...or don t have 50 years experience and only get to spent 10 hours at most in the shop per week, or need your fingers for you day job with a keyboard.

You guys remind me of life long smokers that haven t gotten cancer yet.

Using a saw safely is a choice, not experience. But there are people who want the safety feature and I have nothing against it. Just don t pretend like it s necessary and we all should have it.

He touted his experience as a factor in not needing one.

Who said you should have one? Who said it was necessary? Are you sure you are answering the proper thread?

You also brought up experience as a reason for having one. And then compared it to cancer as if injury were an inevitable consequence. I disagree with both those opinions. But you did not say we should all have one, my mistake for bringing it up. But I recently read an article in non woodworking magazine that flesh sending tech should be made law on all table saws so I guess it was on my mind.
