    Table saw?

    Looks more like a horizontal panel saw

    That's exactly what it looks like! Limited usefulness.

    That's just plain scary. I wouldn't want to even be in the room when they turn it on.

    We are all seeing the same photo aren't we? What is so scary about that saw. I used to operate one like that all the time. We used it to cut post form tops with it.

    I some times wish I could see what you others think is scary about this. It has a fence for the work to rest against and the saw blade is advanced with a chain drive that looks like the motor for it is missing. They were rather nice for what they were designed for.

    I'm with you, Alan. Withe the saw retracted, you'd place your sheet goods, then turn the crank (or turn on the drive motor) to make the cut; raise the blade (crank) and retract the saw; and you're done. No need to come anywhere close to the blade.

    I see it as a very effective way of breaking down sheet goods. The only downside I see is the amount of floor space it takes up.

    Never said it was scary, but not something I've ever seen before. I saw the chain and wondered if it was chain drive. Probably would be a good way to cut up sheet goods not having to man handle them too much.
