I’ve used a lot of tools that could hurt me if I’m hot careful and don’t use them right and the TS is just one of them. We have lots of specialty tools at the fire department that can do far worse damage than the TS. I treat the TS no different. I’m careful and use it right, but I realize that shit can happen. I’m not going to use a chain saw that has no teeth or a hydraulic spreader that has no no hoses attached. I can’t afford the saw stop and even if I could I wouldn’t get it. I know I’m knocking on wood here, but I feel I’ve been using dangerous tools my whole life and I’m not going to be afraid to use them now. I know what I can do with a chain saw and what I can do with a TS. My feeling is that if you are not as experienced with tools and can can afford it, get the saw stop. I don’t think we will see all saws have this technology anytime soon. Just my thoughts.
