Andy, that same firm ran foul of the HSE over a different piece of imported kit which resulted in a number of dealers refusing to handle their products.

Hi! All,

Every workshop should have one at that price £2.779.00 + and what does it do when you cut rubber,

Ivor.

I bet its a bloody nuisance when it activates on a false alarm..........and to react so quickly it must be so sensitive that there will be false alarms all the time.

I understand that it works on the principle of sensing changes in the electrical field that the blade encounters......so will it trigger itself if you cut wet wood, or hit a knot?

Impressive bit of kit, though........at a really impressive price! If the HSE see this, they are in the end going to insist that it is fitted to every power saw in commercial use. The £40 chopsaw from B&Q could find its days numbered!

Ah but this is just the the start, hopefully it wont be long before they adapt it to work on some sort of caliper and pads system that won't ruin the blades.

Must give you a helluva fright when it activates!

I'd be to scared to put a really expensive blade in it as well.

Americans seem to have impressive stuff at there disposal!

They also do a Bandsaw like this as well, which you should also be able to find on YouTube.

Speaking (again) of HSE, I can't understand how they seem to overlook the fact that Record Power (among several other manufacturers, supply their tabe saws with a full-length rip fence - without even a removable short option. Yes, it's easy enough to make one from MDF, but surely there are regulations which state you shouldn't even have to consider this??

I think that we've seen this on the forum previously haven't we?  I have certainly seen it somewhere before.

Olly,

one day I'll post pictures of my home-made saw table...........and of the wall where the bits it throws out usually embed themselves!! It is a high quality spear thrower........but as long as you know that, I can't see the problem!

Hi Olly, I have the Record TS200 table saw. You're right, it does have a full length fence but it's adjustable from front to back. In other words, you can pull the fence back to the correct position for ripping timber of different thicknesses. It's quite a neat system and a cracking saw for the money.
