This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I like competition. And undamaged saw blades.

Yep, I agree with Phillip. I wonder how the cost of a tripped mechanism compares?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I couldn't find a video of the saw in action, I guess it is still a secret.
Wonder what the rice will be?

Now that Doug is worth following, it's the most interesting concept that I've come across. The Bosch one is infinitely more desirable than the original "Saw-Stop" which as we all know can operate with damp wood which makes that attempted cut a very expensive one.

I like the fact that it can be used on my existing saw, and then transferred to another if I ever upgrade.

I have followed them for a few years, hopefully they will eventually get to market.

The technology appears much better than SawStop and I like Bosch products but I still don't see the need - keep your fingers away from the blade or any place they don't belong! After well over 50 years of this I'm still attached to mine because I turn my brain on before I turn a tool on. Not to say I don't do stupid things but not usually when safety is critical.

"After 25 instances of the saw deploying the safety system there is a mandatory maintenance requirement where you need to bring the Bosch ReaXX Table Saw into an authorized service center for examination."

If an owner has had 25 incidences, they should confiscate his saw!
