Active AKS eliminates kickback on table saws


Woodskills has introduced a brake activated electronic AKS system that is said cannot be defeated.

The system detects three common forms of kickback — board pinching the saw blade and thrown back, board binding between saw blade and fence and thrown back, and board rotating away from fence and thrown back.

The unit works with saw blade brake to mitigate kickback and is integrated into throat plate of modern table saws.
