Same way your smartphone does, I think. Passes a current through the blade, wet meat disrupts it.

The tech's been around ~10 years or so.

windowless plane concept

:lol:

We'll see seatless planes before we see windowless planes.

They'll pile the customers like a bundle of sticks and then strap all of the passengers together with twine when it fits to the top.

I think the idea behind windowless is that they can make the plane lighter. The structure to support window openings is not insignificant.
Yeah, windows completely destroy any chance of the skin taking any significant load. Commercial aircraft would be lighter and stronger without windows in the passenger compartment.

I thought Harry Potter stabbed the tooth thru it there.
That nugget sold for $400K or about $4.6K per troy ounce. That's a nice premium over the current price for bullion at $1.2K per troy ounce.

They reviewed the tech in Family Handyman magazine. Works as promised, but it can also false trip in certain types of material, and if you accidentally apply side pressure to the blade. You have to buy a new brake cartridge and blade, which will cost $150-200 per trip event. Still cheaper than getting your finger chopped off. The saws with them on are $1200-1500 IIRC.

The contractor saws are. The cabinet saw runs about $3000, but it's pretty quality-competitive in that price range. Both were out of my range regardless.

I got a B&D cordless that doesn't work like that, but it has a blade brake that stops it pretty instantly when you release the trigger.

I've also got a Skill 120V saw. when you let go of it, it just spins on and on.

Interesting interactive graphic showing the popularity in sales of various Halloween costumes over the past 5 years, though technically shouldn't they have had, say, "devil" trail off the bottom for both 2010 and 2013 since apparently it dropped out of the top 13--heh--costumes for each of those years?

Yup.

I'm going to hazard a guess as to the problem. Stress corrosion cracking of one or more parts in an old engine. Most high strength steels used are susceptible to chloride attack.
