The technology stops the blade of a table saw the instant a non-wood item (ie human finger) comes in contact with it. You have to look at the video, simply amazing!

No matter how much I would trust the technology I would never believe that it could stop a table saw moving at a million miles an hour in the fraction of a second, to the point of barely nicking the skin. I've watch the video a few times and it still amazes me that it works.

WOW! :eek:

I kept watching them over and over and over again...the table saw is the one that fascinates me the most because the blade just "disappears" under the table lightning fast! That's pretty cool and how did you find that btw?

In the videos, the saw blade is rotating at 4000 rpm. The blade is stopped in less than 5 milliseconds. It can make the difference between needing a Band-Aid or a hand surgeon.

holy crap, no kidding!

man, no more shop teachers with only 9 fingers!
