The Sawstop: Put Your Finger Where Your Mouth Is

The Sawstop: Put Your Finger Where Your Mouth Is

Does that title make sense? Maybe put you money where your finger is? Anyways, woodworking is a bit of a hobby over here at unplggd and with that comes power tools and sharp, spinning discs of steel mounted vertically in a table top. While we have been aware of the saw stop for a while, a piece of technology that drops a spinning blade out of the way if you accidentally touch it with your finger, and have seen successful demos with hot dogs, never have we seen a real person with a real finger get in the way of the saw blade. Until now....

There is really not much to say here, you just have to watch the video. Amazing stuff. In case your strapped for time, around the 4 minute mark is where the action is.
