I just can't justify spending that much money to replace my perfectly working saw. Its the same, as I would not go and buy a new saw just to have a riving knife, which is much better and safer, than my standard spliter.

Darrin this is the thought by many out there. That is why this Whirlwind Tool Patents Pending Saw Safety Technology has the best upside. But it too is being challenged in courts and the founder has no funds to push on any more.

How sad it is that we must protect ourselves from ourselves these days. Who knows maybe in the near future all machines will have some sort of flesh detecting device on it or we can just get robots to program and do the work. We are pretty close there so there is hope.

John that one says on it's website it stops the blade in 1/8 of a second. My quick and dirty math has a blade turning over 8+ times from the moment it activates until the blade stops. If that is true there will be a lot of damage to the unfortunate bit of us that set off the brake. Now I realize his equipment and technology is not fully developed or the website number may be wrong but 8+ rotations wouldn't do much good would it?

Darrin I was fine with my previous saw as it was solid enough to handle a 10" dado set at full depth but when Marla came into my life and wanted to work in the shop I wanted to make sure she didn't have any accidents while she was working. Ladies don't get discounts at the manicurist if they have less than 10 fingers.

I know it has been a few months since this thread was in full swing but I saw (no pun intended) in a Rona flyer today (a Canadian Borg store) that the new Bosch REAXX is available at $1999.00. Not a lot of info in the description except that it is 15 A, 4 HP, 3650 RPM. Sounds like they are using vacuum cleaner designers to write the specifications for the advertising. ;) For a comparison, the SawStop jobsite saw at Lee Valley is $1716.00.

Those are Canadian dollars for those that didn't notice my location. ;)
