There was an aticle about this technology in Fine Wood working magazine, I think, a few years ago. Nice to see that they are actually marketing a saw using it.

Yeah, cost is high but waaay cheaper than increase insurance premiums and medical bills.

Without that saw = $400,000 in medical bills during an injured lifetime

With that saw = a $0.10 bandaid, new saw blade $?.?? and a new block of aluminum for the safety device $?.??

...but if you didn't and they tried to cut a piece of metal (aluminum) or something on them that's conductive - BAM! - you're out however much money it is to reset the machine.

I saw this saw tested a while back on that PBS show "Ask This Old House". They did the hotdog test and yep it wrecked the blade and hardly scratched the hotdog.
The saw does have a bypass key to disable the shutdown system for use when cutting conductive materials. I'd think even damp wood may be a problem.
