Despite Proven Technology, Attempts To Make Table Saws Safer Drag On
A physicist has come up with an elegant solution for minimizing accidents involving table saws, which cause about 4000 amputations in the US every year. Steve Gass fitted saws with a sensor that halts the blade when it detects the electrical current in a human finger (or, as shown in the picture, a hot dog). Now Gass and others are trying to convince regulators to require such safety technology in table saws.
