I use the saws top daily and it is a quality saw and well worth the money for its safety feature. We do use the feeders in part of our shop but not every cut can be made with a feeder and certain instances require you to remove the guard like the dato blade etc.

Saws stop...........................$3000*
New blade and cartridge.............$160*
Going home with all your fingers....priceless**

There are some things money can buy fingers and thumbs are not one of them....

*Price of saw may be more or less then $3000 I really have no idea. Also blade and cartridge man be more or less
**fingers are priceless
and the blonde said "RECTUM, Hell damn near killed em!!"

I think it is worth every penny...why? because you at least stand a chance to save your priceless fingers than not having one at all.

i would think that every saw comes with a finger guard of some configuration when it enters a company; and in the manual it tells you not to remove guard under any circumstances.

i also think that if a guard is removed the liabilty is not on the manufacturer but on the user.

let's say an osha inspector walks thru a plant and sees an unguarded saw. he tells you to guard it!

don't you want to visually see saw blade protection instead of some unvisible electronic device that someone can fool with and you would not know it.

This could be fun to do at IRCHA Friday night! We can start a paypal account to take donations and when we hit our goal....we make the cut!

In the spirit of the discussion, we should probably use a table saw....for legal reasons - YOU would have to do the cutting....

Hmmmmm....

I have an old 10 inch table saw that spins forever after you turn it off. I always use a long piece of scrap on the side of the blade to bring it to a stop. Reason ? One day I almost touched the blade while it was spinning down due to the strobe effect of the overhead florescent lights, it looked like it was stopped.
OSHA would go nuts in my home shop.

How about droping a hot dog, or droping a steak, onto that blade? Would the Tbone launch across the barn?The ignored one

I have a hunch that the hotdog somehow needs to be grounded to the floor or the tablesaw to make it work. If it makes contact while airborne, I don't think it will shut down.

If it requires gounding, it will not work reliably. It appears to store static charge and releases some of that charge when a conducting medium is introduced.

By the same token, someone wearing rubber glove should be protected once the blade goes through the glove and touch the salty skin.

Some folks just finish the cut and crank the blade below the table surface to spin down safely. My own table saw has an add-on brake system so the blade stops pretty quick after shutdown.

it wont work as he had to dip his finger in cold water first.
I'm a tradie and i noticed the wetting of the finger too...how many tradesmen you know with moist fingers, my fingers are always dry from the dust and shavings on a jobsite. Occasionally i wear gloves for certain things, how's that going to work?

Here's my honest opinion, most wont like it, but its true...if you buy any tablesaw, you should treat it with respect, its a machine which is a timesaver as well as EXTREMELY DANGEROUS and if you dont know how to use it, then dont buy it.
The main problem causing these accidents on tablesaws is that people dont set them up properly, there is a bladeguard and it should be adjusted about 2-5mm more than the thickness of timber you are cutting to allow the process to be smooth, and at 2-5mm your fingers aint going to get near the blade. But alas people just set it up at any old setting and cut away with ignorance.

There was a jist on that comment given the spirit of how the thread was going.

Chances are wetting his finger in cold ice water first was for numbing effect, just in case.

There is a reason why demo does not cut the steak over the board on a sawstop at normal pace. If they did, it would demostrate that it will save some fingers but not all.

Nice jig. Every woodshop class setting should consider one. Would give the teacher some peace of mind.

Indeed seems like using gloves is a no go.

one thing will always remain a certainty - you can't protect the stupid against themselves.

If you treat the table saw as if it could kill you then you'll always be careful around it. The moment you start treating it casually is the moment it will bite you. Complacency kills (or severely injures you in this case).
Stupidity can be cured. Ignorance is for life!
