SawStop The manufacturer incorporated its blade-brake safety device into a 10-inch table saw. The blade-braking technology detects the difference between wood and flesh by sensing moisture content; if an operator's finger or hand touches the blade, it stops in less than 5 milliseconds, leaving the user with just a nick. The 10-inch contractor saw features a 1.75-hp motor, 40-tooth blade, miter gauge, true riving knife, low-profile blade guard, and blade shroud. 866.729.7867.
