Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

What's next? Someone bringing a lawsuit against the tool manufacturers because the sawdust in the shop from the power tools is a carcinogen for certain types of wood? Let's see, pretty soon we'll have a bunch of tools in the shop that can't cut your fingers off, can't put any sawdust into the air, can't damage your hearing for putting out too many decibels, can't throw any chips in case you are too stupid to wear eye protection, and, oh yeah, can't cut wood. The choice I make about the tools I buy is mine, not the government's. The safety precautions I choose to take are mine, not dictated by some lawyer. From all the posts below, I can see that all of us woodworkers are passionate about what we do as a hobby. It's pretty obvious that there wasn't any clear-headed woodworkers on that jury. I hope the story comes out just as loudly when the appeal happens and the case gets thrown out.
