After cutting his finger on his shop table saw, Matthias Wandel, woodworker, engineer, inventor of the PantoRouter, and YouTube extraordinaire, worked out a pretty clever solution.
While reaching over to turn off the dust collector, Wandel nipped his finger on the saw blade. So he relocated the dust collector switch.
Wandel is a prominent YouTube woodworker. He's also inventor of the PantoRouter, a 2016 IWF Challengers award semi-finalist.
The PantoRouter allows clients to create templates of their own designs for functional and attractive joinery or creative designs. There’s no other tool or jig for woodworkers available today with the straightforward simplicity and the open-source potential to create truly unique and functional joinery, patterns and designs.
He's also created a unique machine that sets up dominoes in uniform rows. The machine works by pushing a magazine full of dominoes forward along the table while a slider pushes them out one at a time as the machine slowly drives along.
