OMG... That guy has balls... GREAT invention.
I cut my thumb nearly in half on one back in 93.. Dull blade, forcing a piece of wood through
After it happened, I was amazed to find out how many people have done the same.

Great invention....... but is it me or when they slowed the video down didn't it show his finger along side the blade as well as the blade continue cutting beyond his finger tip?

While in college I had a part time job in a crafts shop on campus. Came in one morning to find a lot of commotion. Seems that the night before a grad student had shoved his hand through the 5 hp Delta table saw... with a 1/2" stack of dado blades no less! I was the lucky one who got to clean up the mess. I always had a healthy respect for table saws before, but after that, it's REAL healthy. Took his thumb and most of 2 other fingers.

]If you would've been paying attention as opposed to managing your harem that would not have happened.

BTW we are frying some fish over at the sand bar this weekend on Sunday drop by for a beer and some fish if you want.

Having worked in woodshops for years, having a tablesaw in my garage, that I just used today. I can deffinately appreciate that invention. Worked in cabinet shops for years, saw many people missing digits or part of. Would buy it if it becomes available

It has been around for at least 10 years. Adds about 3k to the price of a saw

Our local high school has one and a student tested it about two months ago, it worked.

Funny you should say that.. It happened at the X's house in Pocono mountains PA, there were a whole gaggle of 'em up for my B-day and all of them were out doing the 'Outlets' I should have went with'em! I had to drive my dumbazz to the E-room myself in a stickshift car after I dug it out of the snow, they had my Jimmy. They came home to; Who spilled tomato sauce all over the place? Of course they figure it out and come to the E-room, I'm standing in a long line for x-ray (with all the broken skiers) the X has to see it the wound.. Well okay... a 1/2 second later they were pickin her off the floor

I agree, but I was thinking; Hell, I could put the same thumb I cut back into the blade and wouldn't feel a thing now

I don't know about ten years but I know they started advertising heavily within the last couple of years. I just read recently in a wood working magazine that Sawstop is now selling more saws in the US than any other mfg.

It also said they reported saving about 600 people from major problems due to triggering of the mechanism.

The local trade school around here PTEC has a large woodworking shop and their table saw has this on it. Don't know if its been used before but it is an incredible invention.

YES, been there, I was teaching a wood working class in Ft lauderdale in 1969 at the airport barracks(middle school), and was ripping some wood for the students to use, any way they were coming in the door, and the wood was about to kick back at them, table saw was near the door, I tried to grab the wood to keep it from hitting them, which I did, but also stuck my thumb in the blade and you all know what happened next. Yes, I was doing it with out that dumb anti kick back device that was a pain to use or I did not bother to put it on, cannot remember. Thumb has never been right since.
