5) THE MINER wants to know:

True or False
False
Kickback happens when the saw binds between the two pieces not allowing it to pass completely through. You should always have one of the pieces free to fall downward on the opposite side you are cutting. Saw horses would be a good solution

Great job Jacob!!!

Your first win was March 7th.
Wat did you pick for the prize.

I chose a custom video for REA’s. I also won 2-3 weeks ago and I chose the inspector discount. Still waiting on emails.

Congrats Jacob! :wink:

Way to go Jacob. Good job on those questions.

I’m waiting on my videos as well from a couple months ago.
In the meantime I filmed a custom video at my house. We’ll see which one gets finished first. Internachi or my video made from scratch.
