You may be asking yourself like we are, if SawStop was up for sales why oh why didn’t Bosch Tools simply buy them out when they were in a loosing legal battle over the REAXX saw which they are now forced to mothball the entire line. We can’t answer that one… Anyway it looks as though SawStop will now join forces with Festool under the parent company Tooltechnic Systems, we will update you soon on what that means for the future of the line but it should be a very smart alliance for SawStop. See the press release below: (more…)
The Bosch Reaxx Saw has been ruled against in the International Trade Commission (ITC) case disputing patent issues with SawStop and the only one who can overturn the ruling is Donald J Trump himself (let him know what you think #TrumpREAXX). He has 60 days to review the case and veto this exclusion order. It’s in his hands now… but it’s not looking good. (more…)
“Patent legal action is far from over” is how the Bosch Press Release below starts. The case is not expected to be over until January 2017 and the “initial determination” still has to undergo review and additional arguments from the parties. When we reported the information from SawStop’s Press Release earlier this week it admittedly sounded very much like judgement had been made and all that was left was to determine the punishment. That is not the case and we would agree with Bosch here, it was definitely a misleading press release. (more…)
*** 9/15/16 Update – Bosch’s response to the below SawStop Press Release
SawStop just published a press release on Business Wire (see below) announcing that the Judge Thomas B. Pender has confirmed (at least the “Initial Determination”) that the Bosch Reaxx Saw has infringed the SawStop Patent. What does that mean for the Bosch Reaxx Saw, it is unclear at this point, but SawStop is asking ITC to exclude Bosch from bringing the saw into the US, including all parts and cartridges. This certainly looks like SawStop is one step closer to the Bosch Reaxx being dead in the water. If that is the case we would fully expect Bosch Tools to make good on products they have released.
If you are looking for a safer table saw with flesh detecting technology it looks like the SawStop Table Saws maybe the only option for the foreseeable future. Good news is they offer a full range of table saws from jobsite saws to large industrial saws.
Our friends at Pro Tool Reviews just did a nice comparison on the Bosch Reaxx and SawStop jobsite saws.
All of the information on the new Bosch REAXX table saw, which we mentioned previously, is available now. Price came in slightly higher for the GTS1041A-09 ($1499 includes stand) than the SawStop Jobsite JSS-MCA ($1399) which was a little surprising for us. The Bosch does offer several advantages with the smart phone integration and the REAXX does not ruin the blade when the safety is triggered which is a pretty big deal. We will keep an eye out for any additional information and should expect this saw to be available, hopefully in fall 2015.
