A one-time-use item that MAY save my finger if I'm too stupid to keep it way from the spinning blade? Not a chance, even at just $60! Freeze frame it at 36 -37 & 41-42 second and notice the blade has been air brushed out. It doesn't work unless you freeze your soaking wet hand first (2:12 - 2:14). Not something I typically do before using my table saw. Yet another item that promises what it cannot deliver! Snake oil at its best!

I had the TV on just last week during the daytime and one of those super-duper high powered crooks - I mean LAWYER commercials came on with the video of this blade stop using a hot dog. It did cut into the hotdog but not all the way through. Of course it said
"If you have lost a finger in the last 20 years from a table saw blade call the law offices of Cheatun and Screwum. This technology has been around for 20 years and manufacturers have not utilized it in order to save costs at the expense of your fingers!"
I guess Cheatum and Screwum has a class action suit filed.
I guess if you have seizures it would be a good setup - but if you have that problem you probably should not be running power tools anyhow.

Thanks for posting Will, I had seen this item befor but in that video.
i find it hard to believe that it will work and would put the safety of my fingers into it. I will keep using push sticks.

I saw that last year during one of DIY channels marathon tool show with the constantly annoying always shouting loudmouth tool guy. My take was that IF I were to buy one... it would be the one with the defective detection circuit and I'd lose my weenie or finger altogether and spoil another wood project. NEVER trust safety gadgets in place of common sense operating practices on anything... especially snow blowers. AMHIK!

I've seen this demonstrated several times at the wood working shows over the past few years, the hot dog wasn't frozen, I don't know why the demonstrater didn't use his own finger LOL !!!? Sounds like a shot gun went off when that saw stops...

I have a relative who works in a cabinet shop. He lost the tip of one of his fingers many years ago. The shop he works in now has this system in place and he says it works, although he didn't give me any details.

DUMB-DUMB-DUMB that is all I can say or than-not me.

Hold my beer and watch this, great for party's and bar bets
P.S. The technology behind "how it works" is routine stuff for electronic geeks, (think touch lamps) worth 60 bucks, it's less than
a ER co-pay
