My opinion is an echo from a previous post that the most dangerous tool in the shop, or anywhere for that matter, is the tool between the ears if it is not engaged properly.

Many manufacturing machines are guarded so that operators do not get injured but most of them are not destructive to the machine and IMO that is the technology that will win out in the near future.

However, from what I gleaned from the post above is that the SS is a class TS so why should it not be a prime candidate as your next TS?

If I was in the market for a new saw my choices would have to include the Hammer sliding table TS because I have always wanted a sliding table!
