I think this item should be a mandatory addition to all saws. The video showing it in action is amazing. I don't know if it can be retrofitted to an existing saw, but if it can it would be a great investment.   Later,   Mickey   On Mar 27, 2004, at 9:29 PM, Residence Organ List wrote:   > > Subject: Saw one Dennis none. > From: <Pipewheezr@aol.com> > Date: Sat, 27 Mar 2004 21:16:31 EST > > Electric organs are looking more enticing.

It is limitations and restrictions of that kind = that stifel creative thinking! We DO NOT need 'government' in any form to protect us. Saws, and other machine tools, are dangerous! If some cannot =   accept that fact and act accordingly, let them not run such machines!   At 10:16 AM 3/28/2004, Mickey Sadler wrote: >Hi Dennis, > >Check the SawStop site at http://www.sawstop.com/ .
