Bent the blade shaft?! How the...?!I have a friend that bent the blade shaft in a Saw Stop. They sent him parts and instructions.
He was nearly 80 and half blind. When he asked me to help I studied the instructions and had a lot of questions. He relayed them to support then they arranged for a tech guy to come and repair the saw. I was never more relieved.
After this lemon.. I mean headache.. I just want to throw my hands in the air and stop pursuing any form of woodworking.All the while youre theyre deciding, without a saw. Are you a custom , professional shop?
My thoughts exactly.. Does it work..? Can you have peace of mind?I've been on the fence about getting a Sawstop, and was chatting with my wife about this 'fix it yourself' experience. Her question, would I still have confidence in the saw if I had to fix it?
I realize it has diagnostics and everything SHOULD be fine. But I might always wonder. And it seems like a big part of the SS value is peace of mind...
Glad to read you're getting another, fingers crossed the second time's the charm!
A core charge???? really? for warranty problems???? Sounds to me that they dont stand behind their products too well. If you fix it, they have no more liability if it fails.The last thing I was told, SawStop said they were going to get a deposit of $2,500 from me, before sending me a new saw.
^^^^^This! You'll get my uni when you pry it from my cold dead hands. I often wondered how long before the electronics would have issues.
