    Very nice, Rick! Very simple to set up yet significantly increases the safety factor in using the tool. Definitely on my project list.

    The original idea came from R.J. DeCristoforo of old Popular Science days. He wrote a book on hand power tool attachments. Although he worked in wood, the ideas easily translate to metal.
