It doesn't say that he is "a paid endorser", but I suspect it should. Does anyone believe that he is not getting paid? I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he got a free saw (not that I begrudge him that).

He specifically says he is not. So I believe that. Says he paid full, tax, and shipping.

Actually, Sawstop saws are all sold for the same price to everyone. No one gets a better deal than some one else. SawStop is so well known, even to those that only know about the hot dog cutting saw, that they do not have to give any one any breaks. There are many many more testimonies from more credible pro's, meaning they make their living mostly from using the product rather than writing about the product. His single endorsement is a only one of probably thousands. And since he is better know for his paid articles than the volume of work produced on the saw, his endorsement probably means less to people that believe like you.
So no, I don't believe that he is being paid either, in this case.

I can believe it. My voice is on a radio commercial for a local supermarket with my "endorsement" of why I shop there. My only compensation was a thank you by the guy making the recording outside the store.
My endorsement of "System 2000 oil fired boilers is on their website. No compensation for that either. I'm just happy I'm saving 39% of my heating cost. They did verify that too.
Over many years I've written letters that have been posted in a store about a product I used and only once was I given a token gift by one with a value of perhaps $5. I also will write when I am not satisfied with a product and have usually been "made whole" if there was a loss on myh part.

Aw, come on now. You are now a local celebrity, that has to be worth something in notoriety. LOL
FWIW these free endorsements of a product do help to keep the product cost down and being non paid for they hold a bit more weight with me.

Did you not read in the article where he stated clearly that he paid full retail price and received nothing from Sawstop?

I received an email message today from Highland Woodworking revealing Schwartz' new saw. It even had his picture. Surely they must push a few cut-offs his way?

At the end of his article he wrote, P.S. I have disabled the comments on this post. I have no desire to hear the same histrionics that pollute the message boards.
But he had a choice about whether to make an "announcement" at all. Evidently he felt the need.
Actually, when one of the ww tool sellers took some interest in photos of my "shop to be", I mentioned how nice the finished pictures would look if it had some of their machinery in it...for a discounted price. They didn't bite, but if my name was Schwarz they might have... And Schwarz is more business savvy than me and has track a record which proves it.

Don't blame him a bit ... commentards abound who are convinced they know best and can point out the error of your ways; and worse - that someone will actually believe what they spew.

Chris said,
After all, the company has been working quite successfully to make its technology de rigueur on all table saws via legal and political channels. (And to be fair, many of the other machinery manufacturers have been working just as hard on the other side of the issue in the political and legislative world. There are no good guys or bad guys in this debate.)
I often suspected that there was a flip side to the story. I hope that he did indeed find that there was at least equal opposition being provided by his competition.
I mentioned more than once in the past that while Gass, being in the spot light, did not use the best of practices to bring his product to market, he was doing nothing wrong. Many feel that his caring for our safety was not so genuine as him wanting to make a fortune. On the flip side his competition still wants to make a fortune too and have chosen to not make their saws safer in this way.
Having said all of that, all new cars sold in the US in 2018 will all have back up cameras. I wonder who is to be blamed for that?

I'll take a portion of the blame. In a few forums, I've stated I will not buy a new car unless it has a camera. I've had one for about 18 months and I'd give up seatbelts or airbags before I'd give up the camera. IMO, it is one of the best safety devices ever in automobiles.
Perhaps my voice has been heard and it pushed along some congress critter to pass a law for them.

I agree, more so from the convenience aspect. And as I previously mentioned, keyless ignition and entry. You really don't realize how nice that is until you walk up to your other vehicle to unlock the doors or trunk with out keyless and dig around in your pocket for the keys in the rain.

I'm just wondering in what form the first lawsuit will be about the use or operation of those cameras.

I immediately thought about that to. And in at least on the case of many, if it is or has been raining the view is often totally distorted.
I think that back up camera and the sonar warning should be used together to back each other up.

I'm not saying I approve any of these things, but the real fact is that there's a large number of people who do not, will not, or refuse to pay attention to all those things. You might call them stupid, I blame it on the values that our current society attempts to instill in everybody from the very young to the very old.
Another part of the problem is that in this technological age, there's a rush to stuff anything and everything with something electronic. ~ more to make a buck than safety motivated I'd say.

That reminds me of a news blurb I saw recently. A women was going around to a number of local restaurants and after eating a significant portion of her meal, would complain about it. She would not be charged for what she just ate and frequently would be given a voucher for a free meal the next time she visited ~ All of this of course, was her taking advantage of customer service.
It worked fine until the restaurants started talking to each other and then her face was splashed all over the news.
Making a valid complaint is fine, the businesses appreciate that, but complaints are frequently made with the purpose of profiting somehow. I've been known to make a complaint or two, but I also make sure to pay compliments too when I experience something that I appreciate.
