SawStop comment deadline is extended

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has added 60 days for public comment on its proposed table saw safety standard.

The commission is considering whether a new performance safety standard is needed to address an unreasonable risk of injury associated with table saws. The standard could require manufacturers to put a SawStop or similar safety device on their saws.

The Power Tool Institute, a group of table saw manufacturers that opposes the standard, requested the extension. The new deadline is Feb. 10, 2012.

The commission is inviting written comments concerning the risk of injury associated with table saw blade contact, regulatory alternatives, other possible means to address this issue.
