Re: Miracle Shield Blocks Kickback

Way back in my younger days I worked in a formica shop. The owner had a brother that was by far not the sharpest tool in the shop. Any time he would use the table saw, he would ware an apron that he made out of plywood, this of course was after he got hit in the gut by a cut off. I wonder if he is one of the inventors!
Thanks for the laugh,

Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

This is a difficult subject....
I have been on the wrong side of a saw blade, once the table saw, and once the circular saw. The circular saw almost took my life. I thank modern medicine for putting me back together almost 100%. I am not too sure how one can blame a stationary tool for cutting his fingers off. I use one of these "table top" saws on the job site at least three times a week. This man was installing hardwood flooring. I have seen installers make rips in 2-1/4" oak and not even use a fence, let alone a guard (I know all saws today come with fences and blade guards). I have seen them use the same saw for making cross cuts without a miter gauge. When a tool is used carelessly it will bite you, your luck dictates how big a chunk that bite will remove. I have yet to see any table saw that could not rip a piece of 3/4" flooring.

Jamie please do not take offence but I blame the lawyers for these types of lawsuits I know those of you that read "knots" have read my response to a post yesterday, but I am going to say it again. Many years go I was watching Sixty Minutes, A man was working on a farm, and he set his extension ladder up on a pile of frozen manure. When the sun came up over the barn the manure got soft, the ladder kicked out and he fell breaking his leg. He sued the ladder company and of course he won. I don’t have any new ladders right now but I guess they come with frozen manure warnings. I am sure everyone out there has heard of lawsuits like that, the lady that spilled the hot McDonalds coffee in her lap is one I am sure we all know.... It goes on and on and on.
All this said I do wish Mr. Orsorio the best.
