    Uh, is this right?

    You don't have to watch much, but is this how it is done? Could this be one of the mysterious Ryobi tablesaws that eats fingers?

    What a hack! I was amused/shocked by his use of a "fingerboard". Then watching him get whacked in the nuts two times by kickback thrown pieces and he doesn't get it.

    I am speechless. I now understand some of the drivers I see on the road or those obliviously rude people you see in the grocery store. There is apparently an entire sub-nation of people out there who require training-wheels for many aspects of their life.

    First workshop lesson I learned was do not use the fence on a table saw for cross cutting. Hunka 2x4 shot into the solar plexus is a lesson not soon forgotten.
    I didn't watch the whole video, afraid I would learn a bad lesson.

    It's a classic case of someone who doesn't know exactly what it is he doesn't know. Unbelieveable.... He seems to have acknowledged at least that what he's doing isn't right, but he still left the video up...

    I just now tried to post a comment (with some suggestions) but YouTube returned an error message.

    I'll try again later.

    I will be honest, I didn't make it very far into the video. Just to much to soak up and learn all at once.

    To be honest, with the judgment that was past down while back, I can't believe the saw manufacture hasn't ask for that to be pulled. You can't fix stupid.
