Check out this incredible saw!!!


Recommended Posts

As I understand it, the mechanism puts a small amout of electricity on the blade, when it hits something that'll draw the charge (hot dog, fingers, and the like) it trips the brake - embedding the blade into the brake. The blade and brake then need to be replaced.

The saws start at around $4500 (my brother in law is "now" looking into getting one).

I thought I'd heard that someone had a version that could be retrofitted onto any tablesaw?

How does it differentiate between a piece of flesh and a soaking wet piece of fir?

I've had two crew members run their thumbs through tablesaws over the years. It's a most inconvenient process.
