Tyson Still- Saw Safety

“To reduce the possibility of injury in the HANDY shop, we use a SawStoptable saw. This saw features ‘flesh-detecting’ technology  that instantly stops and lowers the blade if your hand (or hot dog – click here for a video demo), for example, comes in contact with it. (SawStop received a HANDY Innovation award for its contractor’s saw in 2008.) I believe every commercial job site and institutional shop should be equipped with this type of saw. The greatly reduced risk of injury (and the associated medical costs) more than justifies the saw’s higher price.”

Evaluation claim

The author of this claim has tried to prove that this saw is safer not only by listening to Steve Gass but trying the saw him-self. What he thinks is that every shop should have this saw, even commercials should display this saw. It might be higher priced as he states but it is much more worth it to reduce the risk of injury.

I think this claim is pretty accurate and I also think that this saw is safer and should be in the different shops as well. This was a great invention and if you know that the person who made the saw used it on his own finger in front of the whole world than it must be safe enough for anyone else to use.

    You say the author has made a claim and proved it, but the author has made perhaps a dozen claims, among them: that the saw prevents injuries, that its technology is the cause, that the technology reacts to fingers and hot dogs similarly, that fewer injuries saves money, that the saw is award-worthy, that every shop should have one, and that its benefits justify its costs.

    Your evaluation contains fewer errors than earlier posts, Tyson, but still is not rigorous to qualify as a academic response to an assignment.
