Each year, more than 67,000 woodworkers and DIYers have an accident on their tablesaws. In addressing the dangers of these tools, a company called SawStop created a tablesaw that seizes the blade if it comes in contact with your fingers.
This saw has been a game-changer in shop safety. But how reliable is its safety mechanism? Responding to common critical questions online about the saw, Jonathan Katz-Moses did some testing and recording using super slo-mo photography (19,000 FPS HD). The results are amazing, even when using a heavy, multi-blade dado stack.
