Re: CPSC Drafting New Tablesaw Regulations

I bought a SawStop two years ago and I think it is a fine machine. My thinking is, buy a SawStop or do not own a table saw. If you can not pony up the cash to buy one, or it you are to mocho to have good sense, forget the tablesaw and by some really good hand saws. I would recomend Bad ax, or L-N. And, there are several other excelent brand saws too.

Re: Router Injury Sparks Reflection on Safety

Yes, I too have done dumb thing in the shop. I too have made the same error with a router. And, I predict that despite my best efforts, I will make future errors. And, I may get hurt. Nevertheless, I try very hard to be as safe as possible despite the reality that I am a natural born clutz. Thus, I try to do everything possible to avoid serious accidents. Every week that goes buy I notice myself using more hand tools and fewer power tools. I also bit the bullet and bought a SawStop machine. Yes, I spent some money. But, I still have all my fingers. And, if and when similar technology is avalible on other power tools, I will buy them too. My personal goal is to get to the point that I do everything except rough lumber jointing, plaining and brake down with hand tools. Even then, I have been know to cut myself with a chisel. So, I think it is prudent to be as careful as posible but by all means keep working wood.
