Splitter and Anti Kickback PawlsOne of the leading causes of table saw related accidents is kickback, which occurs when a piece of wood gets ejected at high speed, back toward the operator. This can cause some serious injuries. This happens when the wood binds between the fence and the blade, and then gets caught by the teeth on the back on the blade. In order to prevent that from happening, many table saws are fitted with a splitter. A splitter is basically a small vertical blade made of metal or plastic, which holds the Cerf open behind the table saw blade. It's a simple solution that works, up to a certain point.
Another option to think about is the magnetic switch. You can read more about this on my page about safety features, but in short this will prevent the motor from dangerous automatic restarts after power interruptions. A magnetic switch is more common on cabinet saws, but you may want to consider an upgrade on your contractor as well.
Blade Materials. Diamond tipped masonry blades that are meant to cut plywood and hardwood are usually fabricated out of metal, but those that are designed to cut through harder materials require the use of even harder materials. The harder material is applied around the edge of the blade, with the metal core remaining intact.
