It is electrical. I think when you complete the circut by inserting something conductive, like your finger or a.....hot dog between the table and the blade, it activates a brake Notice how they say it works on any non-conductive material.

I wonder if I can retro fit it onto my 1938 craftsman 10" table saw. I'm going to ask about a "kit".That could save a few dollars.

I see you can deactivate it and get a little better performance out of the "saw" part of the unit, for those hammer runs ripping through 150 year old redwood heart lumber or cast iron sheet. There is always a safety trade off for performance.

I saw the price. 2700.00 plus another 400. for a fence and table extension. The single use brake cartridges are 69.00 each. (I would have to order spares from the git go)

It is a really good idea. That is the kind of thing that could be adapted to alot of spinning machinery like planers, metal working machinery. I think it would be good to have in a school woodshop. (A friend of mine picked up the nickname "stubs" after an incident with a planer.)
later, mikey

Thats pretty cool! I doubt the saw its self is any better than the powermatic but I love the safety feature. I work around saws, planers, jointer's, routers and all that good stuff day in and day out. I feel like its just a matter of time before I get a nick name like nubby or stub's or something like that.

I saw the info about this about 4 months back. Told my leadman at the window and door company I work for about it and he said that it was to expensive to be considered for our type of industrial use. WTC is up with that??? I figure my fingers are worth at least $5,000 each. BTW, I still have all of my digits. After 9 years, I've learned 2 things.

1. Be careful, very careful, when using any power tool capable of removing fingers.

2. If possible, use any means to protect yourself from dangerous situations.



In a while, Chet.

Mike, I saw in the Q&A that it can NOT be retro fit and that they sell no kit to do it.

This is very impressive and my guess is over time it will become much cheaper and will work its way into even the cheapest of table saws - at least I would hope so. I would also hope that the technology can be adapted to radial arm saws.

Some years back a friend of mine in Horicon, WI totally cut off his arm just above the wrist with a radial arm. He was alone working in his basement and had the presence of mind to immediately get a tourniquet applied, call 911, and put his severed limb on ice in his freezer. He remained alert and mobile the entire time and the Flight for Life chopper landed at the high school softball field across the street and flew him out to Madison where not only did they save his life, they re-attached his hand.

Although there is no hope that he will ever be able to develop any physical use of the hand it does look quite natural and you would not realize if you saw him today that the accident had even occurred. Pretty heroic medical response. But this new saw technology could have probably prevented that accident completely.

HOLY CRAP !
I got chills Just reading that!

what kills me is some bubba will come along & finger out how to jamb a piece of wood in there so the safety thing don' t work anymore!


I had a buddy that lost his Pinky finger from a table saw & he would act like he has his entire finger up his nose looking for that elusive booger{too funny the look on peoples faces}

good Ole beer can Dave
RIP
Well I gotta go to poncho's house for dinner

I have heard of more accidents happening on radial arms than any other stationary tool. If you ask me they are out dated and dangerous! Sliding miter saws are much safer to use and more portable and practical

I got one for you guys, from the "What the Heck was he thinking?" files...

21 year old guy. Watches my carpenter run a 12" chop saw. The Carpenter is left handed. He is right handed(Clue). I was walking out into the shop just as I see whats about to go down. I yell STOP!!! DON'T MOVE. He looks at me as though I am a lunatic. I unplug the saw, then proceed to tell him to "Dry cut" it(No power). As he sweeps the saw down, it touches his arm. The look of horror on his face was priceless. He had seen the carpenter holding the stock on the RIGHT side, throttling the trigger with his left hand. This guy, being right handed still held the stock on the right side, but WITH HIS LEFT HAND, using the right hand to thottle the trigger. Putting his left arm under the blade!

Same guy 1 week later...I get paged to come to the shop by one of my caprenters. He pulls me aside and asks me to watch this guy. He has a GREASEGUN out, trying to find a grease fitting on a circular saw. Been looking for almost 10 minutes. Why the greasegun?? The saw wouldn't work, and he was told it needed grease! OK, so why did the guys pick on him? Maybe because he cut the plug end off the cord, and couldn't figure why it sparked and then stopped??

His last day.. I liked the kid, thought there MAY be SOME potential in America's youth. Stupid as a stone, but was there on time. He's on a ladder changing flourescent light bulbs in the office. He has a box of 20 bulbs with him. One light apparently has a bad ballast. He is changing bulbs for a little while, had done mayb 7-8 lights. He gets to this fixture with a bad ballast. He changes the bulbs a GOOD 6-7 times, with no change in results. (Here's your sign...) One of the estimators walk by, and asks if he is using (2)Lefts or (2) right bulbs. Of course the estimator walks into my office, laughing hysterically, and tells me whats going on. I walk out, and the guys asks me how to tell the difference, because of the success of how he re-bulbed other fixtures. I can't help myself. I told him that the left inner and right outer were the same, and the right inner and left outer were the same, and walked away. He starts taking the last light apart, and using the bulbs to put in the fixture with the bad ballast. Of course, it still won't work. He starts trashing the good bulbs. Why?? Well, the secretary told him they were one time use bulbs..... After he was clued in, he came in my office and told me he decided that he should maybe go back to old job delivering pizzas.


So why did I tell you these long winded stories on this thread?? To prove a point that there are stupid people out there that need protecting. Protecting,,, like an idiot proof saw!

BTW..Those stories are ABSOLUTELY TRUE.

Beenaway2long, That guy is an accident waiting to happen. I just hope if he goes down he do't take noone with him.
He is why they have office jobs. No offense to any office workers. Its just that after 35 years in heavy construction I have seen these guys come and hopefully realize they are in over thier head before they lose there head.

Love that saw, where are the headers?

saw

The inventor of this saw system tried to sell it to most of the major
saw manufacturers- none were interested so he strarted his own company
to make and sell it- so don't expect to see it come on lower priced
saws any time soon. It is like the guy welding with a polyester pants-
he might get away with it for a while but sooner or later he will find out
the safety instructions can be in 24 piont type- stupid is as stupid does.
