Congratulations on "An Approach to Design" and "A Tale of Two Tables" (aw *36). These arc the most refreshing, entertaining articles I have seen in years. I found great enjoyment in learning how Mr. Lay port's designs evolve into a finished piece that matches the best use of the available materials with the specific needs of the intended use and user. I hope you will encourage this talented man to keep writing.

As an engineer and a hobby-level woodworker I was interested in the article on the new "quiet" saw blades (aw *34). So I put a Freud -fO-tooth blade to the test. Hie cuts were clean and sharp and the noise level was a hum. With magnification, the pores of the wood showed no smearing and would need little or no sanding. The results are amazing.

Best Saw Guard?
Re: "Aftermarket Tablcsaw Guards" (aw «36). The Biesemeyer and Delta Deluxe Uniguard |that you recommend 1 are fine for protecting the blade, but I question their ability to protect flesh and bone. The Brett-Guard. while requiring some effort to install, provides superior protection for users during virtually all table saw operations. It is the only guard used for training at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's Machine Guard Training Facility.
