bravo. A young woodworker like you will have a good chance of keeping his fingers for life. Wise choice on a good saw.

Very nice. I suggest you still use a push stick though.

It’s great that you have a nice saw like that, particularly at your age. But remember, technology can fail in unexpected ways. I really recommend that you never rip wood as you demonstrate in your video.

The only time that I place my hand between the saw blade and the fence is when I cut wide flat goods (e.g., plywood).

The SawStop is a great saw, but think of it as insurance. Good to have, but you shouldn’t depend on it.

Continue to enjoy your woodworking future.

The camera makes the wood look smaller than it really is…. I don’t like to use a push stick on pieces this large and I need to make a push block for more support in these situations. Thanks all!
