Did I read "Tansu"?
Why not articles on this furniture style?

Re: CPSC Drafting New Tablesaw Regulations

Why stop at table saws? The feds should require flesh sensing technology in firearms ammunition, automobile bumpers, etc.

Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

Absolutely ridiculous! Where was Mr. Osorio's built-in "Flesh Detecting Technology"? It's called opening your eyes, paying attention and most of all watching where you put your fingers.

Steve Gass thinks this verdict is some sort of vindication. If he were truly concerned with the safety of others he would have made his technology available to saw manufacturers. Instead he he tried to "extort" royalties and even tried to get a law passed to require his invention on all saws. Having failed in these "money grubbing" schemes he now markets his own saw at many times the cost.
