    Correct Answer(s)
    B. Down
    C. Teeth
    Explanation
    When installing a blade, it is important to ensure that the teeth are pointing downwards. This is because the teeth of the blade are designed to cut through the material being worked on in a specific direction. By pointing the teeth downwards, the blade will be able to effectively cut through the material and achieve the desired result. Installing the blade with the teeth pointing in any other direction may result in ineffective cutting or even damage to the blade or the material being worked on.

    Explanation
    When using a blade to cut wood, it is important to slow down and release pressure at the point where the blade is about to cut completely through the wood. This is because if there is too much pressure on the board, there is a risk of the hand slipping and going into the blade. By slowing down and releasing pressure, the risk of accidents can be minimized, ensuring safety while cutting wood.

    T or F  Never change the blade on the machine.  Always get the instructor to do this.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is false that one should never change the blade on the machine and always rely on the instructor to do so. This statement is incorrect because it is important for individuals to learn how to change the blade on the machine themselves. By doing so, they can ensure that the blade is properly maintained and replaced when necessary. Relying solely on the instructor for this task may create delays and hinder productivity.

    Rate this question:

  • 10.

    • D.

      Stop the machine and then change the blade

    Correct Answer
    D. Stop the machine and then change the blade
    Explanation
    When a blade breaks, it is important to stop the machine first to prevent any further damage or injury. Continuing to use the machine with a broken blade can lead to accidents or damage to the workpiece. Once the machine is stopped, the blade can be safely changed to ensure smooth and safe operation.

  • 11. 

    Little pieces that are cut off shoild always be

    • A.

      Thrown into the trash can immediately

    • B.

      Tossed to the floor and picked up later

    • C.

      Ignored

    • D.

      Left on the table

    Correct Answer
    A. Thrown into the trash can immediately
    Explanation
    Little pieces that are cut off should always be thrown into the trash can immediately to ensure cleanliness and prevent any potential hazards. Leaving them on the table or tossing them to the floor and picking them up later can create a mess and increase the risk of accidents or injuries. Ignoring them is not a responsible option as it can lead to further clutter and potential hygiene issues. Therefore, throwing them into the trash can immediately is the most appropriate and sensible choice.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    Students should always follow the ____________ part of the cut line on the piece they are cutting.  The cut line is the line you draw on the boaed to follow while you are cutting

    • A.

      Inside

    • B.

      Middle

    • C.

      Outside

    • D.

      Does not matter, you can always sand it down later.

    Correct Answer
    C. Outside
    Explanation
    When cutting a piece, it is important for students to follow the outside part of the cut line. This means that they should cut just outside the line they have drawn on the board. By doing so, they ensure that they are not cutting into the actual piece that they want to keep. If they were to cut on the inside or middle of the cut line, they would risk cutting into the piece and potentially ruining it. The suggestion to sand it down later implies that cutting on the outside allows for some margin of error, which can be corrected during the sanding process.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    T or F Tension Lever (or tension knob)  should be set to highest tension before changing blade.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Setting the tension lever or knob to the highest tension before changing the blade is not necessary. The tension lever or knob should be adjusted based on the specific requirements of the blade being used and the material being cut. Setting it to the highest tension may cause unnecessary strain on the blade and could potentially lead to damage or breakage. Therefore, the correct answer is false.
