Saw stop has been the subject of much discussion around these parts. It is
also the subject of an article in the latest Fine Woodworking magazine. The
video on the page you've linked to is impressive. There is no doubt that
the device works. I doubt if it will ever become law, however.
I read about this in Tools of the Trade about a year ago. The
inventor (Steve Gass) actually put his own finger into a saw blade
to prove its effectiveness. Said he only got a scratch.
I have many times looked at my TS blade while it was running and
thought about that. That is faith in your equipment.
I have never been cut by a table saw. If I could use the
technology, I think I would rather have it on my miter saw. I have
my hands much closer to the blade on that than anything else.
Another thing to think about: What if you needed to rip some ball
park franks sometime? Could you disable it?
Dont laugh to much, but i used my band saw to cut up all the sugar pumpkins
SWMBO and I grew into small pieces to make fresh pumpkin pies this year.
Pumpkins are difficult to cut up, even with a large sharp knife, band saw
took minutes, and a few minutes afterward to clean the goop off the blade
and table! --dave
