    CPSC ANPR on table saws

    That means "Consumer Product Safety Commission Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking". They are asking for comments on requiring a safety feature on table saws. See here for one commissioner's comments.

    Anyone know how to submit comments on this subject? They say you can go to www.regulations.gov and submit comments but you need the docket number of the ANPR, which I can't find. If someone is better at finding these things, I'd appreciate your help.

    Thanks. I went into www.regulations.gov but it does not appear to be listed yet. Maybe in a few days.

    Well, I have no clue. But they will certainly ignore us if we don't comment.

    Follow the money folks. This is more political than anything else. Sawstop is at it again. They don't care about our comments, they just need to be able to say "we opened it up for public comment". Then they will move forward with their paid for agenda.

    Nothing different here. Same as a bought congress.

    I went and posted my comments. The net of my thinking is that the table saw, as is, is inherently dangerous. We tolerated this situation up to now because we didn't have any alternative. But technology has advanced to the point where we can make a saw that is significantly safer, and at a reasonable cost. We should not permit inherently dangerous tools to be sold if there's a reasonable alternative.

    And that's what I told the CPSC.
