Table Saw (This is amazing)

Table Saw.... (This is amazing)

For those of you who use a table saw, you will find this fascinating.
You are going to enjoy this one.

If you have never seen "Time Warp," it's a show all about super-duper
slow motion cameras capturing things we take for granted and never see
as they really are. In this case, they take photos of this guy'snew
invention. What a combination!

WoW

...Do I get my money back if I lose a finger operating the saw? lol

I'm too "opposite of low" to finish watching this right now

I may freak out.

Mongo impressed!

.

What if the wood you are cutting is wet?

Seems like a saw stopping unpredictably (and breaking its parts) wouldn't be good either. Still a very cool video, though.

it drops the blade

I know someone who worked at a cabinet shop which had one of these. He said if they had wet wood it would drop out the blade.

But someone there, an experienced carpenter, did lose a finger which is why they decided to get a sawstop.

The founders would be ashamed at us for what we are putting up with.

Alternative

I was seriously looking at a saw stop as I wanted the best in safety. But I came across the idea of track saw as a safe alternative to a table saw. I chose the modular one from eurekazone.com and love it. The website is crappy so you'll need to do some research on it to figure things out. I think this could eventually be an opensource idea. They have a great community forum constantly giving and trying new ideas and the system is constantly evolving.

kickback

I forgot, also the track saw concept solves the issue of kickback which causes more injury than blade to flesh contact.

Just saying..

Very old news..

Thanks anyway.

I try to change people every day. Do You?

I like it!

I have paid well over $60 for saw blades.
And I have actually lost a small piece of skin from getting too close!

I wonder about other forms of moister

during a working day. What about using really wet wood drenched from rain?

I've done some carpentry and the crews I've worked on, took off every safeguard they could, so they could work better. :)

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

O_O

Even after seeing the demonstration, I'm not sure I would have had the grapes to test it out myself, lol. Pretty neat.

I've got the grapes to do it... Now...

My balls have shriveled up, just thinking of it!
