I agree, most of the wood working accidents are a result of misuse or abuse.
There's those who should not handle or use anything that is sharp!!!
Perhaps the drop in incidents, is a result of those people talking on a different hobby."
"Now on a more serious note, Table saws and any machines designed to "saw" will do just that.
Abuse or missuse them and you may suffer a minor or serious injury.
The Saw stop saga has been going for some time, and I do not doubt that it…"
"I obtained a saw and was hoping to upgrade the guard. Now I see that the program just requires you to return the motor for $100. Is anyone who obtained a guard assembly (and did not use or need) wish to part with it for a reasonable price?"
"Currently, the K5 is being stocked mainly through independent dealers, online retailers, and specialty stores. Most of the home centers are stocking the K4 Jigs, instead.

"Hi Brian - I have the K3 and the K4. The local stores in my area still do not have the K5 on their shelves.
I'm afraid that when they do get them in and I walk past them, I'll end up throwing one in the cart. Can't resist."
"Haven't seen any K5's at my local Menards yet. In this weeks flyer they are offering the K4 Jig Master System for $139 with a free box (500 count) of screws. They have 4 or 5 of these K4's on the shelf.
