There is no amount of technology that can prevent a stupid or negligent person from causing harm. I understand that some accidents are just that, accidents. However, the vast majority of injuries are cause by carelessness and not respecting the tool you are using. I think it would be great if I could have purchased my last table saw for the same $1,200 I paid and gotten a safety feature like the blade brake....it doesn't exit. Technology cost money. If the choice is a great table saw for $1,200 without a brake or one for $2,400 with one, I will always take the $1,200 and be careful. Has anyone ever heard the term... guns don't kill people, people do. I've haven't cut anything off in 30 years and I haven't shot myself or anyone else. Maybe our current government (or idiot lawyers who will fight for every unjust cause) have the money to buy everything....I don't. Good businesses suffer from this kind or malicious, greedy litigation. I like Saw Stop, hate this decision.
