It's pretty basic. Not even arguable, basic common sense. If you want to be protected with flesh sensing technology, you buy a SawStop. If you can't afford, or are not interested in that technology, you buy a standard saw that has been used for decades, and assume the risk.
I've been a cabinetmaker all of my working life, 35 + years, I cut my thumb on my PM 66 about 12 years ago, doing a bunch of repetative cuts. This was due to being inattentive and probably overconfident from using the saw for years. Was this the table saw manufacturer's fault? If you would answer yes to this, you are a very stupid human being and not worthy of breathing the air I do. I was using the saw, I put my thumb in harms way, I got it stiched up, and life went on.
No person or entity on earth should compensate me for my stupidity.
This lawsuit proves beyond any doubt that TORT Reform needs to be addressed and juries need to take a common sense or stupidity test before being allowed to take part in a courtroom proceeding. "My two cents"
I can just imagine the amount of hours you have in this turning. Great combination of species and form. Great Job!
