Not necessarily. Businesses succeed on marketing, not technical excellence
(see for example Microsoft). The fact that they've shipped a few machines
doesn't mean that they'll ship enough to keep the lights on.
I've seen a lot of little companies that had excellent products go under
because the owners didn't understand that in order for someone to buy your
product they first have to know that it exists.

There was nothing wrong with the Dot com companies except timing. 5 to 10
years ago the stock market was performing better that we will likely ever
see again. Investors were coming out of the wood work to invest. The
market was WAY over saturated with investors and many of the dot com
companies which basically had no assets were FLOODED with money from
investors, money managers, and investment companies. When sales of these
start up companies did not meet up with investors expectations the investors
pulled out. This left the dot com companies with no operating capitol. It
would be like investing 50 million dollars into a single corner convenience
"first batch" is a pretty significant hurdle to overcome, Ted.
One could use the term "pre-production units". Having spent more
than a little time in manufacturing, I'm acutely aware of the
difference between pre-production and actual manufacturing.
Funny you should mention it, Dave. If you had opened your eyes instead of
your mouth, you might have clicked on the link and learned something,
instead of sticking your foot in your mouth yet again. Too bad you are to
busy knocking others for the hard work they do, while being a Monday morning
quarterback...all the while making no relevant contribution whatsoever. I
just so happen to manufacture, market, and sell a product that I make
ENTIRELY from raw materials. And, yes, I am aware of pre-production and
actual manufacturing, but you are obviously not.
Yeah...do you have to be spoon fed for the rest of your life? The link in
my signature. If you had clicked on it, and read a little about my
business, you would not have not asked that question, hence putting your
foot in your mouth.
For like the zillionth time, why don't you ask Sawstop?
Well, could you make one? or two? or three? I certainly think that 49
production of their product. However, since I do not know what the number
they have produced is, I won't speculate.
Of course YOU don't see it as important, just as you don't see it as
important that Sawstops ARE BEING DELIVERED in spite of your arrogance.
Your absolutely right. However, having a business that manufactures,
markets, and sells it own product does mean that there is SOME
understanding of the subject we are talking about, which is MORE than I can
say for you.
There are plenty of "buy now" buttons on ebay. Perhaps you should be
You are an asshole.
Okay, somehow the "producing" and the "is" got left out.
It wasn't an evasion. I guess my expextations of others are a little high,
especially in your case. Okay, producing 49 saws is production of Sawstop
Wait a minute...you have enough time to write hundreds of responses
requiring countless hours here regarding sawstop, yet you don't have 1
minute to compose an email to them for info? What is your motive?
On the boat? Where do you think they are? Floating around in cyberspace,
You mean I can't call up a manufacturer and order 49 saws, or 5,000 saws? I
have to keep buying them forever?
This is pointless.
No evasion, Ted. Why should I write an email to ask them what I can find
clearly posted on their website; that they aren't accepting orders yet?
"Hi, I see on your site I can't order a saw yet. Can I order a saw yet?"
Maybe that's your communication style, but it's not mine.
That's great. Now you've gone from pointless, to mildly amusing, to
I called Sawstop for the heck of it since I have no intention of replacng
They are currently shipping all of the preordered saws. A saw ordered
today would be expected to ship in April or May.
I didn't ask how many have been sold, but the production rate seems really
slow or they have a lot of saws to make.
There you have it, Dave...You can expect to have it shipped in April or May.
Does not even cost you a penny to "pre-order." If you decide you don't want
it,. no payment is required. Now let's see if your serious....LOL.
When have I ever said "I'll buy one when they're available", Ted?
My point is, and has been, that I can't order one, yet they want to
force the government to require their technology.
Nice try at redefining my point, though.
