so when did the lawyers get involved?
« on: July 25, 2010, 09:46 PM »
Did I miss something here?  I have been off the fog for a week or two and all of a sudden these disclaimers have been popping up in most threads involving tool usage.  What's up with that?  Don't tell me the lawyers have actually been reading this stuff!   [scared]  I guess with those stupid Ryobi lawsuits, etc even Festool has to practice CYA.

Howard, this has already been discussed here:

I have responded there.  Now, back to talking about tools and woodworking...

Thanks Shane.  I figured it had been but I didn't find it anywhere.  Too bad that self responsibility has gone out the window...
