This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I have a PC circ saw that's a little older so it's not bad at all. Don't use if very often. The table saws are pretty much Delta's old models. Don't care much for the brand anymore.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

That saw looks very similar to a number of others so they might all be suspect for this hazard. It's impossible to say if the PC one had bad parts the others don't.

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.
