But what about the band saws?

I never take the blade guards off my band saw.

You do have a blade guard on the band saw?
can I see a picture of it?
Anyway the issue is not referred to “keep the blade guard on” , nobody would recommend to take it off.
The question is: can we all exploit the available technology without paying 4000 $ / € for a safe power saw?
Or, if you prefer, can we retrofit (I think this is the word) our already working saws with an updated safety technology?
It seems we can’t.
Cheers and thanks
