Kudzu nice idea
It's funny how Necessity is the Mother of Invention, eh? Just an observation...have you been sawing away at the bottom of the clamp pad? Something blackis hangin' off the bottom. You might want to use a different holding method or slide the clamp up and back. Nate 1789 had a metal clamp fall into the blade on his Saw Stop and it stopped!
I calculated the launch speed of a 10" saw blade at 4000 rpm to be about 118 mph! So use extreme caution there, guy.
A table saw blade at 4000 or so RPM with a 10" blade has a peripheral speed
of 4000 x pi D or 125,600 in per min divided by 12 equals 10,466 ft per min. divided 5280 equals miles per min. times 60 equals 118.93 MPH. FYI
The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
