Like many of us i came up with an idea, and i decided to give it a go. I have had the technical drawings done, the worldwide patent is being applied for, and the prototypes have been made in China and i have tested these to ensure they work. You do not want to know how much this has cost already!!! But before i spend the last of my money, I NEED YOUR HELP.
I need to know what you think of this idea, please have a look at the link
and this will explain a little. Nothing has been made yet, so you cannot buy but i need to know your thoughts, to see if you think it is a good idea.
The item is called SAWSAFE and it is to offer your fingers protection as you align the blade when you start to saw a new cut as well as being able to use this to mark the line and any angle you wish to cut, with a hand saw or a jigsaw etc.
Please let me know what you think and if you want to see more pictures please let me know
THANK YOU for your help
as a carpenter im afraid i agree with stoneyboy, sure ive seen this sort of thing before anyway. will sell in b an q i supose tho, or on ebay, inexperienced woodworkers MAY benefit from it...??!!
if it was me id have made the overhang on the back edge longer to ensure the angled cut is square down the angle, especially as youve mentioned joistwork in the blurb and joists will be at least 2 inches..............just a thort!
also not impressed by the fact that the fellow in the picture is cutting the workpiece on his knee! does the device come with a KNEESAFE as well to stop him cutting his leg off?
also, have you given any thought into slippage prevention? a smooth piece of plastic on a smooth piece of timber and it may slide about all over the place, leading to the opposite outcome of that which it claims to give. just a thought...
