I didn’t start out with “50 years of experience” and I am a home type woodworker. But I was very careful to train myself in shop safety in the beginning and I use good sense and care when working. And I do value my fingers as I use them all day and every day. Accidents most often happen when someone is trying to make a cut without proper jigs or fixtures or “just getting this one cut” without using a proper way of holding the work.

I am not against a Saw Stop. But most of us home-type woodworkers can’t throw that kind of money into a table saw. But safety can be achieved without a Saw Stop by good sense and good practice. To me Saw Stop makes sense for schools and manufacturing businesses where the users are all types. And if you have the cash, by all means, buy one!
