    Saw Stop in Time Warp

    If you have never seen "Time Warp," it's a show all about super-duper slow motion cameras capturing things we take for granted and never see as they really are. One of the guys actually uses his finger to trip the safety.

    Ray,
    I've heard that you can resharpen the blade but I would be afraid of the carbide tips coming off.

    I'd just buy a new blade

    while a new blade will cost a bundle , I think that the motor will go out too unless it got a special switch to cut the power to the motor

    i have had the brake engage for me.

    no it wasn't my finger, but the tip of my miter gauge.

    There is no damage to the saw, all you need to do is remove the blade and engaged brake, insert a new brake and blade and start sawing again.

    I kept the blade hung up in my shop for a 1 1/2 and finally decided to remove the blade from the brake.

    I lost a couple teeth so I took it to a shop to have new carbide tips installed.

    There are only about 4 or 5 tips that contact the brake. The rest of the blade is undamaged as is the Zero Clearance Insert.

    I haven't used the repaired blade yet, but I will.

    Do they check the blade for warpage or runout? Just wondering. In the video it did seem the blade flexed quite a bit.

    Great Video thanks for posting Darren. I have watched that show but miss it often. Glad to see they did the saw stop on it.

    What good marketing for the guys.

    Who cares if you loose a blade and cartridge, the price of a hand injury could be way more costly in many more ways than money.

    I would still like to see more variety in the test demonstrations. I would really like to see how this saw cuts wet wood like what we get from HD in the construction lumber section or pressure treated when its damp from the processing plants.

    I know it has a switch to bypass the brake but what happens if one does not. How likely is the brake to false trigger.
    cheers

    I'd think they would want to add a tester, moisture probe, or perhaps an embedded LED to warn of a possible trigger due to moisture so one would remember to turn on/off the by-pass. Perhaps even a warning light to show the by-pass is turned on.

    Maybe they do...I'm just rambling and too lazy to research it.
