CLARY LAKE WOODWORKING SCHOOL NOW HAS A SAWSTOP http://www.sawstop.com
Saws, even with the best training and supervision, are dangerous, but with Sawstop the possibility of injury from the blade is eliminated. With Sawstop, the safety comes first, and is followed by unmatched quality, precision and meticulous engineering. SawStop saws are built to last, built to cut, and built to protect.
How It Works? It’s So Easy
1. Monitor & Detects – The blade carries a small electrical signal. When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive. The change to the signal activates the safety system.
2. Brake Activation – An aluminum brake springs into the spinning blade, stopping. The blade’s angular momentum drives it beneath the table, removing the risk of subsequent injury. Power to the motor is shut off. All this happens in less than 5 milliseconds!
3. Reset – Resetting the saw yourself is easy. Simply replace the blade and affordable brake cartridge and your saw is operational. The entire reset process takes less than five minutes.
