Dick, I recall hearing several woodworkers with way more experience than me saying the band saw is more dangerous than the table saw simply because people let their guard down and don’t treat it with as much respect.

I don’t think we are the most dangerous power tool in the shop. I think the most dangerous power tool in the shop is whatever one we respect the least. As I mentioned on a previous post, my little brother has run a drill bit through his thumb twice now with his cordless drill and he’s never so much as scratched himself once on a router or a shaper or a table saw and he works full-time in a cabinet shop, using the latter three eight or ten hours a day.
