Re: Blade brake inventor aims to compete with SawStop

Well that's pretty cool. I think it will be interesting to see a final product and further details how it works. If it works by locking the motor we should see a durability test on the saw's linkage to determine if the device damages the the saw's drive linkage and/or defeats the stopping ability of the device if the linkage fails especially on higher powered saws that use drive belts. The web site shows the device mounted on a Unisaw with increased stopping time over the video claims above so I suppose it is working against a lot more spinning mass. At any rate if the device ever makes it to market I will investigate it further since it could be a retro fit to my 1990s Unisaw. I already use a Unigaurd so working with the gaurd has become second nature to me.
