On this week’s edition of Shop Talk Live, we report live from AWFS 2013, one of the largest woodworking machinery and supplies shows in the nation, if not the world. While working the floor to report on a whole host of new tools and machines, Asa and Ed were able to convince some of the representatives behind your favorite tools onto the show. Look for interviews with folks from Teknatool, Rikon, Lee Valley Veritas, and even SawStop.
A SawStop Portable in the Works

I have a listen to this podcast yet — too busy clearing out my storage unit in search of long-lost tools – is saw stop that new technology that keeps you from cutting your hand on the saw blade? I remember seeing it demonstrated on YouTube but I didn't know it was already on the market.
From my personal opinion, the main features that are important when building a benchtop have definitely got to be mobility and storage space. When you have these 2 factors, the benchtop will serve its purpose to its fullest. It will be easy to be moved around for the handyman to perform his works around the workshop and an ample amount of storage would be to store all the tools that he uses.
Like listening to Shop Talk Live, but I cannot always listen on line. Can I download it to my I pod shuffle and listen when I have time. If so how do I do it. I am some what computer challenged when it comes to doing this sort of things.
I wish you guys had asked Mr. Howard what he thought about the ethics of paying millions of dollars to have Congress lobbied to pass legislation that would effectively help him create a monopoly. Not to mention price most wood workers out of ever owning quality cabinet saw.I'm very disappointed with you guys.Next time why don't you guys interview the retired engineer who designed a safety stop using D.C. current to instantaneously kill the motor and the blade. Not only can his be retro fitted to you,r existing saw,but it a fraction of the cost.
I like using hand tools when I have to. Example: after gluing up a table top or boards wider than 12" (Wider than my "T" planer), there is nothing like a scrub plane to get things close. Depending on the grain I might hand plane with a smother if there is no tear out and finish up with a hand held belt sander. It gives me results.
Thanks for "Pod Cast"
Why would anyone buy this sawstop? Born of a busted legal hassle that should never have made it to the civil courts in the first place, and pushed by a lawyer who is only interested in $--you test this thing and it will not stop a hot dog from damage when pushed at the rate the "victim" did in the original claim--it'll cut it in half before stopping--been there, done that.
I'd like to say thank you for the podcast. You guys have great chemistry together and offer great advise. I don't have many woodworker friends if I did I would recommend the podcast. Listening to the show keeps me inspired and its great listening to people who love woodworking almost as much as me (joking). Keep the shows coming and I agree with most listeners weekly podcast would be great! Thanks for sharing your knowledge stay humble.
