    Good joinery is made with a pencil. Great joinery is made with a hot dog.

    It's a little hard to imagine that saw staying accurate after very many of those violent cycles.

    For cycling, there is an airbag that is worn around the neck, and it inflates into a helmet to protect the head in the event of a crash.

    Hi Cameron, at wood shows you'll see those type of systems cycled a few hundred times.

    Felder recommends an inspection at around 1,000 operations if I remember correctly.

    Regards, Rod.

    P.S. At about 3:40 in the video he makes a sawing mistake that I'm amazed SCM left in the video.

    No safety glasses anywhere. One clamp only, nothing to prevent the wood from pivoting into the blade. No hearing protection.
    Or did you mean the trapped off cut shooting back towards the operator? At least it stayed low and did not go up near to eye level.

    I am surprised he didn’t pull the fence back.
    Bumbling forward into the unknown.

    I noticed that as well.

    I also thought it was generous to call that a sausage- looks like a hot dog to me.

    This is exactly why saws need to be engineered this way, Humans are the un-safe part, as some of us have been saying for years.

    At least the operator was not looking at the audience and talking while he cut. Wonder if he speaks any English?

    Hi Bill, I meant the trapped offcut, the saw has a multifunction fence, it should have been pulled back to the strat of the blade.
