    I just read a blurb in the new wood magazine that bosch is launching a flesh detecting table saw, due out this fall. Apparently, the blade instantly drops if touched by flesh, and each cartridge can be used twice, at a replacement cost of about $100. Good to see some competition for sawstop. Are any of you using the saw stop saws? Anyone saved a finger with the technology? Would you buy the new bosch? I still can’t wrap my head around how it can sense flesh over wood, but it must work. The bosch is called ‘reaxx’, and is $1500 for a 10″ 110v jobsite saw.

    On my facebook feed toolboxbuzz.com talks about the Bosch REAXX, the new table saw with flesh-sensing technology table saw with airbag technology.  Looks like it already getting a REAXX – action from the woodworking community.

    Always willing to learn .

    I just Googled it, and no surprise, an NPR article comes up first.

    Oh wow, I wonder how they ended up getting into that with all the lawsuits and stuff with that other brand. I couldn’t find it on FB but what’s with an airbag?

    Our own Robert Robillard announced it on Concord Carpenter also. He indicated more details are to come out the end of the week.

    Wonder if they are they licensing the SawStop technology or did they come up with something new.

    That is a curious one. Maybe since sawstop works only through contact with the blade (still producing an injury, though obviously a much more minor one), an airbag could be designed to deploy via a sensor if it detects flesh at a set (small) distance from the blade.

    Very interested in the details of this one.

    I hope they designed something different .

    Should be a cool development. Always nice to see more competition. I wonder if it will transfer over to other equipment.

    and then there’s the added cost.

    Good news for sure. Any advance in making tools safer is all right by me. Glad Bosch is there!

    here is the scoop. an actual review!

    http://www.protoolreviews.com/tools/power/corded/saws/bosch-reaxx-table-saw-gts1041a-preview/14811/

    That is just awesome.

    Sorry for your luck, Sawstop. Its interesting that it was debuted at the World of Concrete, but at least to my knowledge, there hasn’t been a peep about it. Strange.

    It’s also interesting that they describe it as built on the 4100 platform, yet the model is GTS1041. That would seem to me to indicate it being more in line with the current GTS1031 than the larger 4100 counterpart. If it’s going to be similar to the 4100, that was a bit of an odd choice for a model number.

    All in all, this is an awesome development.

    This does sound positive. I hope that Takata isn’t making the airbags.

    It’s nice that does’t destroy the blade.
