Bad ground would be my guess, followed by defective sine generator or
defective AD on the other end.
Sawstop should ship you a new saw and have that one picked up for
Got any photos of the gore?
No kidding and hopefully Joe is correct in his observation of the misfire.
Do you remember back in the 60's when certain people could not wear wrist
watches as the watch would not keep correct time but did just fine on some
else's wrist? Or was that an Urban Legend? Anyway I wonder if it is
possible for some one to carry enough static electricity that he may set the
cartridge off by discharge?
On 12/14/2005 4:34 PM Leon mumbled something about the following:
Not urban legend. I screw up watches when I wear them. I did actually
purchase a $19 Timex in 98 that kept perfect time for 5 years until I
had to replace the battery. It never kept time after than (tried 3
Pretty much an urban legend, but tempered with enough facts to make
analysis tricky. In nearly every case I have seen, the watch was out
of adjustment, so it runs OK at ambient temp, but runs fast or slow
when on a wrist with a higher temp. Or, the battery had been
"replaced" in a not-so-tradesmanlike manner, or the wearer/owner was
incredibly rough on watches (and just about everthing else for that
Quite possible, BUT protection against electrostatic events is
relatively easy to design in, and, it MUST be extensively tested to
demonstrate it's immmunity. To not do these things would be stupid and
just asking for it. The same applies for immunity from RF fields, such
as nearby cellphones, 2 way radios, arc welders,etc. Given that it's
going into an uncontrolled industrial environment, it's reasonable to
expect a high degree of immunity designed in, and tested for.
Yes, only when cutting small parts like stair returns which we use a push
block to cut. But I have now learned that out of the ten people or so that
use this saw during the day it has always misfired on the same person, so it
sounds like the digital watch problem. I will be calling Saw Stop as soon as
the wake up this morning (west coast)
Is it running when it fires? It pretty much destroys the blade and throws
the saw out of whack doesn't it?
What a pain in the ass.
At least you will keep all of your fingers if you are never able to use the
