Expensive tool, I think they mentioned something less than $100. That's not very expensive in my book, particularly when compared to the loss of a finger, or hand, or arm.and just demo means replacing blade and stopper... Yep. But I think the TV show's production budget will cover that. And quite a few outtakes as well.In practice, I'd still argue that it's easier to replace the blade and stopping mechanism than a finger. The hard part for the designers to avoid was probably false positives - stopping the blade when it's something other than a finger touching the blade.And it's only the one tool in a shop of many... True that. My dad lost part of a finger to a planer. Still, an additional safety on one well-used tool is better than no additional safety.--Peter
