    True or False.   Hold the stock FIRMLY down on the table AND against the fence as you are cutting.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    To ensure a safe and accurate cut, it is important to hold the stock firmly down on the table and against the fence. This helps to prevent any movement or slipping of the stock during the cutting process, which could lead to inaccurate cuts or potential accidents. By firmly holding the stock in place, the user maintains control over the stock and reduces the risk of injury.

    A kickback usually occurs when someone tries to cut cylindrical (round) stock.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A kickback usually occurs when someone tries to cut cylindrical (round) stock because the round shape of the stock can cause it to roll or spin during the cutting process. This can lead to the stock being thrown back towards the person operating the cutting tool, causing injury or damage. Therefore, it is important to take precautions and secure the round stock properly to prevent kickbacks.

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    A kickback can easily occur if the operator is not holding the stock firmly against the fence and table.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    If the operator is not holding the stock firmly against the fence and table, there is a higher chance of a kickback occurring. A kickback is a dangerous situation where the stock being cut is forcefully thrown back towards the operator. By not holding the stock firmly, it is more likely to move or shift during the cutting process, increasing the risk of a kickback. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    The best way to cut accurately is to place the blade against the stock and then turn the switch on.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that the best way to cut accurately is to place the blade against the stock and then turn the switch on. However, this is incorrect. The best way to cut accurately is to first align the blade with the desired cutting line on the stock, and then turn the switch on. By aligning the blade before turning on the switch, you ensure that the cut will be precise and accurate.

    The miter saw is the one machine that you do not need to wear safety glasses while using.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because safety glasses are necessary while using a miter saw. A miter saw is a power tool that can create flying debris, such as wood chips or sawdust, which can potentially cause eye injuries. Wearing safety glasses helps protect the eyes from any potential hazards and ensures the user's safety while operating the machine.
