    Competition for Saw Stop?

    Anybody else see this? I happened across this yesterday while doing some research on a Bosch 1611 router that I found for sale. This was just posted yesterday on The Wood Magazine site.

    I think it was matter of time. We shall see, I would have purchased a sawstop but they don't sell in Europe, as Bosch problably will they will loose that market.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I'm anxious to see how this develops. To my knowledge, Bosch does not make a big saw like Sawstop does. I wonder is they will hit that market also. Love to see some competition in this area.

    I'm anxious also Paul, I would think that contractors will be all over this if it works out.
    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    if its cost effective they will have good market for sure..sounds like iit could be much less in cost compared to the saw stop in parts but if your racing with the big boys why not get the big purse

    Interesting that Bosch would try this. First thing that comes to mind is a patent infringement. Steve Gass, aka SawStop developer, is a patent lawyer.

    What I am reading and understanding, Bosch has many different patents through automobile manufacturing and somehow has linked air bag technology to this saw. Patent infringement, sounds unlikely in that Bosch doesn't utilize a brake and somehow doesn't destroy the blade either. No videos are available until the official announcement, sounds like it was leaked, maybe to gauge interest?

    Here's a video that Wood posted on their Facebook page yesterday. Definitely a different setup than Sawstop uses,
