When are people going to start taking responsibility for their own actions. What are we teaching the younger generation? This judge/jury need to wake up and get with reality. The man that went after the compaany for his mistake should be ashamed. Every time someone sues a company, municipality, etc. for something they did, the insurance companies jack our rates up. Being lititgation crazed is very bad for or society on many levels. A coworker recently severed several of his fingers on a table saw cutting oak flooring. He did not have the guard down, the board kicked and got four fingers. He's 26 years old. He did however man up and admit he was the cause of the mishap, and won't be going after the manufacturer.
when I'm done using the shop I make sure tools are unplugged( habit from when my kids were small). I also regularly pull stuff away from walls and clean up the dust. I don't store any solvents in my shop either. Cleaning dust from inside machines was recommended to me after I had my dust collection machine repaired.
