I came across this video: https://www.ronhazelton.com/projects/a_safe_table_saw_and_building_system_for_children

That little table saw looks super cool but I can’t find it anywhere on the internet. Has anyone ever seen these before or know where to get them?

i believe that was a prototype that Ron Hazelton was trying to produce about 7 yrs ago. Based off of the same platform that saws for removing casts use.

That is awesome! Looks much safer than my homemade table saw. Definitely wouldn’t let my kids around mine.

If I can get a good price on a cast cutter I can use one of these table saw designs to mount it….except that cast cutters are obscenely expensive being that they’re “medical equipment”.....ah well…..maybe I’ll find one at a flea market one day.

Is it just me, or is the post with the ‘nibbler’ a bit scary the way he describes how he put his infant’s finger in it? That and how his son just puts his hand on the screw. I think Ron Hazelton’s approach was much better as he was showing the boy exactly how you respect a power tool.

How do you manage to keep the fence square on it?

Hopefully this doesn’t teach kids to lose their respect for a real table saw.

I think he did it while the machine was off, just like test-fit to see if the finger would fit in the narrow gap.

I also really like the Hazelton saw, such a cool concept.

Doesn’t a cast removing tool work just like those oscillating multi-tools like the Fein Multimaster?

Why not just let a child (with supervision) use a scroll saw? Probably a lot more fun for them and pretty safe.

Have your say...
