- re: handtools - remember that for generations and generations, craftsmen made their livings with handtools so they aren't "slow". If you were slow using handtools and doing piece work, you starve to death.Jul 17, 2012
- @Megan- except to collect the shavings for re-lighting the hearth fire... ;-) (Situation is much improved now!)Jul 17, 2012
- Bob made a great point: the table saw already has all the safety features that will prevent most accidents.Jul 17, 2012
- A properly set-up and fully equipped tablesaw that is...
Are all appropriate safety bits installed (guard, riving knife/splitter, pawls, etc)? Is the saw in fine fettle (blade to fence parallelism, dust collection, clean work surface, motor, belts, etc)? Kickback can still happen, is the "blast zone" clear behind you? Are you out of the way yourself? Are you using good technique?Jul 17, 2012
- Thanks,and !
Kari - you are right. I hope other, significant factors will influence the decision and the politics of implementation. Keeping fingers crossed,Jul 17, 2012
- "Keeping fingers crossed" -- I think you mean to say "keeping fingers ATTACHED". :)Jul 17, 2012
- - I believe all the things you mentions should be part of some type of certification (for lack of a better term) for people buying a table saw. Hard to enforce for someone buying a used table saw, but easily enforced with someone buying a new table saw.
How best to do it? I have an opinion, but many others do, too.Jul 17, 2012
