Anti-Kickback for Table Saws


Filed with the USPTO recently, so I can disclose it. A project important to me as I have experienced kickback a few times and made it a mission to fully understand it. New AKS system addresses table saw safety and the pervasive problem of dangerous and violent table saw kickback. The AKS system actively mitigates kickback. It electronically senses the 3 common kickback conditions and activate a braking system. The table saw in video is a purpose-built prototype for testing the AKS system. A considerable amount of time went into development of this technology with several unforeseen problems. As typical of any invention, partway through and the complexity can be overwhelming. So after a few setbacks, the result looks positive. The AKS system can be integrated into any new table saw. Testing has exceeded expectations!
