    When I worked as a cabinet maker the shop brought in an improvement to the table saw that would automatically stop it when flesh hit the blade. If you fed a hotdog wiener into it...it would stop instantly!
    Great invention but I wouldn't feed my finger into it to test it, or my weeny!

    Surprised it's tweezers instead of a fork.

    I like those tweezers. They would have been handy in the 60's and 70's if you just happened to drop a hit of windowpane into an electrical outlet.

    I'm waiting for someone to post that Old Deaf Roadie's OP is fake. A hoax. I'm skeptical that way.

    I'll bet that ad was made by the same agency that made the pic of the girl holding the soldering iron down near the tip, like a pencil...:lol:

    Compare the size of the hand to the size of the outlet. Looks like a rookie photoshop effort.
