A quick Saw Stop comment

Page 3 of 3  
Full Cabinet Saw, 220v, 3hp. I opted for the 36" fence which will help me justify a track saw in the future and frees up some space today.

Now that there are 2 cabinet saws, was it the original industrial or the new Pro model?

I recently read a similar review from a forum-mate. He thought it was an amazing piece of equipment as well. I will get to use the same saw some time this summer as I venture out his way. (Also a school, btw.) Your review adds that much more credibility to that tool. Thanks for sharing.
Now I go change my bib.

"> Out of all the saws I have used over all the years ..."
Caught me off guard. hought "Saw Stop" was a technique tip or question not a tool "review."
As that it failed for not being up front with the intent of the writing and then for failing to provide the details such as URLs and pricing information.
Why did he find it in a school shop? Of course, its that saw that shuts down when it gets a bit of skin in the blade.
Go figure.
School systems can justify spending extra bucks for insurance claim saving features and the purchase decision likely had less to do with the tool's WW features than with the safety features hardly mentioned or complained about in the "review."
Hard to find a "no spin" zone even in wood working sigs!

My natural shyness and difficulty in expressing myself usually mask my true thoughts.
OK, well.... maybe not.
But you know, sometimes you just don't feel like listening to or reading bullshit about something you didn't do.

Yup.
Thanks. You know, I think you got where I was when I typed that one out. I am sick of Chinese, Taiwanese, "assembled in Indonesia or Mexico from parts from the the following countries, but not limited those countries" and all manner of other business that defies the poor state of tool quality today. I am sick of paying $$$ for mediocre to crappy tools. Mostly, I was just very pleasantly surprised that the particular machine mentioned was possibly nice enough to justify its high price as a saw, regardless of its safety features.
I for one (and know many here as well) will pay for good quality if we know we are getting it. Although much maligned by many for their business practices, and debated to the last minuscule point on whether safety features are necessary or not, I was surprised in the fact it was actually a very nice tool.
So I was thinking.... what if someone is looking for a saw about now?
That is actually how I bought my Fuji HVLP. Maxprop used to post here, and he sent me some really great stuff on the Fuji Q4 after mentioning it here several years ago at exactly the right time for me to help make my decision making process. Nothing like hands on experience. He answered questions that the magazine reviewers never bothered to ask.
Anyway - we used to see a lot more of the tool comments, sometimes a (*gasp*) review or two and we hadn't had any in a while. I am hoping others will continue to post their thoughts as I know there are a lot that read this newsgroup, but few that comment.
The post by HP was so off course, so dumb and inaccurate I probably should have just ignored it.
But you know, some days you just can't.

I work on enough prototype projects that I know that I would never be able to do some things unless there are some good folks who know their stuff. -----------------------------------------

--------------------------- Well, it is a surprise that does not happen enough. There is so much crap in the world, that a quality product is a shocker. ------------------------------------------

Sometimes you just have to say what you feel. That has got me in trouble a few times. But that is OK. To quote Frank Sinatra, I did it my way.

If you thought that, then you must be even dumber than the rest of your post makes you appear -- considering that you commented on the SawStop in a thread titled "Is a SawStop Table Saw Worth the Money?"
