I'm with you on all of the above. I am a "DIY"'er but pretty much know my limitations.

One thing I noticed the other day, watching TOH, was Tom Silva gluing two pieces of plastic trim together, then cutting them down to create an exterior window sill. NO blade guard on his table saw! This was three days after a buddy of mine, a carpenter, sliced his finger to the bone on a table saw 'cause he didn't want to take the time to put the blade guard on.

Most of the time these guys on TV do work safely but this one really hit home being just a few days after the incident. I believe that all the shows should take a few minutes to go over safety.
