Table-Saw Blade Guard

In the past, table-saw blade guards helped keep you safe but often made it too difficult to see what you were cutting. (And how safe is that, really?) This new one's translucent shield lets you keep an eye on the cut. A second feature curbs kickback, and another prevents the blade from binding in thick material. Approximately $600, www.boschtools.com.
