I have recently come across the coolest new technology called Sawstop. Basically, it stops the blade of a saw within 5 milleseconds after detecting the touch of a finger. It will be a difference between needing a bandaid or a hospital visit. It will cost between $50-$100 per saw to implement. I think it is amazing and would like to see it or something like it in Ridgid saws. You can find it at www.sawstop.com. I think most people would be willing to pay the extra cost for the safety. Maybe it could be an option if Ridgid is concerned that some would be unwilling to put up the extra cost.
No announcement yet.
