Bosch REAXX Portable Jobsite Table Saw

Bosch REAXX Portable Jobsite Table Saw

Table saws account for more than their fair share of missing fingertips and missed work days, which is why Flesh Detection Technology is a thing. Introduced by Bosch several years ago, FDT lowers the blade within milliseconds of detecting contact with flesh (see it in super-grisly slo-mo action here, if you dare). Once activated, the whole system can be reset in 60 seconds, getting you back to work — instead to the emergency room. In addition to flesh-saving technology, this table saw has built-in Near Field Communication (NFC) that works with your Android smartphone to retrieve data from the tool. There is also a troubleshooting app for iPhone users. (Shown with optional stand.)  [$1,499 at amazon.com]
