Testing New Table Saw Technology
Ask This Old House general contractor Tom Silva and host Kevin O’Connor look at new type of table saw with smartphone technology.
- Tom explains the table saw has smartphone technology. It has a feature allowing owners to program who can and who can’t use the saw. The saw can sense if the phone nearby has user clearance.
- Tom shows the table saw can sense moisture and drop the blade. This technology has been around, but this model uses a two-time use cartridge that pops the saw out of the way if a body part should get near it.
- Tom is able to reset the saw by flipping the two-time use cartridge and bringing the saw blade back to the top of the table saw.
