    Carbon tape heated steering wheel

    Yes...and all of those SlipRing contacts are dedicated...are you tapping off of the Horn Contacts...? If so....that was a *critical* safety factor that you should have mentioned.

    *Seriously*? That is your build...? I'm sorry...but I can see *several* serious safety issues immediately. First: How are you with the fact that the Steering Wheel turns...but the Column (etc) doesn't? Either you have a wire hanging down around your feet (dangerous from a Driving Safety perspective, tangling up your feet)...or you have loosely-wrapped around the Steering Column (Dangerous rom an Electrical perspective...since there is no way to guarantee that the "loose" cord will not get pinched/cut/broken...and then you have Battery power applied to the Metal parts of the car (I should point out here that the "convenient" picture shows a hole in the middle of the Steering wheel...that's where the Bolt and securing nut goes through...there is no convenient axial hol...see more »*Seriously*?

I'm sorry if it's not "nice"...this is a Safety* issue.

    I know you're "wedded" to your Table Saw brand (we all are *G*)...but I think that your success has more to do with the *blade* than with the *saw* itself.Can you give specs on both? (i.e. 10", 12", Motor size, Belt Drive/gear drive/Direct Drive....and brand of the Blade, Carbide/Tungsten tipped, TPI?Otherwise, *awesome* idea...and well-executed.
