Yowza! That's a manly man story!
Yup, nothing replaces being careful, but accidents happen. Sorry you had such an accident Sting. Dang! That sucks. I like the technology of the safe saws. They also can do a similar thing for band saws. It's not quite as quick, but will save a finger or hand. The band-saw one cuts the blade then stops it. In the hot dog demo the blade cuts 1/3 through before coming to a halt. Still....better than amputation! We all know a band saw can take a hand as fast as a finger. I guess the meat industry is buying the band-saw ones. I've been lucky with power tools, nothing serious so far. Once I did touch a moving band saw blade. Geepers....scared me....it drew blood, but not much. I'll tell ya, though, another 3/4" and I'd be missing a finger.
