Well I too don't use the safety equipment that came with my TS, but I was always told respect the tools your using, never leave the blade up on the TS when not in use, only raise the blade high enough to make the cut and use a push stick. I do use glasses mostly because I have worn them for 40 yrs and it makes it easier to see, Hearing protection a most since I lost 10% of it in the Marines although I never take my eyes off the blade intentionally, I'm liking the idea of nobody enters the shop if tools are running.
See always learning something new.
I may not use the regular safety equipmint but I wish I had enough to buy the Saw Stop when I was looking for a new cabinet saw. That saw is just to cool.
