I’d vote for the radial arm saw. Even more dangerous than a table saw. The whole blade is mostly exposed and it has this scary climb cut feature where the blade is forced toward the user.

It can also throw things quite well. I had it knock my grinder off a table with a 3” x 3” x 6” block of pine. By my estimate it was going about 300 mph when it left the saw.
