I don’t care how safe it is the man is INSANE to do this.
I sawed off the end of 3 fingers on my left hand no way I would ever consider trying this on purpose.
It took years for my hand to quit hurting and I still don’t have any feeling in the tips.
It felt like I stuck my hand in a bucket of hot coals for months.

He shows the ultimate faith in his invention. Not to mention he got REALLY nice marketing footage of brake activation from Timewarp in exchange for the “demo”.

he went into the blade very slowly and controlled, I wonder how much of a mark it would leave if he went into it like you would if you were making a regular cut.
