Oh, sure, absolutely - after extensive empirical studies over a period of years, each of which have been peer reviewed by a number of éminence grise woodworkers who shall remain unnamed, I published my Ph.D. thesis on this question!   Laugh 

But seriously, anecdotal, and a couple from my personal observation.  Example is a guy in my neighborhood who bought a SS, nice machine for sure, but he seemed to think he didn't need different pushsticks for different operations, featherboards and holddown fixtures, or that roller stands or outfeed tables might come in handy and that rip blades were unnecessary.  More of an observation of mine that younger people who didn't have the opportunity to get the safety training given in Jr. High and HS wood shop classes seem oblivious about proper technique.   So I took him into my shop and showed him a few things, and gave him an old book on tablesaw techniques I had sitting around.

I guess my point was just because the saw won't bite you doesn't mean all sorts of other bad things can't happen, and some people are conditioned into a plug and play mentality when there's a whole lot more involved with serious machines.  And don't misunderstand, I'm not bashing SS at all, its great technology - just not a substitute for using proper technique.

Well, there's also the progression; BS (B888 S888), MS (more S888) and PhD (piled higher and deeper)!

I spend my share of time on the Special High Intensity Training list.

I just found out that UVA re-named a hall after my advisor. His first PhD student made a small contribution.

I need to share that with him (says the guy who needed a 2yr extension to finish Blush )

Where do I need to give the graduation address in order to receive the Honorary Masters Degree in Procrastination? Winkgrin 

I do need to find time to finish the mallet on my lathe. Sigh
