Congratulations on the new saw but this thread aint worth squat without pictures.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I have the same saw and love it! Now I can leave my old Unisaw set up with a dado blade for cutting tenons and whatnot.

I did trigger my sawstop a few months back when I moved my Incra miter gauge from the Unisaw to the Sawstop. The distance from the blade to the miter slot is different on the two saws and I neglected to adjust. Well, I ran the metal Incra miter gauge's fence into the blade and WHAM! The cartridge fired and the blade dropped below the table instantly. There was only a tiny, tiny nick in the miter gauge. I guess I'm happy that I know it works, but it cost me $180 to replace the cartridge and my Forrest WWII blade. I didn't qualify for the free cartridge replacement because the blade didn't touch my skin.

Enjoy your new saw!

Straight from my manual on my saw. Look at the last paragraph under "If You Have An Accident"
