Safer Saws – Ally Hodgson

  1. In a SawStop demonstration video, the creator, Steven Gass explains, “the system can tell the difference between your finger and the wood. So when you’re cutting wood, if you accidentally run your hand into the blade, it will stop it so quickly that you just get a little nick instead of maybe taking some fingers off.”
  2. Gass is explaining what the SawStop is and what it does.
  3. Gass uses a definitional claim because he’s explaining what the SawStop is.
  4. His claim is very informational. He explains what the Saw Stop is and how it works. The claim makes sense and isn’t contradictory. The claim is persuasive in that most people think this is a really good idea from hearing this.
