Mike I think that anyone who wanted to use this should not be discouraged from doing that, Me I would never use anything like this, I doubt that it would save a finger anyway, at what point does it kick in? Does it kick in when your finger is say a CM away, every accident that I have ever seen happened very fast, there was no a slow build up where the hand was inched forward a bit more and then a bit more so that when it was just a cm away then the device could kick in, me I would never believe that this could 100% stop the saw blade from cutting off your finger when your finger is a cm away and moving in fast, this is a fake solution and there is no solution better than keeping your eyes open and your fingers away from any fast moving cutter and I personally would not want to ever think that, "Its OK Neville to get close to the saw as the saw stop will save me'. The proper solution is to operate the saw, or the router, or the angle grinder, or the lawn mower, or the chain saw, properly, how do you stop yourself from cutting your leg off with the chain saw? You do that by showing dangerous tools respect, and me I would never want anything between me and any tool, I plan to keep my eyes open and use good trade practice and I would say to anyone who thought that the saw was so dangerous that they needed this, to go out and buy a nice pocket knife and take up whittling. You know when cars were first invented then anyone who owned one had to pay a person to walk along in front of it ringing a bell and waving a flag, and that never did work in regard to stopping anyone from walking under it wheels, what worked was to educate people to keep there eyes open and every time that they do then they don't get run over.
