Dont be so testy, I just am curious about this system.
I happen to be an expert by default on machine tools, use, buy-sell and repair.
I state by default, because I am the old guy now, the others have passed away.
Well if by testy you mean calling someone out from making statements that they evidently have no proof of, then NO.
How can you be curious about something and an expert at the same time. Your previous statements about the SawStop and how it will fall apart was stated as a fact as if you were right. They were also stated as if you were an expert. Now your just interested in these saws and how they work.
As for being an expert. You definitely can't be an expert by default because the other experts passed away. Your either an expert or not an expert. Judging from some of your post I'm going to lean more towards not, especially on the Saw Stop technology.
I have seen many crashed machines of low horse power like these saws, always severe damage is the result.
I use the term crash, because that is what happens on these saws.
Really you have seen many crashed saws like this. Yet, No reports about any crashed Saw Stops have hit the media or web. Interesting that you have the only ones.
I have looked at these saws at Woodcraft in Spokane Wa, the expert there could not answer any of my questions.
As for the expert at woodcraft they are generally called salesmen around here. They only know what it takes to sell a saw. I'm not sure about Woodcraft but I guess it's the same.
If you have questions call SawStop technical support and ask questions other then that buy one, use it, take it apart what ever you like then when you have something that is a fact come back and show us.
My whole problem with your post is it lacks facts and is condemning a product that you obviously have no idea what your talking about.
