Apparently SawStop does the job. However, good sense and proper precautions also do the job. I began using a table saw about 1967 and today after 50 years I still have all of my fingers. The use of proper jigs and fixtures to handle unusual cutting situations, well designed push sticks, and the ingrained use of exaggerated hand motions to be sure the hands are clear of the blade at all times have served me well.

On the other hand, if you are a shop beer drinker, an alcoholic, or just generally incompetent, the Saw Stop is for you! : )

...or don’t have 50 years experience and only get to spent 10 hours at most in the shop per week, or need your fingers for you day job with a keyboard.

You guys remind me of life long smokers that haven’t gotten cancer yet.
