Black Box Prototype Photos

This is our latest PROTOTYPE model blade enclosure operating with our Whirlwind BLACK BOX attached to the side of this popular contractor saw. Like most, this saw required NO electrical modification for Whirlwind, although we did temporarily remove the original power switch to avoid confusing the operator with two power switches. Using the Whirlwind patented flesh-sensing guard and enclosure all the common table saw operations that are usually considered the most dangerous can be performed far more safely as our photo examples demonstrate.

If you are working with a large assembly or cutting sheet goods, your hands need not be positioned anywhere near the spinning blade and if necessary you can easily remove this blade enclosure for those operations and bypass the flesh-sensing safety feature using a safety key switch.
