Oops on my Sawstop

I have a Sawstop PCS and no brake activations for a long time until yesterday.  I was using my Incra miter gauge  and I had somehow left a small T Nut in a groove.  Of course it felt out touching the blade and BANG !!!..The cartridge fired and blade dropped below the table.  It took out my favorite blade which is a Freud glue line rip full kerf.  I pulled the blade from the cartridge and one tooth was stuck in the cartridge.  I have read comments about people reusing a blade after an activation. I will not do that especially after seeing that tooth.  So, it cost me a $75 for a blade and $95 for a new cartridge.


Well,  it's good to know it's working.   $170.00 test,  worth it.  
At least no hot dogs were harmed.

Figuring out how to do something you have never done is what makes a good challenge.

it's too bad ya gotta lose the blade to,but better than a finger.
I told my wife what happened and it cost $165 .  She said the safety was worth it. We have been married 51 years and I will keep her.

That's teamwork!   51 years is wonderful
