(apologies if this is old news to many of you) (title fabricated for humor only)

I was amused to read this and see the pictures but I was really amazed/impressed when I saw the partially assembled car near the end of the article. Marc

I doubt it, Sawstop has no experience at designing an actual braking system, why would a car maker that has been designing them for decades hire a company that has no experience to do something that it can?

The sawstop brake simply throws a piece of metal into a saw blade causing its force to pull it under the table and the piece of metal that the blade is embedded in to stop it. I don’t think you want your car brakes to operate the same way. The genius in the sawstop is in its sensing mechanism.

Hi Doctor D,
Thanks very much for sharing the Morgan link, that was a fascinating video. I’ve seen only one Morgan many years ago but never up close enough to scrutinize it. Marc
