So, here you are singing “Hallelujah” to the SawStop and from the other hand, what do you answer or advise to this guy http://lumberjocks.com/topics/11359... and there are so many like him on the net every day….

And that means that the SS is for rich….you don’t have money ?
1. You’ll pay the ER (and change your life in a second)...or;
2. Don’t “play” with woodworking…
3. And there is another way…...

I would advice the $300 guy…”Use correct techniques” i.e. Splitter/riving knife, blade guard (I would throw away the “anti kickback pawls”), Blade guard, Featherboard, Push sticks and for ripping, Short fence and no, there is no “Only this time” use it all the time…

I posted the pic below a few days ago but I’ll post it again and ask again…why do I need a SS if my fingers are never around the blade (or as I call it “Pass your fingers VERY CAREFULLY 1/8” from the blade)....

This subject was already “milled” at least “zillion” times in every forum including the Aussie, UK, Canada) and, a very populare reply is; “Of course I’m not going to change my SAFETY TECHNIQUES just because I have a SS – just like I’m not going to change my driving habits just because I have an Air-bag”......
Well….maybe your “Safety Techniques” are not so good and that’s the reason that you want to buy SS…

Do you think that I need a SS….......

On every forum that I read a “SawStop” post, it looks to me that “No entry to poor guys” (or “look how the rich guys are making SAFE woodworking”) and it’s again and again an “Hallelujah” (or kind of advertisement) to the SawStop…

Work safe
