Tommy Law I also like that the blade is not sacrificed when triggered. If its my finger triggering it I dont care if its the blade or not but seeing some vids where damp wood is setting off I would be a little frustrated at two things. 1 Having to get that anal about checking moisture levels of wood and 2 having to find another blade, buy new one or whatever. If I can be optimistic with a competitive safety system out now the prices of both may drop a little bit. I will definitely be looking into both since my past year has had too many close calls with tools.

Cherryville Chuck Sorry guys, today was a travel day for me, 13 hrs with a couple of stops to get back home to BC. I would have cut some of the discussion short otherwise. I know that people like to make fun of or criticize lawyers/politicians/car salesmen but it's like most things where a few bad apples have given everyone else in that industry a bad name and it may be true that those particular professions tend to have a disproportionate percentage of bad apples but making a blanket statement about everyone in those professions is uncalled for. Mike is a patent lawyer and I have no reason to believe that he falls in that percentage group so those comments were disrespectful in this instance. Let's keep it about Bosch or Sawstop as it relates to the same general technology or the issues around the use of the technolgy.

The Europeans already have Stick. It is the short fence that terminates before the back edge of the blade.

vindaloo Yep, come to rely on the tech and become complacent then the tech fails (see the number of recalls to cars lately) and bye-bye digits.

It's a bit like anti lock brakes. Had them on one car, and when I needed them they failed. Too late to find out and crunched front end.

Think I'll rely on old faithful (my brain) and my take on it, any spinning bit or blade is out to get me so use push blocks/sticks and all HSE advised gear.

I'm sure that there has to be a law...emotional distress, deprivation of resources, or a civil rights violation depriving me of the pursuit of happiness.
