It is absolutely a common sense thing. But many people let their
emotions factor in on their decisions. If you simply factor in nothing
but facts the choice become more clear. For example new car dealers
want you to take that test drive. The excitement of driving a new
vehicle helps to sell the vehicle. Now having said that we had to help
bail out GM and many people are not going to want to have any thing to
do with a company that had to be bailed out by the government. Does
this make their vehicles a bad choice? Yes if you now hate GM, "maybe
not' if you look strictly at the vehicle itself.
This whole disagreement on the SawStop is mostly based on whether you
have a dislike for the SawStop product because of it's owner or if you
simply judge the product on it's own merits. Again if you let emotion
play a part of your decision making you may not get the best deal on
paper. As with anything you buy if you are happy with your decision you
got a good deal for you. We like to buy what we like whether what we
like is a good product or not. When we put aside the good feeling and
look only at the facts we make better decisions.
Of course there's always emotions involved, but there's different
types and different levels of emotions. You just have to stifle them
as much as you can and go from there. If you go into something where
logic is required and you're too angry or too upset, then you're going
to have a problem.
Well, that's slightly different. Almost every time, the SawStop has
been discussed, I've gotten into it with krw. That is emotion driven
because we thoroughly detest each other. That's different only because
the discussion is online. If the conversations we've had were in
person, I'm sure we'd have tried to beat the crap out of each other.
We can't do that online, so pent up emotions get let loose. :)
You have to despise the guy for his tactics to make it law to use his
You have to admire the guy for taking the risk and starting his own
business with the high quality saw.
You have to step back from all of that and make a decision based on
facts and what is best for you.
One more question; where are SawStops manufactured and if in the US are
any parts made "off shore"?
I ask primarily because of the statement on their website:
"100% U.S. Owned, Operated and Engineered"
(nothing about where they're built)
