Here’s a great example of what not to do

I can’t add anything to this other than my shock and amasement.

Yee Gads. Aside from all the fal-de-ral with starting the motor, using the fence to register the crosscut is a recipe for disaster. And of course it’s a good idea to have your kid sit downrange of any potential kickback of the workpiece, now trapped between the fence and blade, ready for liftoff.

Oh man, closed my eyes after the shiver went up my spine and said a prayer for that guy!

Hopefully he took the advise of the first few commentators.

As my Father-in-Law use to say, “an accident waiting to happen”. My guess is that he has no clue of all the dangers.

This guy sure doesn’t have a lick of common sence. I bet he doesn’t do that for too much longer before he visits the local emergency room.

I haven’t gerry-rigged something like that since I was 10 years old. And it was stupid then.

Let me see, you do something that stupid, film it, send it out for the world to see, and are proud of it. This guy never got in line when they handed out brains. Stupidity at it’s finest!

Gentlemen I agree with all of you.
The problem remains that “You tube” et al. should have some social responsibility to at least brand this type of naivety as unacceptable or just plain stupid.

The second thing that crosses my mind is that when people like this report to the hospital for treatment the diagnosis can become (Table saw accident) . That statistically will jump start our bureaucrats into regulating our equipment to such a degree that it is no longer functional.

Those of us who care should be indignant.

“Someone needs this guys phone number”!!. I watched the video to the point where he started the saw. That turned my stomach enough. Did not finish watching. This is probably a heck of a nice guy that is suffering from a total lack of intelligence. Poor guy

Indignant, no doubt. I wish there was some way to identify idiots before they infect others. The problem is that they look like regular folk walking down the street. You can’t tell the stupid ones until they do something, then it’s too late.

hi Russel:
When a guy reports to his medical facility and he says “our tools” harmed him it should’nt be used as statistic until the tool itself can be counted inadequate.
The billions that accrue to lawyers and insurance companies are a direct result of having untrained people running potentially harmfully machines.
The question remains, are the machines harmful or are the operators not qualified?

I did go to You Tube and post a copy of my above response. “I hope he is still alive or has his site left to read it with” !!) “EEE-GADS”
Also had it flagged as inapproate. Maybe, Just maybe someone will pull it.
God bless

I shook my head when I seen him “kick start” the saw.

I forgot about the littel girl. Yikes
