Just got done watching a review of the Sawstop on Charles Neil’s site. He has an 18 minute video giving you an upclose look at all the features of the saw. Charles is a strong believer in this new technology and he will tell you and show you why in the video. He does not show you the hot dog test that we have all seen but what he does do is cover all the other elements of the saw that makes it not only a safe saw but a well built saw. Please take the time to check it out at:http://www.antiquesbuiltdaily.com/tips.htm

Thanks for the update Mike.

I have had one of these on my wish list for some time now. If only my wife would give me an advance on my allowance!!! :)

“an advance on my allowance!!! :)” that is to funny we all work so hard making the $$ and still have to beg and plead and take out the garbage to get any $$ to play with <grin>

As far as this saw goes.. the first thing that comes to mind is “dang it will kill my good blade” then I wake up and realize just how dumb that thought is and how much more my fingers cost to replace.

That was a very informative Review!

Had no idea it had all of those other features!

Thank you!

I can’t seem to find the Charles Neil SawStop video anywhere. The links I’ve found say it’s forbidden, unavailable, etc. Does anyone know where I can watch this video? I looked around on Charles’ website also and could not find it.

I love me some Charles Neil. However, not even he could sell me a SawStop.

I’m still coveting Roy Underhill’s foot-powered treadle table-saw he has in his Woodwright’s school!
