  No never tried the hot dog trick, I went with my finger.  Well, with 
my old saw after 35 years of no accidents, I sliced my finger with my 
table saw, nothing too serious, its still there.  But I did get a little 
scared and went and got a Sawstop and replaced my Unisaw, my wife 
figured as I get older, I may get a little more forgetful and besides my 
Unisaw was a 1.75HP model, so it was time to upgrade to 3HP anyway :)
