This must be the liberal sect. Electricity is a seductive mistress. I wonder where the Sawstop brake goes?

Awesome link thanks Carloz!

It looks like they use a rail road cart for a sliding table, gotta love it.

Used to cut firewood with a blade that size, run off a tractor PTO. Tablesaws are like toys in comparison.

Although a big saw blade like that one is intimidating, I didn’t see where any great potentially dangerous situation existed. The workers were well distant from the blade and I didn’t see any fool hardy manoeuvers. I’ve worked around very dangerous machines and never felt I didn’t belong. You have to know and understand your environment and respect it. It is a military mentality where you go into harms way and know if you screw up, it can cost you dearly.

Those big blades literally scream a reminder at you to be careful. I ran a fire wood processor a few years ago with a 6 foot blade spinning within arms reach. You quickly learn to calculate every move and stay well clear.

Great video. Love to watch saw mills in action .
A blade is a blade and no match for skin no matter how big….or small.
I’ll spare you the sight of what a 10” did to my hand a couple years ago. Lets just say they put my left pinky back on so I could hit the tab button on my keyboard. That’s all it’s good for. Can’t even pick my nose with it.

Great video. The guys in it are not hobbyists. ..... and they are at no particular risk because they know what they are doing.
I expected to look at this thread and see a nothing but comments about how unsafe it was but I’m pleased to see that there are at least a few who see it for what it is …. people doing their jobs in a sane careful manner.
