SawStop HotDog video

During the first session of every Basic Woodworking class I teach, we thoroughly discuss using a tablesaw. We talk about buying one, assembling it, setting it up, calibrating it, and finally, proper methods for cutting and ripping wood.

But one of the things I tend to forget is that not everyone is familiar with a SawStop Tablesaw. The flesh-detection technology utilized by this saw is nothing short of amazing. Here it their famous video showing what the saw will do if it comes into contact with a "finger" - it's awesome.

Here is another SawStop video, much more interesting.

So what to you think - would you have the courage to test your invention in that way?
