    New Saw ...New Forum

    Here is my new saw...it is safer...then my Powermatic, but cannot be used for slicing salami...hot dogs...or other meats...It does seem to work well on wood. and we have a meat slicer in the kitchen so I think I made the right decision

    I like your observation about meat cutting. And, I too, think that you chose a great saw Mark. I used one last week and what I really liked about it was the riving knife. But, I could care less about the safety feature for which it is named.

    Mark,

    Congrats on the new saw. I'd be interested to hear how it performs over time...accuracy, power, etc. Hopefully you'll update us once you have a few hundred board feet through it.

    Excellent Mark,
    I saw that saw last weekend at a local wood working store where they demoed the hot dog. It wasn't a Nathans hot dog, but an Oscar Meyer worked.

    Congrats on a great saw, Mark. Dunno how I'm going to afford one, but someday I hope to have a SawStop of my own. It's the one woodworking tool that LOML really wants me to own.

    Vaughn, Most saws can't distinguish between fingers and wood...this one can't distinguish between fingers and hot dogs Well it does have some nice features and unlike a euro slider ...it fits in my shop

    Mark,

    Good for you, good for your son.

    I am guessing here, but over 10,000 feet through ours

    same as it came out of the packing crate.

    Vaughn,

    Put up a couple of those outstanding boards you've made

    for sale at artistian pricing, you will have a saw in no time.

    Nice saw. Is it my imagination or does your side table have a reflection in it? What material is it out of?

    Great looking saw,, are those crank handles as big as they seem to be in the pictures? They make my Delta handles look like a toy cranks.
