    I saw that same article on the news looong ago, but never saw it applied to anything. Must have cost too much. I have also seen first hand (where I worked) a machine that could stop it's rotating blade faster than that, using modern programming and servo motors, and it did not cause damage to the machine itself.

    "You are never going to try this at home, right?"

    The very Idea, sir. As if...actually, I probably would seriously consider it. I've always wondered if the airbags in my car work, too.

    That's technology for you kids, it's amazing when it works. But when it doesn't then you have problems, still incredible that he has so much faith in it that he stuck his own finger in it.

    Some of the comments on the video on youtube brought up some solid arguments and maybe complete bullshit. (I did no further research so what i say may not be true.)

    But one person claimed he got a patent for the mechanism and he also tried to make it become a standard requirement on all machines. Which meant that since he has the rights to the idea, and if it was required that the machines needed to have it, he would have made big money off of that. Don't get me wrong, it is a really neat concept, and it appears to work.

    Another person made the point that they needed to have "wet salty fingers and hot dogs" to get it to work, and I don't know about you, but with a table saw, it's usually used to cut wood. Cutting wood makes dust. That dust gets EVERYWHERE. So if you need to have wet salty fingers for it to work well, good luck, as you'll have "saw-dust fingers", which he just set wood isn't very conductive.

    I don't know... I'm all for it though. If $60 is all it takes to repair it, rather than thousands of dollars for surgery, and if it was tweaked so you don't need wet salty fingers to trigger it, I'd get it.

    Nah those are solid arguments mate, in fact in most workshops people usually wear gloves with those kinds of machines, especially when you're dealing with wood and metals so you don't get splinters.

    Seems like a great idea but in practice would it work in the real world?

    I saw that on a show a few years back. Why it isn't a mandatory device for all table saws is mind boggling. Don't have your seat belt on & you'll get a ticket, at least they've been mandatory in vehicles for over 40 years now. Have cannabis oil or smoke medical mj to alleviate pain or help glaucoma, toss you in the joint so fast it'll make your head spin. Invent something that could sayve thousands of fingers & hands, meh, who cares. Tell those no goodnick's in D.C. to pass a good law for a change. I do wonder though if there would be anyway to apply this tech to a skil saw, seems like it would be too big. But maybe band saws & lathes?
