Any time the word Sawstop is mentioned, regardless of the context, the pro and con followers have at it. To bring up another related topic; instruction manuals! How many people actually read the instruction manual of any tool before using it? I would venture a guess that maybe 70% give it a casual glance then go directly to use the tool. I’m sure many accidents have happened because the user failed to read the manual and may have been prevented had the user read the manual first. For example; every manual starts out with a list of cautions, dangers, do’s and dont’s. It is boring reading and most think they already know the dangers involved and skip over it. This creates in the user’s mind a state of false composure, a recipe for a possible accident. I personally have been guilty of such a state when a seemingly safe tool like a sander turned around and bit me. Damage was not great, but it reminded me to be more vigilant.
