After my kickback accident back in early Feb which I posted here to remind people to be careful out there. My purchase schedule for a Saw Stop went from “as soon as I can afford it” to “you’re going to get that Saw Stop now aren’t you?” from the wife a couple days after my accident. My initial motivation was to get a quality saw and I have been noticing that several times, I had not been fully concentrating while using my old saw. So, I wanted the SS to be that extra safety factor that my brain was lacking although I always use all my safety equipment. Well the brain fart that got me hurt happened and that drastically shortened my purchasing schedule. I was really really lucky and that I did not lose the ends of 3 fingers.
So, the purchase of a 3hp 36” PCS and industrial mobile base was made at the end of feb. I had to wire the garage for 220V and then life continued to present challenges. After more than a month of sitting at where I purchased it then more than a month BOXED in my garage after it was delivered, I FINALLY got the chance to put it together over the Memorial weekend. Yes, it was difficult to wait that long but the life challenges were higher on the priority list than the saw.
I’m not going to do any review as many have been posted before and mine would be the same. Except that I have only used it once since putting it together. BUT, turning on the saw and using it that one time got me giddy and anxious to work on a project to use it.
Now to start using the saw.. Weeeeeeeeeee….....................
