SawStop

This is frickin' cool!

This dude designed a table saw blade stopper that will stop a table saw blade cold before it can cut your finger off. This is assuming, of course, the operator is holding the board wrong.

The wild part of this show is that he actually tests it on his own finger on the show!!!

I've seen that on another site.

I call BS,.....did you see how slow he put his finger in there.....nobody cuts wood that slow..

And what about wet wood, that has been at a job site for 3 days,....you'll go through a dozen of those things,....

great idea,...but it won't work for construction wood workers
