The Laserkerf as well as all other lasers that are legally on the market
are submitted to the FDA for certification. The Laserkerf emits a beam
of less than 5mw. No laser beam should be pointed into the eye
no matter what the power level.
Consider this one aspect of of using the Laserkerf verses the blade mounted
lasers. To activate the laser on a blade mounted laser the blade must
be spinning. It is natural because of the position of the handle, and
wanting to see the solid beam across the wood, to pull the blade down.
This causes the guard to open. As discussed in the cutting angles section
the wood must be aligned after the blade is spinning. So now the blade
is spinning, the guard is open and your hand is moving the wood to align
it for the cut. You decide how safe this practice is.
