Thats it, I'm never buying a table saw. My ex-girlfriend's dad also
had his thumb pulled down into a spinning blade once and it was a
fiasco just to get half a thumb re-built and partially useful... Granted,
the table saw didn't jump up and bite him, he was gingerly trying to
fetch an small scrap of wood that was sitting near the front of the
blade, and thats when it bit him. His finger got hooked by the blade,
and was forever changed.
Who among us HASN'T been seduced by a small, lovely piece of
scrap wood that is vibrating 1 millimeter away from a chisel-studded
carbide disc spinning at 4000 RPMs. Some men thrust their hand
near the jaws of the dragon time and again, to retrieve chicklet sized
scraps of pine... Ah the treasured wood, pine.
My bandsaw will eat whatever I push into its path, but it still doesn't
scare me as much as tablesaws. I'll think about it some more, but I
really am starting to appreciate the safety aspects of my bandsaw.
The software said it ran under Windows 98/NT/2000, or better.
So I installed it on Linux...
