I think what you would find that the majority of regulars on this site would be proponents of safety measures due to the sheer number of beginners that visit.

I would bet that less than 1/3 use them on older saws in private residence. My old grizzly 690 that I got off of CL was used primarily as a Dado saw in a shop and the guy had lost it. So I got the adjustable micro jig and just respect the saw.

I wont lie, I think very hard every time before I hit the power button. where I am standing, floor clear, ensure that my tables are clear, ect.

I’ve had two kick backs, one where I got a decent bruise in my hip… I now stand in a different spot and never push wider than long stock thru without using the Miter.
