You can't cut small pieces or tapers as safely as you can with a power bench.

After watching the video on table saw saftey, my reaction is "thanks Dino for EZ".

That was propaganda to cut your hands.
we all know that no piece of wood is perfectly straight.
wood is alive and reacts.

never use a tablesaw to do this and that is better than
never cut a wood that is not perfectly straight.

relying on aftermarket jigs to do a safer cut?
why not design build-in jigs instead of a room full of aftermarket jigs.

No one left to blame?
The entire video was unbelievable.
designed for the courts. ( 9% amputations)

Here is the question.
how big is the tablesaw market and how much is wasted on accidents and amputations?
simple math is not enough to make smarter tablesaws?

And If they do, they become liable for all old saws in the market?
Looks like they're stuck delivering a faulty product.

Was it my imagination or did the operator's left hand have a partial amputation?

funny how they try to compare a tool with a race car accident.

the race car driver is highly trained but the tablesaws are

driven without a licence.

Yes, life is dangerous. accidents happen every day.

but this tool is the cause of more accidents and amputations

VS all wars combined.

This is why the ATI produced the video.

as a reminder that life is dangerous and any accident is simply fact of life instead of bad designed tool.


Instead adapting to nes tech and trends they keep pushing the

blame to the innocent users.

An old friend stopped over the ez shop today
with 2-1/2 fingers missing. :mad:

My reactions were:
"LOL the offcut bumped the blade on the FIRST cut! 50/50 that would have been a missile!"
"oh please don't try that, better hold on to that miter guage!"
"really, you have to reach over the blade every time?"
"how is standing and pushing like that ergonomic?"
"you are going to stack offcuts together right beside the spinning blade? Bump the table saw and one of them catches a tooth, goes flying!"

Bob, I agree. I am very thankful for track saws and all of my fingers and no scars. I like offcuts to stay out of the air.

I particularly like how they suggest that UL testing makes a tool safe...
