I doubt he sold in fear of a lawsuit. He would not be able to even go to market if he did not have some sort of liability insurance. I’m sure it’s very expensive but he would be covered. He’s an attorney, he would have made sure his bases are covered.

I seriously considered a Sawstop but my needs were better met with a format table saw. It has it’s own safety features in that the hands go nowhere near the blade and you are off to the side of the blade in event of kickback.

I have my reservations about his methods of trying to get a law passed and that does turn me off, but in the end, it is a safer product. It’s like dust collection. There’s a cost vs safety ratio that everyone has to consider for themselves.
