My fingers are intact and functional. I figured the Sawstop system would be a great place to start considering how essential a table saw is for many woodworkers.
The video is quite convincing for me. The kinetic energy in a spinning sawblade is considerable. Dead stop in 10ms is impressive.
I am consulting on a large estate liquidation that includes a rather well equipped cabinet/woodworking shop. The pictured blade was on top of a 3HP Sawstop that was BURIED under the flotsam and jetsam of too much stuff and not enough working space.
There are some drawbacks to this saw but for the average woodworker it is tough to beat. My neighbor has a 3 horse and it has handled 1000ft+/- of varied hardwoods of mine that we have ripped with no issues. The safety is a huge factor for repetitive tasks like mindless ripping.
But it will kickback like any other saw.
