Tool Rentals: Table Saw Safety

Table Saw

While carpentry is a satisfying and useful hobby, it can be risky if you don’t adhere to safety standards and use precaution while using your carpentry tools. This is especially true with table saws. Table saws are incredibly handy, but you can seriously injure yourself if you aren’t careful. Here’s what you need to know about table saw safety:

Place an outfeed table behind the saw as an added safety measure. As you feed your material through the table saw, the material will land on the outfeed table, which will prevent you from reaching behind the saw to grab your material before it falls to the floor. Table saw accidents commonly occur when the user puts his or her hand behind the saw in order to keep the material from falling. This can result in a very serious injury.

Be careful where you stand while using the saw. There always a risk of the saw kicking the material back at you, so be sure to stand to the side of the saw, not directly in front of it.

Use push sticks and push pads when you operate your table saw. If you’re planning to cut material that is less than three inches in width or length, use a push stick in order to propel the material through the saw.

Wear proper clothing and safety accessories. Wear either a short-sleeved shirt or make sure your sleeves are rolled up tightly—you want to avoid getting your sleeve caught in the table saw. Do not wear jewelry while operating the table saw. Additionally, wear safety goggles and ear protectors while you’re running the table saw in order to protect your sight and hearing.

Always keep the safety guard in place on your table saw. This is perhaps the most important table saw safety precaution.

Equipment Rental Options That Will Make Your Next Painting Project a Breeze

Scraper removing wallpaper

There’s nothing more satisfying than completing DIY home projects, especially big tasks that dramatically transform your home—like painting! Though you may have the motivation to do a great painting job, you may not have all the rental equipment you need. Here at A Tool Shed Rentals, we have everything you’ll need to make your painting project a breeze, such as:

Wallpaper Steamer: If you have wallpaper to get rid of, you certainly have your work cut out for you! Luckily, you can rent a wallpaper steamer from A Tool Shed to make the job fly by. Using a wallpaper steamer is a safe, chemical-free way to take down wallpaper. This piece of rental equipment is even powerful enough to remove multiple layers of wallpaper and wallpaper that's been painted over. A wallpaper steamer is the perfect example of equipment that should be rented instead of bought outright; after all, though it’s extremely useful, it’s unlikely that you will need to use a steamer often enough to purchase one.

Ladder: A ladder is an essential piece of equipment that you’re sure to have around the house, but you may need a taller or extendable ladder to reach every corner when painting. If you only have a small folding ladder, you’ll definitely need a taller, sturdier ladder for your painting project. At A Tool Shed, we offer a wide range of ladders, from regular 6-foot and 8-foot stepladders to 24-, 26-, 32-, and 40-foot extension ladders.

Electric Paint Sprayer: For a professional look you can get in a short time, you can’t go wrong with an electric airless paint sprayer. Our model sprays a half a gallon of latex paint per minute and comes with a 50-foot hose.

At A Tool Shed Rentals, you can rent tools for hours, days, weeks, and even a month! Come into one of our six convenient locations throughout northern California or contact us at (831) 359-4769, and we’ll be more than happy to help you out.
