I also have a SS PCS. I have had it now for a couple of years. It is in my opinion the best tool I have in the shop. I would also higly advise if you have room to get the 52”. It is awesome if you work with plywood.

I really don’t care about their politics. I just know I like it. With all the things going on in this world politically, our tables saws pale in comparison. Aside from the saftey, I don’t know as it is any better than the PM, in fact I think I like the PM fence better, but they are certainly so close in quality, I would choose the SS again in heartbeat. I have the wheels and have rigged the outfeed table to be easily detached. It all is awesome. But, I also agree that a dado is a PITA!

Having said that, as it was previously mentioned, you have many other tools that would do worse thing to your body than a TS….can you imagine putting your fingers in a Helical Jointer? Also, as mentioned safety is between your ears, but this will be a little “island” of saftey in your shop, one place where you are a little safer.

Earlextech sited some dollar amounts for med bills. I have a friend that cut a couple of fingers off and it was double that, his out of pocket was 9,000. How many sawstops will that buy?
