There has been copious amounts of virtual ink (and probably more than a little actual ink) used to discuss the recent settlement awarding $1.5 million to a Massachusetts woodworker who injured his fingers using a table saw. There is automotive technology now available that will keep you in your lane and brake for you…So if I’m using my cell phone while driving and get distracted and swerrve into or rear end some innocent party I now have legal precedence to sue my automaker for not making this technology available to me???
If there was an inherent design defect that caused the accident I can understand the award. Re: he guy who lost his fingers on his saw, it is frightening to know that they are out there and they are even allowed to breed. I also disabled my left hand on my tablesaw this past August and I confirm that it is a painful and depressing injury.
I think the lawyers should have to pay the 1.5 mil and then pour gas and a match on the lawyers. I have been unfortunate but mostly foolish having injuring myself not once but twice with my tablesaw. Common sense tells you be careful around tools, common sense tells you the coffee is hot don’t spill it on yourself. Two things: First about the band saw-The is the tool meat cutters use and it works very well for that and could care less what kink of meat it cuts. We have a Delta Uniguard on one of our Unisaws (one without a sliding table) – and would have liked that it had come with dust collection.
I read a news story a while back about a weekend warrior who cut his left arm off with a brand new 12″ Makita chop saw (safety shield, automatic brake) when rushing to get the job done. I’ve sometime wondered if all these safety features sometimes conspire to lull people into a false sense of security. I worked in a production wood shop for 3 years and worked with all kinds of table saw tools and routers. Charlie R { Conductive hook and loop tape was used extensively in the Space Shuttle program for temporarily installed protective covers on the SRB booster segments.
Chris { Rumor has it harbor freight was forced to discontinue the machine for patent issues. If the table saw isn’t cutting parallel to the miter gauge groove, adjust the cutting blade following the instructions in this repair guide. All parts are manufacturer-approved, to ensure proper fit and to keep appliances running for years to come.

This option is valuable if you expect to revisit Sears PartsDirect using this computer and browser in the future. There is a mechanism on most table saws that allows the arbor to be tilted for making angled (bevel) cuts. In the example above, it would seem like the gap is pretty big and should be pretty easy to eliminate. If the accuracy of angle cuts is measured in terms of degrees, then the amount of acceptable error depends on the length and width of each member. Rather than determine how long each joint is and convert the gap width to degrees, it’s much easier to measure angular accuracy in terms of how much gap (or deviation) exists between the perfect (ideal) angle and the sample being measured. If you could accurately measure the results of a test cut, then you can save yourself a lot of time and scrap wood. In order to avoid test cuts altogether, you have to know what your machine setting will produce before the first cut is made. The Angle Attachment Gage is attached to the dial indicator on the TS-Aligner Jr.  The squared up blade is used to locate its proper position on the dial indicator stem.
The Wixey Digital Angle Gauge is first calibrated on the table surface.  Since it depends on gravity, a square is used to ensure that the Wixey is oriented properly.
Then the stylus is raised to the top of the angle block.  Any change in reading indicates that the blade is not tilted to the proper angle. A quick reference table is included on the back cover of the User’s Guide so that angles can be easily determined without the need to do any calculations. Numbers for the Wixey Digital Angle Gauge are expressed in degrees.  The numbers for TS-Aligner Jr.

Only the jury has the complete facts of this case and the charge by the judge of the laws involved. I’d rather help them get their project done so that I can relax and not worry about them hurting themselves with my tool,on my property. But if it was ignorance or negligence then the responsibility should not be the manufacturers. This is where your money is going to in the health system – only lawsuit is making a lot of money.
I got nothing for mine but I got FREE health care as Norway have the best healthcare in the world. If you trip because of a hole in a parking lot and break your arm you cannot sue because you should of seen the hole. Safety equipment is best if you have proper training and have a mindset that is up to the job at hand (paying attention.) We have job safety discussions at the start of each work day.
I have a combat grade flak jacket and welders mask and don’t put your body in the plane of the cut.
With one baseboard left, he brought the saw down with his arms crossed rather than take the time to reset the angle for right handed use. You need to engage your brain – and that brain needs to be trained so as to be aware of the inherent dangers. I would say the #1 important job of this accessory is to collect the dust coming off the blade. And Sears PartsDirect has more table saw repair help for you, including troubleshooting tips, explanations of what different band saw parts do and solutions for common symptoms.
Longer joints (from wider boards) will require higher angular accuracy than shorter joints. As the top of the tooth cuts the fiber, the face is planing for smoothness with little, if any tear, chipping or feathering.
A great blade for cutting birch and oak ply veneers and low pressure lamnates such as melamine and vinyl over particle board. The guy who borrowed the chain saw brought it back and said he would pay for the chaps because they got cut up.
He kicks himself daily for not having COMPLETE focus for that one second when the accident happened! We talk about what we are doing, discuss any special or new concerns, what tools we will be using, look over set-ups and PPE required.

The photo above shows how the Angle Attachment Gage is precisely machined to construct this right triangle geometry so that side A is measured by the dial indicator and side B is fixed at a precise distance.
My friend said that the guy had no clue how the chaps probably saved his life or at least kept him from severe damage.
What we need is not limits on settlements rather to limit what a lawyer can make on a claim and make the lawyers financially responsible for costs incurred by the manufacturer if the case fails. It is a sad accident, but no fault of the saw, manufacture, or anyone else except the guy who made the mistake. We also try to instill the notion that “you are you brother’s keeper” and everyone needs to call time out if they see a serious safety issue.
Exclusions apply to products with limited shelf life which includes but are not limited to batteries, smoke detectors or chemical-based products, which must be returned within 90 days of the original order date. Given enough time, patience, and scrap wood, it’s actually possible to obtain good results with this method. When the length of side A is measured to be exactly the same as side B then the angle is 45°. It courses through my han down to my elbow ans shoots out of the stubbs remaining on my hand.
I just held firm pressure on it, then cleaned it out under running water and bandaged it very tightly. We try to get each of our crew members to look out for each other – so everyone goes home at the end of the day – tired but not injured. The typical machinists protractor graduated to five minutes of arc generally starts at about $140. I have used tools all my life, I grew up helping my dad work in his shop and have continued woodworking and home renovation in my adult life. One has to ask why we have to pay for other people lack of responsibility to learn how to use tools properly and safely. We try to make safety supervision everyone’s job – not just our lead carpenter or crew boss. The big advantage of this method is that you avoid the need to cut out all the parts for every trial. You’ll be called upon to judge the gap and determine how much adjustment is necessary. Also – speaking of tired – we try to undertake operations that require most attention – when everyone is fresh – trying to avoid starting difficult tasks during those typical lull periods after lunch.
In the end, you’ll be trying to make adjustments to within thousandths of an inch and these are extremely difficult to do by eye.
In my state they passed a tort reform so that people can only get $250,000 in damages for pain and suffering.
And, every cycle of the process involves cutting out all the parts to see how they fit. Most people who use this method generally settle for a larger gap than they originally wanted and resort to methods for hiding that error (like trying to even it out among all the joints). A growing number of woodworkers are coming to appreciate this approach and many manufacturers are now producing aftermarket accessories that help facilitate it. I possibly will never do the things I love again like draw a picture, ride my bike or paddle my kayak. I stand either to the left or right of the two miter slots on my table saw when making a cut on it and I use push stick, feather boards, etc. I’m glad I made it up from my garage to tell my wife I hurt myself before I went into shock so I have a life.
Lossing part of my hand seems insignifant ccompared to my life and the thought of my kids growing up without a father is far worse.
