Jorge, I realize that it would be significantly faster than locking up the brakes on a car, but it is still slower than a sawstop style brake. Physics rules all. That’s the need for the proximity sensor. I believe I read that the whirlwind has 3x the braking time as the SS, but the sensor they use can make up the difference by firing BEFORE the hand contacts the blade.
