Happened to find this on Youtube.

His fingers won’t last long if he continues this way. Not so much a question of “if”, but rather “when”.

I thought at first when I started to watch this video, that it was shot to show ”How not to use a saw”. If I were to call this guy a moron in public, I would probably be charged with defamation of character. Some people should never be allowed to get near a saw.

^exactly. Wow was my first thought too. I wish someone could flag that video as inappropriate, the fact that video has almost 14k views is insane. I couldn’t watch the whole thing and kept skipping forward, but when he makes that first rip cut and stops pushing the wood through then keeps his hand on it as the blade stops turning< I was cringing… could the blade be raised any higher?

Wow ! I can’t imagine he will have too many fingers left (or even a hand) with his techniques…..

I love his explanation of the riving knife – apparently it’s there to stop the motor from being bogged down (safety for the saw rather than safety for the user).

My favorite part is how he takes 3 minutes at first to explain how stupid all the safety devices are that he’ll soon be wishing he had installed. I find it hard to think that this is a serious video. Also he has a blade with about 500 teeth on it. Hmm.

Love this for a few laughs and I look forward to his video demonstrating how well or not well his health care coverage works.

Normally I think of such people as “nine-finger Frodo” but in this case Captain Hook seems a more appropriate moniker.

I can’t wait for the follow up video of “So that’s what the flimsy plastic piece was for” when he is minus 3 fingers, I’m pretty sure he said it was a 200T blade also…really, background checks need to be for mental health before the sale, and I now know why insurance premiums are so high guys like this are out there breeding…

You can’t fix stupid!!! The worst part is that someone will watch that vid and think he is doing things correctly, after all it’s on Youtube so it must be good information. lol. Then we will have another lawsuit against a saw company.

The guy should just save some time and have the ambulance chasing lawyers that are advertising about table saw injuries on retainer.

Of course, all you would have to do is show this video and the jury should dismiss the suit. After all, “Safety is all up in your mind and all up in your intelligence, here, not in some flimsy plastic sh!t.”

Calling that guy an idiot is an insult to real idiots everywhere.

Somebody has left comments on his channel regarding the
table saw video and apparently he deletes them after
his cronies denigrate the critic.

Go to the channel and click on “comments” to see.

I’m willing to bet there was a considerable amount of time prior to this video devoted to “puff-puff-pass”.

And for a mere $10 you too can have a pimp-daddy blade:
