The Sawstop is not the end all solution to safety. Every piece of technology has a failure rate. It is simply a matter of time before there is a failure and a Sawstop user is seriously injured or maimed. The great thing from a product liability lawyers perspective is that Sawstop through their advertising, demos, actions along with Gass's comments related to this suit have set themselves up for a whopping suit down the road when that one brake that had some kind of defect fails to engage and a Sawstop user loses a finger. The more of brakes on the market coupled with time guarantees a failure sometime. Plus people keep saws for a long time. What happens when we find out that some part of the technology degrades with time? I can just envision the comments from Sawstop's legal staff now.
