The huge judgment entered against Ryobi by a Massachusetts jury is ridiculous.The user (Carlos Osorio) was operating the saw with no blade guard, splitter, or rip fence.Although Mr.Osorio may not have been aware of the dangers of these missing safety devices due to his inexperience, that is not the fault of Ryobi (manufacturer of the portable tablesaw being used) or One World Technologies (Ryobi's parent company).
It is excessive to ask that all saws be equipped with flesh-sensing technology.Well-made woodworking tools are costly enough, without adding a sensor and brake mechanism that will increase the cost of the tool by hundreds of dollars.
