It was something Phil mentioned in a thread about SawStop and that it wasn't likely to be used in Europe because it wouldn't be effective enough on blades larger than 10" because of the extra mass and inertia of the larger blade. Maybe Roger can comment on whether machines must have electric braking.
Roger I don't know that posting it after getting to the UK would be much cheaper. The rates in the US for posting are some of the cheapest there is. Canada's rate would most likely be prohibitive. You can find out for yourself by going to the USPS web site and type in the info. Priority mail has certainly gotten much more expensive from there but 1st class isn't too bad. The one thing I can't afford in most cases is courier charges. The actual cost of moving the item isn't that bad but they charge a $40-50 customs forms processing fee and in most cases when it goes by mail I don't need one and Canada Customs also doesn't bother with a fee (or inspection). I'm not sure what is customary there.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
