Is this ridiculously dangerous or am I overly cautious?

When something seems dangerous to you, listen to your inner voice. That way you don’t have to listen to the ER nurse saying, “You did WHAT?”.

I think he’s rolling the dice and one of these times the scrap piece is going to bind up as it drops and fly back in his face.

I wrote the above without looking at the video, having watched it, I would say WTF! If you were standing out of the way, maybe those pieces I saw fall into the interior wouldn’t hit you when (not if ) one decided to come back out. But besides safety, I imagine a piece ricocheting around inside can’t do your alignment any good.

That’s not right. I actually winced when I saw it drop down in there!

And his shop makes mine look clean. And my wife reminds me daily that it isn’t.

Looks like Sawstop is going to love it when this guy hurts himself by using this saw inapropriatley and sues the manufacturer for some outrageous amount of money for something that could easily be avoided. Steve Glass will point out that if it were a Sawstop, no accidents would happen. I’m sure everybody here knows it’s going to happen, no matter what brand of saw is used. I would never use this saw in this way; that’s just asking for trouble.

Reminds me of the saying: “You can’t cure stupid!” If anything every happens to the guy, this video is exhibit one for assumption of risk.

Looks like he’s using a 3/8 dado blade to make the cut with.
Don’t know what some people are thinking when they do things sometimes.

Nope! Just until that last, final, fatal mistake!

I flagged the video as very dangerous, the others should also. That is going way farther than not turning his dust collection on ! This isn’t just “not wearing safety glasses” this could really teach a inexperienced guy how to cut his hand off our something.
