve any cutting operation that requires a special set-up before it begins. This ensures that proper safety measures are in place and that the operation is being carried out correctly. Waiting until after the cut is made or halfway through the operation could lead to potential hazards or mistakes. Therefore, it is important to seek approval prior to starting the operation.
