But what about the inside of the saw? The hidden parts that are

Unless that "minor" improvement is required to make the unit work (for some,
perhaps, redefined value of "work"), the improvement doesn't extend the

It's not a problem because the saw comes with a switch to turn off the
sensor. Of course, I'm waiting for the day that someone turns it off,
forgets to turn it back on, loses a finger, and sues SawStop for letting

Wonder what happens if you're using the saw in a light rain or heavy fog?
What if you spill your beer on the work? How does it function if you're

Replying to your other inane post:
Beater often equals appropriate. A beater is the item that you don't
care about as much, not that it's crap. I don't own any crap tools, I
give them away or donate them to Habitat and they make the choice
whether to use them or sell them. My beater Makita has been with me
since ~1994. It has been downgraded honorably due to it's long term,
slightly annoying service. I still hate it, but it does what it asks
and only makes _me_ complain. My beater bicycle is worth more than
your 1990 Chrysler soccer mom van, but it's my beater bike and I don't
worry as much leaving it locked up somewhere or letting someone borrow
You know there's another possibility for you - buy a Festool track saw
instead of the SawStop. They're a safer saw with a retractable blade
and a riving knife, but I'm sure you'll figure out a way to fuck up
the saw and remove them.
See? There's always hope and there are always alternatives.
