Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

It is surprising how some think SawStop should freely give most of their patents to the public domain. I'd really like to understand their justification for this. Who thinks that? At issue here is SawStop lobbying to make their patented technology required usage in all table saws while not establis...

Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

That statement from SawStop is as meaningless as it can get. Patents are already public and not enforceable after they expire. I now dedicate this post to the public.

Re: Cateract Surgery

I went to a clinic to get it done. They said I'd have to go the hospital and get it done under general anesthesia. Two different opthamologists say I don't need cataract surgery, just glasses. I got glasses that let me read pill bottles but don't help otherwise. My distance vision is still fine, nig...

If the new owner is lucky the only problem is it's not mounted on a Mark :D

Re: Im happy I finally signed up

I'll mention another common pattern is a "new user" will reply to a very old thread with a post that is generic and only tenuously related to the topic. And again, once the post has been forgotten it will be edited to insert the spam link With posts like that you can use forum search on a...

Re: Im happy I finally signed up

My wife scans Shopsmith forums on FaceBook for me. To sign up for them they ask a question like "What type of Shopsmith do you have?". I don't remember an exact question she answered, I don't think such a thing should exclude those who are curious, but some kind of question like "Why ...

Re: Returning the E-clip to bandsaw

I've done it. Perhaps the wheel is not all the way onto the shaft or askew so the exposed groove is not wide enough to seat the clip.

Looking at the parts diagram I see the E-clip is seated against a fiber washer, that could also be the problem.

Re: US Government is About to Change Table Saws FOREVER!

The patent system has inherent problems but that shouldn't be surprising because it's a body of law meant to regulate ownership of ideas that have not yet been thought of. In my opinion the Sawstop patent is overly broad by claiming any method of detecting contact between a saw blade and human flesh...
