I should have said, if I had been thinking before typing, that I would highly recommend manufacturers add this safety device.   Mickey   On Mar 28, 2004, at 9:29 PM, Residence Organ List wrote:   > Subject: Re: [Residence Organs] SawStop > From: "Bob Loesch" <rrloesch@jps.net> > Date: Sun, 28 Mar 2004 07:29:01 -0800 > > Mickey, with all due respect to you, and Dennis, and any others who > have > had accidents of this sort, I must take extreme exception to your idea > of > "mandatory addition"!

Sorry, Mickey! I've = been around machinery all of my life, and I know that it is dangerous. I'm a farm kid, and am used to being careful. I can honestly say that every = time I had an accident, it was the result of some dumb thing I did, not the = lack of a 'safety device'. I think (and I should have said this), that safety is our own personal problem, and we must accept that the machines are dangerous, and not rely on 'safety devices' which can and do fail. Such devices often cause a false sense of security, which can lead to worse injury than not having the device and simply being careful. Far removed, I know, from organ building. Sorry for the digression. Regards, Bob, who often types without thinking... ":-(     At 06:54 AM 3/29/2004, Mickey Sadler wrote: >Bob, > >Actually I do agree with you.

I split finger on the fence to keep the = right hand away from the blade and the left hand watches. This time though the = left was pushing past the blade against the fence then the push stick idea seemed = good and that was then boom. A lot of cursing for doing something stupid then = the realizing that the rest of Saturday was going to be spent in an emergency room. poop!   Gota call the doc now so he can see it.

I didn't mean to =   infer that anything you did was 'stupid'. I wasn't there, so I couldn't know one way or the other. I apologize for any 'mental discomfort'.   Regards, Bob   At 08:09 AM 3/29/2004, Pipewheezr@aol.com wrote: >This happened because I started thinking while cutting that what I should =   >do, instead of paying attention to what was doing and not change my >holding technique IN THE MIDDLE OF A CUT!
