Re: New Tool News from the International Woodworking Fair

What was your impression of the Saw Stop slider? 1K seems like a very premium price point, does it live up to that?

Re: Shop Talk Live 8: Just a Splash of Water

Video was the key to this and now its gone, not a great move.
Maybe you should get away from the "live" aspect and just do a weekly or biweekly video release of the show, I could never make the live stream, but I was sure to come back and watch it a few days later. Sorry, this has to be a big thumbs down for me.

Re: Behold, the Speed Tenon

This is a great technique, I use it quite often. As for the safety aspect I think that is up to the individual and their
experience, as well as, comfort level they have with their machinery. If you have taken the time to learn how to operate your machinery properly then "you" will know what it is capable of doing.
Thanks for sharing and I know I would not have a problem with seeing this in your pages, but I am not the "safety police" either ; )

Re: SawStop inventor Steve Gass defends the latest tablesaw verdicts

I think it's great to hear Mr. Gass weigh in and also to see
things from his perspective. Unfortunately though I am still having a problem with where the blame lies.
Flesh sensing technology, riving knives, guarding, anti-kick back pawl...and so on do not and will never excuse stupidity or a lack of training. Having respect and knowledge of the
equipment you use is paramount. As an employer you should
be training your employees on safety and proper use of tools
in the work place. Blaming the tools for cutting you is simply
a lazy and irresponsible act. Did the oven burn your cookies too? Osario might have had a better chance if was trained properly on how to use the tools provided and if they had their guarding still in place. They should have sued the company he works for and not the saw company. Just saying...

Re: Blade brake inventor aims to compete with SawStop

I saw this a few months ago and I like it better than the Saw Stop technology for all the reasons goodguy points out.
APO, your right on, the guard stops the blade and you touching the blade so counting how many teeth go by in an eighth of a
second is pretty irrelevant. I think in the end that none of
these technologies are an excuse for using tools responsibly
and properly or for training your employees to do so as well.
Take control of your equipment and use your noggin' and you
couldn't be safer.

Re: Winner Chosen for Tablesaw Safety Tip Challenge

The best safety tip I have come to recognize is not something you make, build or buy. It is the common sense reasoning when I use my saw. You know...that little voice or tingle in your brain that make you stop and think twice about what you are doing and whether or not it is safe. Experience, common sense, and knowing your tools limits are some of the best safety devices you own.

Re: UPDATED: Giveaway and Poll: The Most Requested Woodworking Gifts of 2009

Didn't get it, but still looking for my new cabinet saw...Honey!!! It was back ordered...that's it.
Hope everyone had a great holiday.

Re: Poll: Any Machinery on your Holiday Wish List?

Oops... I listed this in the PT section too, the more the better I guess.
I am still waiting on my new Saw Stop PCS... hint for Santa.
I could also use on of those 12" Jointer/Planer combos, maybe from Laguna, you just gotta dream.
Happy Hoolidays

Re: Poll: What power tools are on your holiday wish list?

I am really wanting to upgrade from my contractors saw to a really nice cabinet saw, the new PCS Sawstop is on that list.
A 12" Jointer/Planer combo machine is also on that list, LOL!
Happy Holidays

Re: Poll: What hand tools are on your holiday wish list?

I've been hankering for a adj. mouth low angle block, just like the LN. A low angle Jack would be pretty awesome as well.
So many tools so little time...
Happy Holidays to all
