I bought the Delta Biesmeyer and would do it again in a heartbeast.
NO MORE KICKBACKS!!! Is that a good enough reason? Why do so many
peopel grip e about pawls? They are a safe way to cut wood. The
standard pawls are worthy of a good ole lawsuit; they are junk. But
the Biesmeyers are really good. Have YOU ever tried them or are you
complaining and mocking from ignorance?
The problem that scares me IS the straightback kick back. If I see a
bind, I know it. And somehow (bandsaw?) I manage to not cut small
slivers on a tablesaw. I confess; a 3 HP. 220v UniSaw scares me with
all the power it has. That is an awesome machine.

They are not saw proof I had the guard on a 12" PC miter saw come loose and
catch on the blade and I was picking little pieces out of my skin for hours
thank God I was wearing a face shield or I would have been in trouble. To
be bullet proof it is much thicker and duel layered I beleave. To its
credit it did take 6 teeth out of the blade I had in there too.
I don't beleave that a blade guard is designed to stop kickback just to try
to keep your fingers out of the blade path. The splitter is used to keep
the kickback from happening.
