I mentioned in the previous posting that I tested the Sawstop technology accidentally. Here it is and it’s impressive. The blade is buried about 3/4 of an inch into the alumium brake. The brake stopped the blade instantly as the teeth either side of the brake are untouched. Changing the brake was a breeze. As I mentioned before I’m not mechanical. Still trying to figure out how to change out the new window sheild wipers I bought 3 days ago. I replaced the blade in about 10 minutes. After doing it once it is easily done in a couple of minutes.
I have to say that the blade SawStop ships with the saw was good quality and I was sorry to see it meet such a timely demise. Pocket hole screw are tough on saw blades but I’m sure Kreg would be proud of what there little screw accomplished.
Now a few shots of my new baby.
This is a pic of the spray painted pegboard shelf I added to my saw.
This pic shows the painted miter slots in the outfeed table.
I hope this blog was interesting and informative. That’s all folks.
