So, I have a saw very much like this and tore into two fingers last fall. One is now shorter than it should be and the feeling is just now returning to the tips. My thoughts as one who has been bitten:
1. Sharp, spinning things must be respected at all times
2. Mistakes happen and with table saws, mistakes happen FAST
3. A SawStop would have prevented an ER visit and much pain
4. I would have (and would still) retrofit my saw with this technology
5. How can Ryobi be responsible for operator error? Rather like blaming Ford for an accident caused by falling asleep.
My doc said "get a SawStop" and it IS amazing technology but the price is way outside my budget.
