It is sometimes the small things: I dropped an allen wrench down the dust collection shoot. I opened up the larger access hatch to gain access to the ducting. It appears SawStop figured I would do that, so they put a real handy thumb screw on the ducting. Very easy off and back on again. I love it when you see quality and function even “under to hood”!!

Don, I am sure this will not be the last time this happens. The dust collection chute is well located to catch anything (even sawdust) that freefalls around the blade. I have dropped several things down the chute and, like you pointed out, they are easily retreived. Mine usually end up at the dust collection port and I simply take off the dust collection hose to retreive them.

This is fairly handy in that the lost parts aren’t rolling around on the shop floor or hidden in a remote corner of the saw’s enclosed base.

But it does sound like you are having fun and enjoying your saw.
