Pretty amazing, but I don't think I could ever quite trust it to stop.

Ditto!

Yikes! This is why they invented the phrase "don't try this at home, folks"!!

Heh. I know that feeling.

I remember reading about this when it first came out. As it happened, I was at the time making my living using spinning saw blades, among other things. I thought about getting a table saw so equipped, and figured, "I don't really need to test it (beyond the hotdog stage) -- I'll just assume that it's as potentially lethal as the original table saw, and who knows? Maybe someday, it'll save me a finger."

Ended up moving on to other things before the price came down, though, so I never did get one.

But yes, this is one of those things where you can be completely convinced, intellectually, that it will work as advertised, but still, every other nerve ending in your body is saying, "Run away! Run away!"
