    Watch the video of this thing in action. It won't cut flesh; only wood.

    Pretty cool, your imagination flys when you think of other things this technology could be applied to.

    DAMN! Now I need to use a jigsaw to cut off fingers... It's a whole `nother thing, entirely! Well, as long as vices will still keep an arm in place, it's no huge loss....

    that's amazing. I know a guy who fucked his hand up pretty good in a table saw, it's not a pretty thing.

    The saw still took enough off of the fingers for him not to want to put it there, lol.

    my brother recently cut the tip of his pinky off with a meat slicer. A perfect angled cut was made and I saw the missing tip in the sink ewww.

    I believe Johnny Cash's brother was killed in a table saw accident when they were both pretty young. I guess something happened and he got pulled ontop of it, cutting his chest and abdomen open...yikes!

    LOL ! Actually I think only SausageMan is safe with this thing.

    I wonder how many people were maimed during the testing of this tablesaw. And Vigostar, it certainly would do serious damange if something goes wrong when the informercial is aired LIVE ! yikes !

    Personally I wouldn't put my hand in there for the world.

    I remember... being in grade 9 shop class. I tried to be cool and fake propose to a girl with a mteal ring. But I did'nt smooth out the inside. I She after it got put on, the metal got stuck on her finger. So, she had to go to the walk in clinic by our school to get her hand numbed and the ring taken off in a very ugly way. ... she was not my prom date.

    ...ok.

    So did anyone else notice the slice in that dude's fingernail? Looks like it's not fool proof...

    Then again, I managed to fracture my foot with a 6 x 9 wacom tablet. Nothing is safe near me.
