Timber saws

*This induction is for FAB9 members only

At FAB9, safety is the most important thing to us - for you, your fellow makers, and our staff. We’ve designed a series of safety inductions that will show you the safe and effective way to work with specific machines and tools in the makerspace.


FAB9 Timber shop machine safety induction - Saws,
is essential for all new FAB9 members to complete before gaining access to FAB9’s mitre saw, table saw, band saw, and scroll saw.

In this 2 hour session, you’ll be introduced to FAB9’s power saws, profiling the mitre saw, table saw, band saw, and scroll saw. The session will teach you the safe, FAB9 way to work with each of these machines, while operating safely within the Timber shop.


While learning about the saws, you’ll be shown:

  • what they are
  • how they work
  • how to set them up
  • how to operate them
  • what size materials they can process
  • what additional accessories can help you to use them safely and effectively

Once you’ve completed this safety induction, you’ll gain access to FAB9's Timber shop and be able to start using the mitre saw, table saw, band saw, and scroll saw.
