I want to step in for Daniel here. I don’t know him, don’t have his fence. I am just a member who saw this post in my RSS feed and thought to look at it. Just my opinion.

That said, I have seen many times the use of the table saw as depicted in the “No Safety Fence” portion of the video. Yes, it’s a bone head maneuver. Yes, using a couple of feather boards or hold-downs would have made the cut safer. At least a push stick was used – I’ve seen guys push the board right up to the point where the blade was almost at their finger, then letting it go so the board was ejected back at them, and the guy was proud that the cut came out so well!

Idiocy? Of course, but that’s what Darwinism is all about. In my opinion, the depiction wasn’t that far from reality, just far from the reality of someone who normally uses their saw in at least a relatively safe manner. The world is full of idiots. Mr. Deulen is just trying to make one aspect of life a bit safer for folks. I bet the “Tablesaw Idiot” won’t buy the product anyway.
