These things have been available in industry for a few years now. My wife works as a chemist for a major wood products company. They got this table saw last year.

The replacement parts expense isn't nearly as bad as it's been made out to be, either. They accidentally triggered the 'quick stop' feature the other day -- not with a finger, but sawing some wood that was too wet and therefore coincidentally had the right electrical properties. Replacing the blade turned out to be about sixty bucks.
