I still check a couple of times a week, but I only chime in when I've got something worth saying.

Huh? The brake fired, and it didn't wreck the blade? How'd that work? I can't imagine trusting a blade that had just been high speed slammed by a big-ole chunk of aluminum. At a minimum it must be mildly bent and out of true.

Glad to hear your story though. Your administrators must be pretty thrilled too.

I'm retired now too, but I check in at least once a week to see what's happening. The SawStop story is great, happy to hear of it. I was trying to get a SawStop when they shut me down.

I am still here and back to school as of today -- I check in 3 or 4 times a week -- don't log in unless I feel I have something to contribute. Sometimes my thoughts are contrary to what some might like to hear -- but hey -- I'm old and been around.

I check the site every couple of weeks when I get the chance and have some free time, but I don't log in unless I need to post something.

I check the posts about once a week, enjoy them, but haven't replied to any. Good to see that there are still some woodshop teachers out there.

Thanks to all...
Not sure how to increase our ranks...

I've spent far too much time on mandated paperwork and far too little time on upgrading the content of the website over the last year...
Absolutely done with that...
Let them fire me...
Not going to spend another minute on that crap...

I'll let you know as the site gets updated...
Even if it is just for us few...

My main push on the website this year will be curriculum for Woodworking I (9th grade level).
If you have lessons and plans to add please e-mail me...
jnovack@madisonschools.k12.va.us

All the best,
Joe

Been enjoying the postings about sawstop, we just we just got one this year. As of yet,have not used it as we are still waiting for it to be set up by the school department. Hope use it the second half of the year!!

Techedone, when you do get your SawStop up and running, make sure that its connected to some sort of dust collection system. Unlike a traditional table saw, without proper dust extraction these things will rapidly clog up and become inoperable. A simple shopvac worked great for me until I was able to get it plumbed into my dust collection system.

+1 on having the Saw Stop hooked up to the dust collection system. Learned that the hard way.

On topic: I check the site a few times a week.

I have a Delta 2010 dust collector hooked up to my saw stop and it works very well. It only cost about $229.00. I ordered it from MidWest supply.
Try to have it hooked up to the switch on the saw so they both come on at the same time. I did'nt do this and now I have to turn on the saw and then the vac.
I guess I'm getting old if something like that is a bother.
