In a high school shop I can imagine the "bad boy" touching the edge of the blade, thereby triggering the Sawstop and using up a cartridge and a blade just to disrupt the class.

wet wood. A couple of those a week and the entire shop program will again learn the use of a hand saw as the shop budgets won't buy many cartidges and blades.

Just need a bit of rewiring with a randomized timer AND a large sign which reads:
"USE EXTREME CAUTION! This SawStop saw is equipped with an intermittent safety device which has the safety feature fully enabled 90% of the time. Do you feel lucky?"

Won't stop him. You don't have to touch the teeth to trigger the cartridge. Touch anywhere on the blade and it goes. And if he touches it and it _doesn't_ go then it's lawyer city. Understand, the objective is not to see if the stop works, it's to disrupt the class.

CAUTION: the parents of any student triggering the safety mechanism will be charged the cost of the replacement cartridge plus labor. This will be approximately $200.00.
