I have been thinking about a SawStop for a while and never did any more than think about it until this Sunday while at the New Orleans Jazz Fest. Anytime my wife and I have a booth at a show I just have to stroll around and check out all of the other artists there. While doing my customary booth visits I had the great opportunity to meet a fantastic person, woodworker and artist Archie Smith.
Archie had a run in with his table saw last year and did some substantial damage to his fingers. Archie lost his middle finger and was able to have two others re-attached to get limited use. Archie now has a Saw Stop and after our conversations I went back to my booth, pulled out the Ipad and ordered my Saw Stop. It will arrive Thursday and my Grizzly cabinet saw will be listed on Craigslist.
I don’t plan to review the Saw Stop…there are enough reviews…my fingers mean much more to me than the few thousand $$$ a saw costs.
Check out Archie's web site if you get a chance…
