Topic tags/keywords: incra table saw

Hey all,

I purchased an Incra mitre 1000HD. It is very cool and it worked better than expected.

While using it I came across a problem. I was using the work stop and pushed a piece through cutting at a 45 degree angle. To be safe I would have to push through all the way past the riving knife to remove the piece. This would make me push the jig all the way onto the out-feed table. Instead I would push through the cut to mid-blade and turn off the saw. I just felt safer doing this.

My thought was this. Are there saws that use a brake to stop the blade when power is cut? I had a lawn mower that had a blade brake and it could stop the mower blade in less than 2 seconds. Does any one know of a saw with a feature like this?

I don’t know about any saw like that but, I use that same gage and on mine, there are two screws that loosen so you can pull that end of the backer board away from the blade.
