As you all know by now I am a safety preaching wood worker whom will try to push safety in the shop and every where else that I can. In my prior profession I saw too much blood shed all labeled under the term' ACCIDENT". It can be behind the wheel of a automobile, walking on the street or in the home and especially in the home shop. I found that ACCIDENTS is caused by a common term I call "FAILURE". Failure of us to think and pay attention to what we are doing and when that happens and the conditions are present that "FAILURE" becomes the "Accident".
I am attaching a video of something that I am sure of that all of us are aware of and in this one it stars a well known television actor we all know by the name of "TOM" . I have see several videos of the table saw safety device however not as good as this one. (don't panic there is no blood) but it demostrates a point as to how dangerous the saw is. Have a happy and a safe Memorial day.
