    I bought three this morning and they arrived ten minutes ago. I have already used then to add an addition on the house. 3K square feet.

    I think I should trade in my SawStop for some of these

    This saw is so exciting, we've got two threads dedicated to discussing it!
    There's usually more than one way to do it...

    Well, it's worth it. A saw like this doesn't come around every day, y'know.

    Honestly, I think it is a gimmick or gadget, but eyecatching for sure, and they will sell quite a lot of them.

    This is the sort of item that I would not buy if I couldn't try if before, more than once.

    Moreover if you make a cut that is not well aligned you repeat the same mistake three times.

    When I was a kid at school one of the usual punishments was to write a hundred or more times sentences like " I will not talk during the lesson"

    We used to join three pens with adhesive tape so that we could make three lines at once and hence speed up the process. I guess that the marketing people from Lee Valley got the idea from there
    Best regards,

    Toni, I suspect something got lost in the cultural translation:

    Now THAT would be the PERFECT solution for me. I've just gotta have one of those, 'cause I could screw up Three dovetails at a time and with daily practice, I could actually get rid of my "Scrap Wood Problem" without feeling Guilty throwing them away.
