The Problem With Table Saw Design

Table saw manufacturers have done little to update table saw designs in the past 50 years. The only protection against table saw injuries has been a plastic sheath, which does little to prevent injury and is often removed. Despite the fact that table saw injuries that have risen to over 40,000 accidents per year, manufacturers have not taken steps to add greater protection for saw users.

Since 2003, manufacturers have known about a safety device, which could be added to prevent these sorts of devastating accidents. SawStop creates devices that can be added to saws, which senses whenever the blade saw comes into contact with skin and immediately stops the blade from spinning. Manufacturers have resisted adding this feature, which would cost about $100 per saw. This forms the basis of our defective design claim.
