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
