KICKBACK. A term used to describe the reaction of a piece of material (usually wood) when being cut by a circular saw which is rotating in the opposite direction from the material as it is fed into the saw. Since the saw blade is rotating at a high rate of speed the force that can be exerted on the material is substantial and can cause serious injury to the operator.
