this guy stands behind his product
 
I've seen this saw before in videos but I've never seen anyone actually use their own finger to test it.

Yeah but he sort of put it to the side. I wonder how many false alarms there would be with wet wood. There was another post about this also. http://www.thehulltruth.com/dockside...table-saw.html

Hey Ken, maybe you should start testing props that way :grin::grin:

Well if those guys do it with a steak I can't see wet wood being a problem. ~ ;?

The steak was without the saw stop device. The hot dog was with. Since it has to be replaced when it is set off it could get expensive if it goes off when it should not.

Correct you are sir, my error.

You know I was thinking about the guy's product and ALL THAT FORCE to stop a blade that quickly. I watched the video again and paid particular attention to the saw blade, man that's a LOT of flex that blade is subjected to when it stops dead in itís tracks! :o:o:o I wonder how well the armature holds up to all that stopping force? :roll;? I'd wager to say "many" cheaper saws wouldn't stand up to that force; theyíd need replacing because of armature damage/ run out.

Also, the video doesnít make any mention of the electric motor taking a SERIOUS hit, power is on but the blade isnít turning = one smoking motor in no time! :roll But hey, maybe dropping 4k on a saw and saw blade is cheaper than losing a part of oneís finger/ thumb.

Next thing that isnít talked about in the video, is how is the thing installed? Does one have to remove the table of the saw to install the unit and then re-setup the top to blade and the fence to the blade??? ;? If any of you are as particular as I am, it takes Hours to get things setup to within a thou. :(

And by the look of things, I donít think one could run a dado blade setup with the unit installed? :roll;?

I'd be more than willing to completely scrap the best saw made in order to save cutting off a digit or two, or three, or four of mine....

The replacement cartridge is about $75. It takes 20-30 minutes to install (the guys doing the show demos can do it faster, but they are doing it more frequently than the average woodworker). You just remove the insert around the blade to get it out.

Garrett, you are probably right that you can't use it with a dado blade (I am not sure, but it stand to reason).

The saw is considered by many on woodworking forums to be a very good say on its own merits without regard to the blade-stopping feature. I suspect that the saw will take the hits from stopping a few times. I would say that a person should stop using a table saw if they hit their fingers with the blade more than once (or maybe twice).

I think any significant table saw injury (finger or two cut off) will cost a person much more than $4K in medical bills, lost job time, pain and suffering, nagging from the wife, etc.
