Politicians Answer : Um, yes.
Engineer's Answer : How heavy is the hammer?
Wrecker's Answer : Is it a Klown Hammer?
Troll Answer : Is it grounded?

SWMBO's answer : He would hit the remote control to see if it stopped that
strange feeling in his head.
Your question is too non-specific sir.
Nasty? If you think anyone here is nasty, spend a few days over at
rec.outdoors.rv-travel. Salty bunch of bastards!
BTW, ignore Doug and ask away. Most folks over here are pretty easy to get
along with. Apparently it's Doug's time of the month.
Yeah - Go over to rec.outdoors.rv.travel and post a message with header "gun
control". You don't need any words and your likely to goe 200 posts.
Not really - kidding.
(Kidding about actually doing it - not the # of posts) - It's like this
place. Good folks but salty.
the ususal two that get the most action are:
"why can't I bring my concealed hand guns in to Canada?" and anything that
says one make of truck is better then another.
either is usually good for a few days.
I have been using one at work for about four months now, and it is a
great saw. We all know about the nickel test, well, this saw passes the
dime test. I can stand the dime on edge with the saw stopped, turn it
on and it hardly even wiggles. I have not told my kids about the safety
feature because some would intentionally trip it to see it work. Some
of my advanced kids know about it, but I have asked them to keep it to
Believe it or not, one of our school janitors wanted to see how it
worked and touched an allen wrench to the spinning blade and tripped it.
Ruined the blade and a cartridge. I was pissed. Another janitor told
me who did it and I confronted the dumb turd. He fessed up and bought
both out of his own pocket.
why can't a person just ask a question and not get a civil answer?
Like I have posted above, I have researched this and I am asking for some
genuine opinions. If you don't have one, then don't asnwer.
I am very sorry I cam back to this group.
The subject has been discussed to death.
What I got from all the opinions is that the Sawstop company would like to
make their patented technology obligatory in the name of safety. They
could not persuade nor legislate that. So they decided to make their own
machine. Apparently it is generally well made, does what it advertizes,
but is expensive. You do the cost-benefit analysis.
I am seeing that as it is about $2,000 higher then a Unisaw up here in
Canada. I think I may still go with the Unisaw or a Jet.
I am going to go talk to a friend at Lee Valley today, though.
There you go, smart idea. Advice and or actual experience, perhaps a hands
on trial would be the best answer to you questions. As indicated this has
been discussed here to some length and many dislike the company and
therefore the saw because of the way it was being introduced in the early
days. They wanted the government to require that this safety devise be
added to ALL saws. Many calimed that the saw would never make it to market
because of the lack of interest and or money. It's here, and apparently it
is liked my more than a few thought.
Either way, it is a good idea to to the toughy feely thing with any sizeable
Grizzly used to be available in Canada, but now they are not shippping to
Canada. The good news is they have an outlet just across the border in
Bellingham, Washington. That is very close. I will check out with Canadian
Border Services to see if they are restricted for some reason. Probably CSA
