A SawStop Rival

Bosch have released their equivalent to the SawStop contractor saw, with a version that does not damage the blade when it pulls it under the table.

It would be very interesting to do a side-by-side comparison to see if this compromises the reaction time of the saw, and whether there is any difference experienced in operator damage between the two.  I’m not convinced that saving the blade is the most important consideration, but it is an interesting bonus if there is otherwise no difference in the reaction time between the two systems, or amount of injury the operator incurs.

It would also be interesting to know what mechanism Bosch have used to actually detect flesh, and how that differs to SawStop.
