I'm not sure if they even have any safety rules where this guy is from it's all about making money for some people.hello bruce b,

Just purchased a saw just like that for building small doll houses. My wife thought it was overkill, but I don't agree:blink:I think he and the saw are both grandfathered in before the osha rules:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: Have you ever seen the saw they cut wooden shingels with that thing is even scarier that why there all from Canada you could run the saw here:laughing:
Holy crap! You could cut a hand off on one blade, get distracted and cut your other hand off on another.I think he and the saw are both grandfathered in before the osha rules:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: Have you ever seen the saw they cut wooden shingels with that thing is even scarier that why there all from Canada you could run the saw here:laughing:
Exactly! It is a complete concentration and focus. And knowing your tools. This subject has come up before and I've taken some flack for my opinions on it. But the fact is, if I cannot give 100% of my focus and concentration to what I am doing, then I do not turn on that TS or router. There are always other tasks to be done without risking my appendages. Like all else, the ability to walk into my shop, and FOCUS on what I am doing, is something which has come with practice. I have mostly older tools, and none have safety guards, etc. It is ENTIRELY MY OWN responsibility to ensure my own safety. And, I believe, that is as it should be. It is also my own responsibility to know when not to use those tools, and to know when to take a break.Have you ever watched Sam Maloof do any freehand cutting on the bandsaw?
The old craftsmen who have all their fingers never loose their concentration are always aware of what is going on with their cutting tools!
