Its a matter of going to your closest supplier and getting a new blade and brake.  The change out is just a matter of minutes.  The trunnion gets pushed down in the braking process so you have to pull

lol I never understood this concept people came up with that having a SawStop would make a user careless around the table saw. I mean come on! Its still a huge, deadly looking, spinning blade! NO im n

I've been told that at my age, that this could be a reoccurring problem, regardless of what ts you may have

I think it came with a straight blade cord end, but can't remember for sure. I chopped mine off short & made a longer cord with twist-lock ends.

You're going to enjoy assembling that thing. Great instructions & they have it packaged in such a way that you can do it all without help.

Congrats!  I have that saw, and I really like it.  Instructions/manual definitely top notch.

I don't recall mine coming with a power cord.  I had to go get one and wire it in.

Have any of you triggered the stop in your Sawstop?

I have. It not only has flesh sensing tech, it can also sense a stupid operator. I was cutting a board with graphite cloth glued to it. And graphite is conductive. Duh...

Mine came with one but it is the 1.75 so that might make a difference, I don't know.  If you want to be sure give SawStop's tech support a quick call.

The 3 HP definately comes with a cord. I wanted a longer cord, but rather then disembowel the starter to install a new cord, I just cut it to about 1' & put a new twist lock end on.

It comes with cord and plug.  If you go on line you can see the manual and there is a drawing of the plug.  Their plug didn't match my outlet, so I had to cut it off and put on a new one. Easy to do. You will like the saw.

This sounds like the ticket...

Thanks I will check that out. I think I will too.

I always seem to be the contrary one . . . I have a spare regular and a spare dado cartridge.  I have only tripped the machine by cutting some UHMW plastic that I failed to recall was anti-static (read, conductive).  My nearest Saw Stop dealer is 35 miles away on SoCal freeways so I keep a spare on hand.

Chet, Dr, 

How long to replace the cartridge and get the saw running again?  What did that cost you?

Takes about 2 minutes (or less) to get going again. Cartridge was $98 & the blade (almost brand new Freud Premier Fusion) was fortunately on sale for $89.00. Those are Canadian prices; much cheaper for you folks.

I'd read about how easy it was to put together, but my dealer assembled and delivered it for me.  This is why I'll buy from him when I can.  As far as the plug is concerned, there is a picture of it on the online instructions, so I just made sure my electrician had that when wiring up my garage.

All reasonable replies.

I caught myself reaching across a spinning blade the other day, for a cut piece.  It was almost like watching a horror movie, so I took a break, and reviewed the safety procedures in the manual.

I definitely see the value of a Sawstop.

I also set off the cartridge with an INCRA jig. I happens so fast that it takes a moment to realize what has taken place. I found that replacing both (blade and cartridge) took a little longer than just a changeover due to disengaging the blade from the cartridge. I keep one standard spare and take my chances on the dado. I have more (if that is possible) fear/respect for multiple spinning blades. The sound of a single blade is much different than a stack of blades and chipper's. You'll notice the first time you turn on the dado stack.
