    That is amazing...I wouldnt have believed it could possibly stop before at least cutting a little of his finger off.

    I know.

    BTW, how does one embed a YouTube video in a post? I've tried every way I can think of here, but it never works. Oh well, it's no big deal anyway.

    There are "youtube" and "/youtube" tags to wrap around... and then I seem to remember you have to slightly tweak what you copy/past from the embed on Youtube's site...

    I'll see if I can fix your original post if you'd like... and then you can see what's different.

    edit: I lied... For the life of me I can't get it to work either... and I've definitely embedded videos before.

    I saw a demo of that last year. Just like Steve someone used their finger to do the test and it worked.

    I'm a Mechanical Engineer. I understand all the forces involve; I understand the response times involved, I can calculate everything you see on the screen, and the engineer in me says it's reliable and safe....but, I don't think I could ever see myself being the Guinea Pig to test it. :eek2:

    Yeah, I'm a chicken...what of it. :cool:

    :lol:

    There were demonstrations ten years ago where they were nicking hotdogs with these saw stops.

    Well, let's just be thankful it's his finger he's testing it on and not his, well...you know. :eek:

    They are wonderful saws, but if the blade comes in contact with a drop of water on the wood, it will stop as well. The stopping mechanism is sacrificial, about $50.00 to make the saw operational again.

    Is he hold finger close to the saw steady or his finger moved to the saw ? I think if he did move it, then he would cut his finger. I think I saw little cut on that frank.

    True. I'm sure if you swiped your finger (or hand) through the blade fast enough, it would still lop it off.

    Portland,...
    I always wondered about that when I first saw a demo of these saws. If that's the case, then you wouldn't be able to cut green (wet) lumber with these table saws.

    It's really amazing how safe they are though...

    Should I assume you can lend your finger for test right now ? :eek2::nono2:
