Never mind the belt (although it is fabulous :laughing:).

Could they not figure out how to raise the stand for that saw?

And yikes, poor saw, I hope that cut didn't really need to be straight.

Kind of reminds me of my brother in law, an electrician, using a table saw.:clap:
That was my first thought as well.

Are we talking about the guy or the girl?

They really should require homeowners to take a safety course before using a table saw.

I heard a story once. Three people standing around a table saw feeding a 12' rough sawn plank through the saw, no fence, no safety. The material bound and spun like a pin wheel. All of them were hospitalized... scary stuff.

I thought the first rule was to not attempt to stop blade with hands.

The person catching the board in front of the blade. Not the moron pushing the board. He's the one that's not suppose to stop the blace with his hands. :laughing:

I'm not sure whether this "Tool belt" video or the current "coffee shop prank" is scarier or funnier.

As goofy as the belt is, I dont get many females on the jobsite, so I would allow her to be there, but skip any power tools.

I wonder what that cut looked like. Festool should use that video as an advertisement for the TS55.

Isn't there some sort of city ordinance that prohibits you from "setting up shop" on the sidewalk in front of your house?

Doesn't look like the same one but it took me a bit to figure out how to raise the gravity stand...

At least she has looks....

I know. I'm watching on my poor quality phone, trying to figure out who they were talking about with a suspicion it was her.. Then I saw her profile and was thinking HELLOOOOOO- then I saw her tugging on that sheet and all I could think was- I can't believe they put that on tape- and was sadly waiting for what I thought was an impending disaster averted for another day. Why the dude wasn't yelling at her I don't know, less he was busy doing some ogling with her bending over like that ;)
