Re: free hand table saw use
regardless, of whom or what, or who says what, this life is not not risk free, using guards not using guards, free hand cutting no free hand cutting,
I have watched the "extreme sports" on TV, of kids doing flips on the there motorcycles, jumping over things,
no In my opinion, (and yes I was young once and did ride some motocross) but would never think of doing what there doing, I would say that is breaking nearly ever rule in the book, for safe riding, but then some may say that just riding a motor cycle is not safe, (and yes many of the extreme riders have got hurt, and will get hurt.
all I know is that for me to go and try to flip the motorcycle over a jump would not be wise, but apparently for some they can do it with a given amount of expertise, and repeat the action over and over again, to me doing a back flip on a motor cycle regardless of your skill level is not safe, I am sure there would be discussion by one who can do it and do it repeatably as to the safety of the stunt,
should one free hand cut, the written rules say no, is there more danger or risk in it, YES,
can it be done apparently as most here have said they have done it in some manor,
really the question may be should it be done?
All I know is life will never be risk free, and at times Knowing what the RISK is half of the problem,
when a novice or beginner, does some thing that a seasoned pro does it can defiantly Be a disaster, (just like if I went to jump a motorcycle today and try a back flip), my guess is it would be a disaster, (for me and the bike), but for some of these hot shot kids, it is an ever day ride,
