That is the one tool I own that no one is allowed to touch. Watched a neighbor try to put his finger back on years ago after running it through his table saw.
Used it Friday......

That dude has bigger nads than I, but those saws are some amazing machines!
If it was in my tool budget, I'd have one in my shop.

That was weird just watching. Grew up terrified of saws, seeing my grandfather's half thumbs and fingers. I've been hurt by one too from a kickback. Don't see what he accomplished doing that.

Kick back is for making sure you're paying attention. Because there's no lesson to be learned the 2nd time a foot long piece of 2x4 hits ya in the nuts.

I got a nice piercing of my forearm by a foot long cedar spear that I had to pull though. Could have hit me worse places.

Partially amputating a digit cost me about $1,500 out of pocket with good insurance plus about two weeks off work. Not sure how much that saw costs.

From their website, looking like $1299 MSRP for the job site version.

Sitting on my best friend in colleges front porch in Colfax one day saw a table saw fly out the shop door and his dad come out telling his mother to take him to the ER to reattach his thumb!! No way I would test a saw stop with flesh!!!

Stuck the end of my thumb in one onetime. Late at night and tired and I was watching where the top of the blade came out of the wood not the closest part to me. Leather glove didn't stop the blade lol.

Seen videos of them with hot dogs. It would be nice to have, but I use my saw a couple of times a year and couldn't justify it. Dang sure wouldn't be testing it by hand. I saw what happened to my cousin after he lost a fight with one.

From a kickback about a year ago. Woodshop in high school taught me to stand to the side to keep from getting hit in the face, gut or nads.

Always stand to the side to keep from getting the head, gut or mass. This was from a kickback about a year ago.

First day of a new job, turns out the fence on the table saw shifted around quite a bit if you pushed against it a certian way. Was ripping a 4x8 sheet of plywood. Fence moved, momentum involved. Lost a finger tip and nail. I sat there for 5 minutes just not believing what happened. I was so lucky. Fixed the fence immediately.

I only wish this additional feature didn’t increase the cost so much. Small price to pay I know, but when I was looking a Bosch saw with and without the Reaxx feature, the difference was $500 vs $2200. I just couldn’t do it and I hope to never regret that decision.

To avoid kickbacks put the blade on backwards. Then have your "buddy"on the other side. Be sure to video!!!

It's not in my nature to shy away from any machine, I feel like I can run about anything....but there's not a tool on earth that gets my un divided attention like the table saw, I will not use it if I can do the job with something else.

SawStop patents run out around 2020 or 2021. Then the market will be flooded and the technology will get even better.

The Reaxx was a better tech but infringed on SawStop because of some completely unreasonable patent was obtained. Something like a “blade retraction” patent... so any technology, no matter the mechanism or trigger, that retracted the blade for safety infringed. Very broad and expansive patent.

Soon, all woodworkers will be better off and lost fingers will sharply decline.

I bet he planned to touch the blade just slightly and stop regardless of what the blade did. We never would have seen the video, if the blade had not retracted. Keep your saws clean and maintained. Pay attention!!!

Skil saw is also bad if'n you somehow cut the power cord while ripping a 2x4.
Saw a guy do it once and I think that's where break dancing originated. Sparks wuz flying out his nose. He did get loose from it and survived.
