    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    A board must be ____________ inches in length to be cut on the jointer.

    • A.

      4

    • B.

      6

    • C.

      8

    • D.

      12

    Correct Answer
    C. 8
    Explanation
    To be cut on the jointer, a board must be 8 inches in length. This is because the jointer is a tool used to create a flat and straight surface on the face or edge of a board. It is typically used for boards that are too wide to be planed by a thickness planer. A board shorter than 8 inches may not be suitable for using the jointer effectively, as it may not provide enough surface area for the tool to work properly.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The left hand should hold the board firmly against the _______.

    • A.

      Table

    • B.

      Fence

    • C.

      Guard

    Correct Answer
    B. Fence
    Explanation
    The left hand should hold the board firmly against the fence. This suggests that the board is being used in a woodworking or construction context, where it is important to secure the board against a stationary object to ensure accuracy and safety. Holding it against the table or guard would not provide the necessary stability, whereas the fence is designed specifically for this purpose.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The right hand should hold the board firmly DOWN against the _______ table to start.

    • A.

      Infeed table

    • B.

      Outfeed table

    • C.

      Guard

    • D.

      Fence

    Correct Answer
    A. Infeed table
    Explanation
    The right hand should hold the board firmly DOWN against the infeed table to start. The infeed table is the surface of the table saw where the wood is initially fed into the blade. Holding the board down against the infeed table ensures stability and control during the cutting process, reducing the risk of kickback or other accidents.

      Long pieces

    • D.

      Wooden stock

    Correct Answer
    A. End grain
    Explanation
    When working with wood, it is important to never cut short pieces or end grain. End grain refers to the exposed ends of wood where the growth rings are visible. Cutting through end grain can cause the wood to splinter and weaken, resulting in an uneven and unstable piece. It is recommended to cut wood along the grain or use techniques such as crosscutting or ripping to avoid damaging the end grain.

    D. Behind
    Explanation
    It is important to never allow someone to stand behind the machine while it is in operation because there is a risk of injury. Standing behind the machine can put the person in the path of any moving parts or projectiles that may be ejected from the machine. Therefore, it is crucial to ensure that no one stands behind the machine to maintain a safe working environment.

    Overreaching refers to exceeding one's limits or going beyond what is reasonable or appropriate. In the context of the question, the phrase "Stay on balance" suggests the importance of maintaining a stable and controlled state. Therefore, the correct answer "overreach" aligns with the idea of not going too far or pushing oneself too hard, but rather staying within reasonable boundaries and avoiding excessive or unnecessary actions.
