    I don’t know why, two different designs.

    Must be a patent thing

    Knew this was coming, Knew it. They’ve got most people thinking about how safe it is and they are trying to convince the government to make it a part of EVERY table saw so they would make a killing licensing the tech to everyone else.

    I’m not surprised to hear this either. Sawstop seemed greedy from what I was reading about them earlier this year. Interested to see what happens.

    There is another thread where this was mentioned…but I can’t find it. I can’t see this lawsuit resulting in much. The products are similar, but don’t function the same. IMO, that means SawStop doesn’t have a leg to stand on.

    we have also been discussing this here: http://bethepro.com/forums/topic/bosch-launching-a-flesh-detecting-tablesaw/

    it will be interesting to see how this comes out.

    Here’s a relevant video from the Colbert Report about SawStop and their pushy ways… Colored by some late night humor of course. Take a look, you’ll be glad you did!

    Does this surprise anyone? Sawstop sues anyone and everyone to get there way.

    I get the same thing as well. Just a pick of some guy with his hands covered in bubble wrap.

    This might be it, but it won’t let me watch it because its one of those stupid media things where it won’t let me watch it outside the country of origin. 🙁

    I can’t see how they can do that since it’s a different system that Bosch uses. I guess it depends on the details of the patent but I doubt Bosch would come out with the new table saw if it violated patents in any way. I liked the Saw Stop cabinet saw that I used last year but I’m not a big fan of how they go about their business.

    i was talking to someone higher up at bosch last week about it. he was telling me that they actually expected it and have all their ducks in line so theres nothing really to worry about. the sawstop guy is just trying to use bully tactics after he lost his case to make his tech mandatory on all table saws

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    I doubt we’ll hear much about it then. It shouldn’t have been a surprise they’d be ready for it, Bosch is a HUGE company and a parent company to many smaller ones. This wouldn’t be their first rodeo.

    I hope they squash SawStop and their tactics. You would think Bosch had all this figured out from the get go. Sawstop is not making any friends with these efforts and I feel this is not in their best interest. One word sums it up – greed.

    Wow, That SS guy just doesn’t quit. I guess he doesn’t realize all this suing hurts his business more than it helps

    I would think he cares more about his monopoly then getting more money . Power builds greed in a soul .

    Always willing to learn .

    I’ll bet he didn’t hit the home run he thought he was going to… Trying to cash in however he can.

    So, when will hear him crying about how the big evil German corporation bullied and beat the good little American inventor?

    #372938

    Like I said in the other thread, I do not exactly appreciate how sue-happy the SawStop guy is, but I think it is pretty standard practice to challenge others on patent rights in the tool industry. Case or not.

    It doesn’t make me like the guy or his offering any more though.

    And I am really glad Bosch has an alternative! I just hope this doesn’t delay/deny NA the option.

    Lastly, I imagine Bosch anticipated this. Check out ToolGuyd’s thoughts:

    If he hadn’t pulled the force his crap down everybody’s throat stunt, then sue again because he lost, I’m sure nobody would’ve said anything about his current suit.

    He, Gass, believes they are infringing on his patent because he believes ANY saw that incorporates “active injury mitigation technology” is a violation of his patent rights.
