Impressive and ingenious cut protection system for table saws avoiding injuries to the worker.

SAWSTOP cut protectionBy means of a detection system of human body electric conductivity, it detects that a part of the body (fingers or a hand) is going to touch the disc and activates a mechanism stopping and hiding the disc in fractions of a second. Even the designer dares to touch the disc while spinning.

The only disadvantage is that this is a “destructive” protection (like an airbag) and once the system acts, the saw can only work again by replacing the damaged items.
