Saw Stop

If you have ever worked in a woodshop then you understand the importance of safety. Saw Stop is a new table saw that is AMAZING when it comes to safety. Check out the video...

Neat idea, I think I have seen it before somewhere... That brake mechanism looks like it would probably be hell on your blades... Then again, I guess $40 for a new (good) blade is better than rockin' a permanent shocker all the time...

So I am the only person who would stick my finger in it just to freak people out?

Yeah a $40 blade and the a new clutch $70... still way better! And the table saw itself is about $800 more than many others. But still WAY better for a shop or biz.

seems to me like a great idea to improve safety. $40 blades are DEFINATELY cheaper than those visits to the ER to get your fingers/hand reattached to your body and the rehab, and all that crap.

Now I just wonder how much it will make it to the shops, that are too cheap (I mean cost conscience) to purchase them...at $2,799.00, I think it's worth the cost to replace what you have...

Yeah like the video said... it cost alot more not to have it.

I'm sure just the ER visit for a chopped off finger will cost you more than that. And its not just a safety device its also a nice saw!

The owner/managers that care about their employees 'may' buy them, but those worried about their bonuses (I mean their bottom line) probably will not buy them anytime soon.

But its like insurance... your bottom line will go to hell if you have a guy loose a few fingers or more.
