Security was a lot easier back then.  Three digits was enough.

We didn't need to watch out for computer viruses, fishing emails, pilfering mail boxes, oil minister scams.  The biggest challenge was keeping someone from listening in on the party line.

I helped assemble a large number of woodworking machines in a new school shop a couple of years ago.  One of the machines I assembled was a Sawstop.  I can report the manual is clear, correct, and 10 times bigger than any of the other companies.  The parts fit and I was totally impressed with the quality.  It's also very well designed.  Again much better than other manufactures.

I have time using the Sawstop and it is every bit the equal of my well tuned Unisaw.  The Sawstop fence is perfectly adequate for most operations.  I use a Unifence and sometimes flip the fence down to use the low side.  I would miss that feature but could work around it with the Sawstop fence.

Larry, making useful and beautiful things out of the most environmental friendly material on the planet.

We need to insure our customers understand the importance of our craft.

Well, I wont be able to report on cutting wet lumber, because I wont be doing it.  I will be happy to report back on the saw in general.

Btulloh, I was reading your post trying to figure out how it applied to Sawstop.  Lol.

Larry, my Unifence did not have the original fence extrusion that could flipped like you describe, but. Im familiar with the benefit of that.  I had the Uni-t fence from peachtree woodworking.  I liked it.
