    Cynthia probably doesn't realize the type of debates this topic has caused in the past. As a friendly Public Service Announcement, let's try to keep it civil, folks.

    Vaughn.....can of worms really covers it.

    Think I will exercise my common sense and just keep my mouth shut. You don't make many friends by arguing.

    Here we go!
    I want a saw stop eventually.
    Be easy to afford and justify after losing fingers/hand.
    Why does he want it mandated?
    We are a country of free people, free to cut off our fingers if we so choose.
    It's either this or cry!
    It seems to be a black and white issue, no gray areas.

    Sorry, guys, I didn't mean to start an argument. I thought it was interesting to see a woodworking topic in the national news.

    I thank Cynthia for bringing this up, sore of like prayer, need to do do and or be reminded every day about safety. That's why we have safety charts hanging in our shops.
    I was on a job about 25 years ago and a good friend hacked off his hand while I was faux painting on the job we meet at. It was not pretty and I sort of see the scene every time I start up the table saw. Main thing, check everything 2 and 3 times, the area around you your guides. I do not want to hear about an accident. So my son Jarrod tells me I'm not touching that thing. He is so annal about safety and I am glad for that.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    It's ok as long as you posted it with wing-nuts.
