The other day I was going to rip a piece of 1 1/4 maple to use as a jewelry box lid. It was too high to fit my band saw so I raised the blade on my table saw, set the guard for center of the board inserted my ear plugs and my goggles. I ran the piece though the saw on all 4 sides to cut as much as I could. Then removed it and placed it in my vice. I then hand sawed it through the middle until I had two pieces. I then turned around and noticed my table saw was still running with the blade all the way up.
I could not hear it with the ear plugs in. Scared me a little bit.
I may just use my shooting ear muffs as some one else said .
When the enemy is in range, so are you.
