    A sharp chisel is safer to use than a blunt chisel.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Using a sharp chisel is safer than using a blunt chisel because a sharp chisel requires less force to cut through materials, reducing the risk of slipping and injuring oneself. Additionally, a sharp chisel provides cleaner and more precise cuts, which can help prevent accidents and mistakes while working.

  • 5. 

    Hold your work firmly in your hand when using a chisel.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    It is important to hold the workpiece securely when using a chisel, but holding the chisel itself firmly in your hand can lead to less control and precision while working. Instead, it is recommended to hold the chisel with a loose grip to allow for better maneuverability and accuracy. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    A screwdriver is primarily used for turning screws and tightening or loosening them. It is not designed or suitable for tasks like chiseling, hammering, or levering. These tasks require different tools such as a chisel, hammer, or pry bar. Therefore, the statement that a screwdriver can be used for these tasks is false.

    A clamp can be used to secure your work when planing, sanding or filing to avoid any dangerous slipping.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A clamp is a tool that can hold objects firmly in place. When planing, sanding, or filing, there is a risk of the workpiece slipping, which can be dangerous. By using a clamp, you can secure the workpiece and prevent any accidental movement, ensuring a safer work environment.

  • 10. 

    Hacksaw blades can break because of excessive speed and force.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Hacksaw blades can break due to excessive speed and force because when the blade is used at a high speed or with too much force, it can cause the metal to overheat and become brittle, leading to breakage. Additionally, applying excessive force can cause the blade to bend or warp, making it more prone to breaking. Therefore, it is important to use hacksaw blades at the appropriate speed and force to prevent breakage and ensure safe and effective cutting.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is important to always stop and turn off a machine before making adjustments for safety reasons. This ensures that the machine is not running and reduces the risk of accidents or injuries that could occur if adjustments were made while the machine is still running. By stopping and turning off the machine, it allows for a safer working environment and minimizes the potential for any harm.

    Any cutting tool should be _______ to avoid excessive force being used in their operation.

    Correct Answer
    sharp
    Explanation
    A cutting tool should be sharp to avoid excessive force being used in its operation. When a tool is sharp, it can easily penetrate and cut through materials with minimal effort. This reduces the need for applying excessive force, which can lead to accidents or damage to the tool or the material being cut. A sharp cutting tool also ensures clean and precise cuts, improving efficiency and reducing the likelihood of errors.

    Use a _________________ to help secure materials and reduce the chance of slipping when cutting materials.

    Correct Answer
    clamp
    vice
    Explanation
    A clamp or vice is used to secure materials in place, preventing them from slipping when cutting. This ensures that the materials remain stable and allows for more accurate and controlled cuts. Both clamps and vices provide a strong grip, but they differ in their design and usage. Clamps are typically used for lighter materials and have adjustable jaws, while vices are heavier and have fixed jaws. Overall, using a clamp or vice helps to enhance safety and precision when cutting materials.
