Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

I'm all for safety and protection of the worker. I even think many suits against manufacturers have merit and don't exist just to make lawyers rich. But I think the plaintiff should have sued God for not supplying a brain with this hands. The "flesh detecting" technology is fairly new. So did the plaintiff assume the saw he was working with had such technology? Dis he read the instructions that came with the saw? Had he any training in safely using power tools? The world has gone mad!

Re: Cast Your Vote for the Most Scraptacular Project

None of my favorites made your final cut. I emphasize, I didn't enter this contest, so no ax to grind. But I don't know how one can make full sized pieces of furniture from scrap.

Found wood or scavenged wood or free windfall materials might make kitchen cabinets, coffee tables or bed stands but that certainly doesn't meet my concept of scrap. And I think a number of entrants got skunked.
