Reno, NV, US
Hope I have the right area to post this. Just read the article on the outcome of the "Saw Stop" suit. In my humble opinion is that "JUST WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH OUR COURT SYSTEM?" (sorry for yelling but I am so pi--ed right now I could spit. First, shame on this guy's employer for not training him in the proper use of a table saw. Secondly, shame on the employer for not properly supervising this person. Thirdly, shame on the courts for even letting this case come to trial for the stupidity on this person to try to rip a board without using the fence. I have been woodworking since 1950, when I learned a valuable lesson from my father. I was helping him cut about 500 pieces for a project on our old 10" Delta. Well needless to say he lost his concentration and cut the end of his right thumb off. He told me as he was looking for his severed thumb, never take your eyes away from the saw. I still have all 10 digits. Sorry but I'm still pi--ed at the outcome. One old safe woodworker.
