Ok, for the un-initiated, a saw stop saw has more “modes” than an ordinary “binary” saw.
A SawStop saw can be off, on, and running (and a few more error and temporary status modes I won’t go into here).
The “on” state involves a separate switch that activates the saw’s start-up tests and gets it ready to “run”.
A few times I accidentally turned the saw to “on”, then hit the big switch to make it “run” and used it, and hit the big red switch to make it stop “running”, but left it on. Then I came back the next day and noticed it was still “on”.
After that happened about 3 times, I stopped bothering to turn it all the way “off” when not in use.
My shop is locked up tight when I’m not there and there are no children around here to get into trouble. Since there is no significant safety issue with leaving it in that “almost on” mode…why not just leave it that way?
So I ask the forum here…why bother?
