safety device

Did you ever have to stop your bandsaw to pull a small piece of wood out of the throat? Here's something that you can make in 10 minutes out of a scrap piece of oak that may save you a finger or two, besides eliminating that shutoff. No gluing is necessary, just cut it out of one piece of wood.

I made a zero-clearance insert for my bandsaw. Prevents anything but dust/curlies from getting through the table. When I need to move something away from the area near the blade, any old semi-pointy stick works fine.
I do like the idea of bandsawing large forceps, though. You might send that in to one of the magazines, and see if they'll send you some cash for the tip. Andy

I wish I coud get a zero clearance insert to work for me. When I'm cutting small shapes with tight curves, a small but solid wedge-shaped piece always manages to jam into the side of the blade, almost stopping it. Ed
