At the risk of reopening an old thread, some people might be interested
in knowing that a recent episode of Ask This Old House had a
demonstration of the saw. It was part of a saw safety presentation by
Well, it happened in a class at the local Woodcraft store. A student reached
over the blade to knock off a wood scrap and didn't raise her hand high
enough on the way back. Needed a bandaid.
It's turtles, all the way down
Is the saw stop worth the $4,000 if the company is no longer in
business? Say 5 years from now, this guy cannot stay in business, is
this saw worth the money you paid for it and equal to say a laguna. Now
I was not able to get an answer from saw stop via e-mail on the motor
frame size. I asked if it was OEM or had a nema frame size. It would be
very helpful if it was a nema size.
Now I understand , or at least I think I understand why other mfg. co.
did not sign up for this licence. The bottom line just went up 8% but
the info to saw stop would be how MANY saws mfg A sold and how many mfg
B sold . Just think how much that INFO would be worth to another
company. So the biggest concern right now is WILL they be around in 5yrs
or will I have an expensive grizzly ?
The way businesses are bought and sold, what makes you think any of the
major tool manufacturers will be the same in five years? Just take a look
at DeWalt, Delta, Porter Cable, etc. Better think twice about buying a Ford
or Chevy too.
The real question with Sawstop is how hard it is to hack the thing to
run without the cartridge if five years down the road you fire your
last one and Sawstop or their heirs or assigns is no longer able to
provide you a replacement.
