Long Story Short – Fingers are too valuable and I’m too inexperienced to NOT get a sawstop (I am a capitalist myself anyway). I sold my Ridgid granite-topped saw and bought a Sawstop 1.75 Professional Cabinet Model. Here it is arriving home for the first time:

And Resting unopened comfortably. I probably won’t unpack it for a few weeks as I’ll be studying a good for an upcoming exam.

You have an iron will. I would be opening the saw before it’s off the ramps!

To keep myself disciplined, I have intentionally not ordered all of the things I need to make it a fully-functioning unit. I bought the Incra TS-LS supersystem to go with it, but purposefully haven’t bought the router table/lift for it yet. This way, I don’t even have all of the stuff to get up and running. Plus, the knowledge that it’s going to take between 5 and 7 hours does wonders on keeping me focused on the “more important” things right now.
