Re: Tools: New Safe Table Saw
In Response To: Re: Tools: New Safe Table Saw ()

I am not totally sold on the Sawstop or Bosch Reaxx idea. To me they give a false sense of security. How do you know if the units are working properly until your finger touches the blade. Nothing I have read states if there is a daily check to confirm the sensor or the firing circuits are functioning properly. I worked in aircraft armament for several years and we did functional checks regularly to see if everything was working to energize the impluse cart when it was needed. I know they state the system does a self check every time it is turned on. But I would rather see a tester that hooks to the leads to the cartridge and a test procedure confirm the unit is working properly.
