    Yeah i saw the thing a few years ago. I dont know if i like it though. Never mind the money aspect.

    A table saw has many dangers, the least of which i think is top your fingers.

    The bigger dange ri see is pieces getting kicked back. So some duba$$ has thins he thinks ha can do whatever he wants and then gets hurt in another way.

    Train the operator and it would never be a problem.

    The stop is just one part of the safety aspect of that peticular saw, I ran a saw for quite awhile all day long and I really had to concentrate, one little mistake could mean losing fingers or alot worse. Go look at the site some and you'll see it looks to be a pretty decent saw but just way too spendy for the average guy to own.
