The World's Safest Table Saw

Every year, over 60,000 people are injured, often severely, by table saws. To prevent these injuries, SawStop has developed a revolutionary table saw that virtually eliminates the risk of losing a finger. To see what happens when the blade hits a simulated finger (a hot dog), push play or see this link [youtube].

I actually had a friend in high school lose two fingers on a table saw during shop class, it's a shame they didn't sell something like this back then.

macduff agrees with some of saw stop's technology, macduff's simple technology uses existing table saws, large or small but has the fence fixed or in a stationary position on a sliding support platform that transverses the width of existing tables to give the width of cut, the fence will not flex or deviate and is always parallel to the blade, safety devices are all placed up front of the blade, not behind the blade!!!! are all automatic in width and height of material, will automatically hold pressure down and against the fixed fence, with the pawls in constant contact with the material at any adjustable position along the length of the fixed fence. many designs to choose from to suit the individual operation all on a work table 50 * 30 ins. slainte mhath macduff

well, this saw was obviously invented because of retards who can't think of that the saw can cut of your finger if you put it directly in front of the blade and start cutting. and remember:
use goggles, gloves to prevent debris in your hands, no lose or hanging clothes, tie up your hair, use a bandana or similar f you feel like, and hold on the 'sides' of the piecde your cutting, so you would have distance to the blade. I'm at a mechanical line, so I know this...

Um, yeah...I learned pretty quick not to set the blade so high on a table saw. Fingers cut off can be avoided with appropriate safety measures and practices. Idiots.

“A gizmo like this could give kids in shop class false confidence.”

I dunno, if my finger were nicked like that hot dog was, I think that would be enough to make me very careful. Ouch!

Sure, but you could still drill the kids in safety: just don't tell them it's a safety saw and you'll always have it as a fallback.
