Just kidding! I had you going though, didn’t I?
I just finished responding to a question about the saw from someone who has decided to buy one. I’m amazed about the passion people have about the saw. It reminds me of Ali – everyone watched him either because they loved him or they hated him. Sawstop threads are one of the few topics where, no matter what the question is, people will chime in on their feelings about purchasing, owning, or operating the saw (me included).
I vote to make this posting the MEGA SAWSTOP TREAD! My goal is to get 1000 comments in a week. We can rotate our comments over and over again (just like we normally do) and maybe we can get the mods to pin the thread at the top of the power tools section.
One person can talk about the quality. The next about the cost of the misfires (including the blade). The next one can address the causes of the misfires. Then someone will need to mention the sales force tactics which somehow will diminish the quality. After that we’ll cover the customer service. Then on to the outrageous cost. Someone will have to mention the override switch and cutting wet wood. Then on to the comparisons between the unisaw and PM 66. By then someone will recall a friend who lost a finger. After that we’ll discuss where they’re made. Don’t forget to mention that sawstop owners are very happy with the saws. And schools are using them which means our kids are being polluted by the sales tactics (all kids will want one as if they’re an apple computer) I’m probably missing something but I’m sure it will come up in the rotation. Did I mention safety? And, don’t forget, we can restate our feelings as often as we like.
I’ll start – I like the vibration free quality of the saw. I can peel off .090” slices of 2” think walnut for laminations and go directly to glueing without any planing or sanding. I also like cranking up the blade. I just need two fingers (my unisaw requires two hands) Who wants to go next?
-- Sorry the reply is so long. I didn't have time to write a short reply.
