Safer Saws Tcarter101

The inventor “In 2015, 4,700 people in the US lost a finger or other body part to table-saw incidents. Most of those injuries didn’t have to happen, thanks to technology invented in 1999 by entrepreneur Stephen Gass.” 

Reluctant Manufacturers:-” the mechanism for stopping the saw blade is much different between the two saws” since the federal government is considering making this new safety feature mandatory for all table saws.

Determined regulators  many customer safety representatives are pushing for this safety feature to be added. They are pushing for it to be a mandatory feature for all table saws 

Gass-since Gass own a lot of pattens technology designs sources say that it will give them a monopoly on the table saw industry

Delighted customers- many owners of commercial  wood working shops that are more willing to buy  these products are very enthusiastic because it reduces the previous risk of these injuries which causes a negative downtick for them because the injuries cause people to stop their projects and have too much down time to where it stops completely and they lose interest.   

Resistance free markets -Many people like contractors and handymen are more likely to consider buying things like this so they continue their business and make money. 

Outraged plaintiffs- many of these other saw and tool company manufacturers are not happy about this being mandatory because it can double the cost of entry level table saw.making the price go from $1,500 to $4,000  which can drastically affect their business. As well as prevent certain people from being able to afford it. They don’t believe that this necessary since there has not been an amputation from their thousands of customers
