ProTool Reviews and The WoodWhisperer both have some great articles about SawStop, a new rival flesh detecting table saw safety system, and what the Consumer Product Safety Commission can do to help lesson table saw injuries. It turns out that SawStop as a brand was not the first choice for Stephen Gass, the inventor of the table saw braking system.

It turns out that there are a couple options. One is from Maxus Tools, and the other is from Ridgid.
