When working with a table saw I remember one fomula. Saw blade size X 3.14 X table saw rmp X 60 divided by 12 divided by 5286 = the speed of the blade. It works out to between 102 mph for a cabinet saw to 110 mph for a portable saw. How careful was this guy around a blade travelling over 100 mph? I am sorry he had damage to his fingers, like cuttting them off which is a life altering event. Sorry about your fate, but did you think about the fact you can lose fingers in your chosen profession when you went to work that morning. If there was Darwin awards for guys like that I would be the first to nominate him.
