Matthew, Not to detract from the beauty in the simplicity of this fence, it goes to show that an editor needs an editor. Norm, the godfather of woodworkers, was misaddressed. It's a common mistake to call him Abrams but his surname is Abram.
Great article on developing safety habits. I try to live by the mantra "The woodworker's mind must be the sharpest tool in the shop." I do woodworking for pleasure so if I'm not mindful of why I'm in the shop, I don't go into it in the first place.
Carlos Osorio CHOSE to purchase a saw without the technology or he CHOSE not to upgrade his saw to one with that technology. The CHOICE was his in either case.
He also lacked the shop awareness that is essential to safe woodworking. The mantra that needs to be observed always is this: "The woodworker's mind must be the sharpest tool in the shop."
A sickening liberal judgement that enables poor behavior with an award. Sad, sad, sad.
