I’m waiting for them to produce a sawstop like tablesaw, then they’ll get my money for that. Right now I’m stashing the cash for their spindle sander just for the fact I need one and can get american made.

I have two fingers missing and I still do not understand why someone would want a Sawstop ( I hate this company anyway). If you are afraid of accidents do not drive, do not use power tools , do not cross the street and so on.
Dangers and accidents are an integral part of life.
I had many accidents and I spent many months in hospitals and clinics and I do not regret one of them.
On the road “safe drivers ” drive me nuts.
Life is about taking risks and chances, sometimes we win sometimes we loose.
When we loose then we try again.

This is an example of the other direction, jobs and technology leaving the U.S.A.!

I am glad that Delta staying put as yesterday I found outthe company (deliberately left unnamed) I worked for (27 years) sold the automotive electronics parts plant to BAIN Capitol a number of years ago and yesterday the employees in that plant started training Chinese workers as the entire plant will be moved to China. This is bad blow to a city of 30,000 and falling.

The time I worked there the CEOs were all “home grown” and the company was expanding all over Northern Illinois, Southern Wisconsin, and Ashville North Carolina. Early in the ‘90’s the parent company decided that “home grown” CEOs were not what they wanted and brought in a company man.

His nickname, we found out later, was Neutron Ray as he got rid of all the people but left the buildings in tact. In less than 10 years the company went from a high of 4500 to less than 1500 and now less than 900. I left in 1995 and I am glad I did.

Why did I write this? I guess I was a little PO at the company for screwing the employees and the city that gave it a home for over 75 years!

My job when to India, then after a few years of losing major customer after major customer, the company came back in the USA.
Very common in the computer industry.
The worse part about Made in China, is that most products are made on labor camps/prisons where the workers are not paid at all and all profit goes to the government.

B2rtch- you are right, life is full of risks. That’s why cars have seatbelts, bicycles are typically not direct drive and have brakes and helmets are available, sidewalks and lighted crossways exist for pedestrians, and why smart motorcyclists wear leather, boots and a helmet. There is all kinds of safety equipment to mitigate the damage. Risks are fun, I’m well aware, but it doesn’t mean we can’t take the risks with a little foresight into reducing them.

I am not advocating taking risks for the fun of it.
When I was riding a motorbike I was always wearing an helmet.
I always wear my safety belt and not only because it is the law.

It really makes me extremely upset that Sawstop wants to push their technology on us through the government.
If their technology is so good and if they are really concerned about out safety more than about our money, they should make this technology available to all, free of charge, then may I would consider buying a saw equipped with their technology.
Greed,so common in our society, makes me extremely upset every time.
