Do you remember the old Steve Martin movie "Dirty, Rotten Scoundrels"? In the movie a cork was put on the end of Steve Martins fork to keep him from injuring himself while he was eating. Is that the next piece of stupid trash that will be proposed?

I am a 73year old with a woodworking hobby and I still have all my fingers. There are very few advantages to being my age, however, one of them is that I am sure my trusty cabinet saw will outlive me and I will not be forced to put up with the BS of SS.

Come on folks - if you want a saw stop, then by all means buy one, but we should not be faced to spend many hundreds of dollars on a product we don't want. Just another bureaucratic fix for a non-existant non-problem.
If Mr. Osorio was uneducated in the proper use of the tool then he should pay the price for his loss, the rest of the world should not be penalized for his negligence. I think the Jury was stupid to award any amount, and I guess you just can not fix stupid.
