While I certainly appreciate (and strongly practice) the argument that safety is a function of your mind, I do appreciate any extra edge I can get in preserving life and limb.

I do find the argument that SS technology won’t protect against bandsaw, jointer or mitre saw accidents to be a little silly. I don’t expect the anti-lock brakes on my car to protect me when I’m riding my motorcycle and I certainly wouldn’t expect my table saw safety feature to protect me from a bandsaw injury.
