    That sounds really cool. The fact that it doesn’t destroy the blade is huge compared to Saw Stop. It would be really nice to see Bosch come out with stationary saws with this technology to compete with Saw Stop too.

    I would guess that if the Technology is a hit, they would roll it out on larger saws or license it to someone who does larger saws

    here is the scoop. an actual review!

    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.

    The platform in the photo is a 4100 so u would guess that will be the platform they use. I would be interested to know what the replacement cartridges cost.

    It is great that Bosch is able to leverage technology from their other business units to improve their saws. That is a great use of resources and a sign of a great company.

    Yeah I suppose licencing it would be an option too. I wonder who they would partner up with if they went that route for larger saws.

    My guess would be someone like Jet / Powermatic. They don’t really compete on any product lines. Jet /Powermatic is basically only stationary tools that Bosch does not make. I love would guess they could adapt the technology to bandsaws and other tools also.

    My hands are equipped with blade sensing technology.

    Hahahah, thats good

    Would be some neat technology

    I think that’s going to be the crucial component. I hope it’s cheap, well reasonable. I always thought the sawstop was over priced.

    Will be interesting to see the price tag, Look like better breaking retracting the blade than sawstop. Be good to see reviews once it gets some use.

    It is very impressive that the technology does not destroy the blade. Glad to see Bosch coming out with more innovative stuff!

    Sounds like a great saw. Great Bosch designed there own product and left saw stop in the dust. I too hope the saw is still at a good price point.

    Hope technology like this will become universal. Keep alot of people from doing serious accidental damage to themselves.

    The price point will be the key. It will be interesting to see. I think the Pricing and the heavy handed tactics that Saw Stop has used have slowed it’s entry and acceptance in the market

    Also, I think bosch will license the tech. All the cabinet saw companies could jump on board and put the hurt on saw stop.

    Just imagine the hurt on Saw Stop if all of the other companies were producing saws with blade retracting technology at a similar or better quality and a better price point. Bye Bye.

    It also said after it happens 25 times you must take the saw in for maintenance, Well LOL…….If you trip the thing 25 times perhaps you need to reevaluate the way you’re using it LOL

    I thought the same thing, but why not 24 or 26, the actuators come in 2 packs so an even number of finger fouls would make more sense.

    #296966

    If you can’t figure out what you did wrong after the first or second time, you should be allowed to operate the saw. I like what Bosch is doing. Coming from an insurance background, as this type of technology becomes common, I can see insurance carriers strongly encouraging companies to use it.

    Yeah, anyone who sticks their finger in the saw 24 times, the 25th time should be their brain.
