I always thought if I was looking for a new saw it would be a Powermatic. Part of that reason was I thought the Sawstop would be allot more money and I see that's not the case. I also looked into the price of the break cartridges. I see on Amazon they are only $69.00 for a 10 inch blade cartridge and $89.00 for the 8 inch dado blade. I have been in the shop at the tablesaw all day and have given this some thought. Sometimes when you get old you get set in your ways.. I changed my mind. Enjoy your saw.
