Never Use Just the Table Saw Fence to Crosscut Boards!
Why is it unsafe to only use the fence as a guide for making crosscuts on a table saw? Check out the video and description below, as Travis explains why.
Instead, clamp a block that’s exactly 1-in. thick behind the saw blade.
Set the fence to cut 1-in. longer than your desired final board length.
Now you can cut multiple boards exactly the same length without any fear of kickback injuries.
