7 safety rules to never violate
Use pushsticks designed with plenty of surface area in contact with the workpiece; they hold the board down while keeping your hand several inches from the blade. A pushstick doesn't have to be pretty, complicated, or expensive -- the shop-made one shown consists of just scrap 2x4 with an MDF heel. Keep a pushstick at each tool station and always within easy reach.
