Retired woodworking machine tool designer and active woodworker
I am retired professional engineer who has worked over thirty years for a major power tool company. I have been a dedicated woodworker since my retirement. I spent several years acting as an expert witness in power tool litigation in the courts of many states and consider myself qualified to say that the court has no right to punish the power tool company and industry for stupid and negligent use of a power tool. Power tools are just what the words imply. The user must be aware that all types of power tools are inherently capable of causing injury. They are only dangerous to the uninformed, inexperienced or reckless operator who has not been informed of the proper use or disregards the safety procedures associated with the tool.
