Shop Talk Live 37: SawStop Portable in the Works

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

SawStop director of marketing Matt Howard was kind enought to become a bullseye for a range of questions concerning the company's goals, electronic improvements, and the  long-anticipated SawStop portable benchtop saw.

Thanks,

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.

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"

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 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.
