So if I need some cash, all I need to do is go out in my shop and find a sharp object that is not protected by a manufactures guard. What if i'm to stupid to put the guard back on after I use it. (sounds like a problem for my lawyer). People use the since God gave you. If you do not have any, stick to building things with Legos. WARNING Legos are small and can be a chocking hazard, so do not put them in your mouth.
I'm glad to read all of the sincable comments on this blog. It just reinforces what I already know. My follow woodworkers are down to earth adults who take credit for what they do well and take responsibility for their own mistakes. It's unfortunate that we still have that 1% that will cast a dark shadow on the rest of us.
If Mr. Osorio was planning on being less safe, he probably should have probably purchased the SawStop in the first place, it's obvious he knew about the technology. Anyone who is serious about woodworking knows the dangers associated with it. Just because someone does not either exercise safety or purchase a safer tool, is a choice, not the responsibility of the tool manufacture. Legislation like this is what makes things so expensive, and we all know how expensive it already is. I hope others do not follow this guys lead, we can't afford for the industry to "idiot" proof all of out tools.
Like many of the other postings, I look toward FWW for articles on advanced techniques and "out of the box thinking", let the lesser magazines do the tool reviews. If you feel you need to do the reviews, do compairatives on the larger tools that many of us put months and sometimes years of research into, because we only have that kind of money to spend once and can't afford to make a bad purchase. I also like the reviews on expendables that make out projects from good to great. Who wants to purchase 15 different quarts of top coat.
