Can a table saw be retrofitted with SawStop technology?

The SawStop technology cannot be retrofitted to existing table saws. At one time SawStop approached table saw manufacturers offering to license its patent portfolio technology, demanding an 8% royalty on the retail value of all table saws with the technology in addition to other terms that were onerous and not related to table saw safety.

How does the safety system on a SawStop work?

The blade carries a small electrical signal, which the safety system continually monitors. When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive. The change to the signal activates the safety system.

Is the SawStop brake on a table saw safe?

It’s important to note also that the SawStop brake alone does not make for a safe table saw. Kickback is still a threat, though the included riving knives go a long way to prevent that. As advanced as table saw safety has come, there is still no substitute for training, experience, good judgement and alertness.
