BIG News: Festool Purchasing SawStop! | THISisCarpentry

"We are proud to join a company with a shared passion for customer safety, product quality and meticulous engineering," said SawStop's President, Dr. Stephen Gass.
If Dr. Gass really was interested in saftey he would not have stopped Bosch in their move to bring a different technology to saw saftey . In my view he was looking for the bucks . I have been to the factories in Germany and have seen several of very big names coming off the same assembly lines . This is not about saftey now ,its about money I've spoken to Dr. Gass and sure, you can't trust anyones' words (someone will certainly say "especially an attorney!), but the man struck me as being smart, sincere, and also caring-after all, he did something no one else would do. Gass invested millions and years of effort in perfectly the SawStop sensory system. He's a serious woodworker and an attorney. Who better to do that job? Couldn't the major power tool manufacturers have done it first, and sooner, and, and, and...sure they could have. They have far greater resources! But the major tool manufacturers are compelled to look at everything from a pricepoint perspective: "Will their customers pay for it. So they didn't invest in that research. Gass took the risk and deserves the reward. But there's more: he offered to license the technology to the tool manufacturers. I would have said something snarky like, "Well Billy, maybe Dr. Gass would have taken you more seriously if you offered to work for him for free, since you expect him to work for you for free.

SawStop Dismissal Explained: Opinion Crosscutting SawStop's Antitrust Lawsuit Released | Consumer Product Matters

www.consumerproductmatters.com [cached]

To recap, according to the February 2014 complaint, in 2000, Stephen Gass, inventor of "SawStop" and a patent attorney, began licensing negotiations with several companies now named as defendants in the lawsuit.
As a result, the companies allegedly held a vote on how to respond to SawStop and shortly thereafter ended their individual licensing negotiations with Gass. Tags: Antitrust, Power Tool Institute, SawStop, Stephen Gass Subscribe via e-mail Subscribe via RSS

Opposition to CPSC Rulemaking on Table Saws and SawStop-Like Tech is DOOMED

In looking at some of the past comments, I came across a couple of comments by SawStop's Stephen Gass.
When Gass was trying to sell his Saw technology, one of the manufacturers actually decided to extensively test a Sawstop outifitted saw. In their tests, the manufacturer found the Sawstop technology would falsely trip when cutting pressure treated wood. Gass wasn't aware of the problem, which seems to indicate he didn't fully and properly test his saw since pressure treated lumber is a fairly standard lumber for both homeowners and builders. Gass then hired an engineer to fix the capacitance issue. When the person Gass hired couldn't find a solution, Gass sued the engineer he hired. SawStop / Gass will either be steamrolled by industrial / judicial collusion that works around his patents, or more than likely, a graceful licensing agreement will be reached that leaves Gass a wealthy man with a nice revenue stream.
