That's hilarious, in a black-humor kind of way.  But think of the positive -- it only cost the buyer $1!  That way, he has some money saved for the emergency-room bill.

Worst part is that I have (in my distant past) temporiry made a contraption of  at-least equal safety using a Black & Decker Workmate table and a Makita circular saw.  It worked great, but no splitter, blade guard, or anti-kickback devices.  Locked the trigger and used a power strip with a switch for on/off.  I only did it a couple of times and (by the grace of God) managed to keep all my digits in tact.

Watch, I will become one of the 2 people in the history of Festool to injur myself with the TS 75

     Say, don't knock it. That is a great multi purpose tool.....   Just tip it over on its side and it can be used as a horizontal slot cutter :o

I have a Shopsmith Mark V and plan on keeping it.  I find it useful as a sanding center, a drill  press, horizontal boring machine (before Domino), and a lathe.  Do any of you have a Festool lathe, yet?
