  • Turn off saw immediately after making cut and use
    the brake to stop the blade

Power Miter Saw

  • Be sure the blade guards are in place and working
  • Be sure the saw has attained maximum speed before
    starting the cut
  • Hold the material firmly against the fence while
    making the cut

Power Table Saw
  • Do not stand directly in line with the blade
  • Make sure that the blade does not project more
    than 1/8 inch above the stock being cut
  • Never reach across the saw blade
  • Use a push stick for ripping less than 4 wide

  • Do not rip without a rip fence, or cross cut with
    out a miter gauge

Mark Roesler EDHD 5007 Power point as a software
tool naturally lends itself very well for
presentations to students. I would have major
topics in a presentation format to use as an
addition to lecture. The presentations would also
be useful to put on a web site for viewing if a
students would want to review the information or
a student was absent the day of the presentation.
Power point would also be useful to present
information for parents through an automatic
presentation during a parents night or put up as
a web site. The presentation could also be used
to promote your class to other students and
administration. In technology education we need
to purchase equipment and supplies. As a teacher
you could present to administration your vision
for your program and when you would need to
purchase equipment and why. This software is
very universal and used in many businesses. I
think teaching the use of power point is
beneficial for every student. Even if the
students never used the program again it has
similarities with other software programs. The
use of importing sound, movies, clip art,
pictures are a part of most programs and follow
the same process.
