- The blade carries a small electrical signal.
- When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive.
- The change to the signal activates the safety system.
I purchased my SawStop from Black Forest Wood Co. I haven’t used the saw yet since I am in the process of wiring in a 220V circuit. However, the guys at Black Forest were excellent to deal with; great customer service, knowledgeable and willing to spend time answering all my questions. This kind of customer service is getting rare these days so hats off to Andy and the team!
