    A stove? Likely story. He may be using the drum for other things:

    A percussion instrument
    A bbq to fry sausage and peppers. A stand at the San Gennaro feast
    A bobbing for apples rig for Halloween
    A new way to dry wood
    A way of getting things out to a submarine off Jones beach
    A wine holding device. (He is not Italian)
    A collaboration with Charlie J. Secret compartments.
    A giant piggy bank for loose change

    Believe Bosch developed the system you are referring to. They use two explosive cartridges to drive the blade down. There is no damage to the blade. Install a new cartridge and you are back in business. Bosch and Saw Stop are probably in court over patent infringement.

    As you know, wood is basically non conductive. If the wood is really wet the water is a good conductor.
    What is interesting is how fast the blade retracts. I am sure it is still spinning as it descends but still the mechanism is very quick. Detecting the conductivityand dropping the blade happens in a nano second. Great design.

    Just did a little research. It seems they are detecting, someway, conductivity. They advertise that they detect skin which is smart advertising but they do not mention other elements. Glad it worked for you. Even if the blade cannot be salvaged a cheap price considering what it could have cost. They may be using a low voltage circuit, through the blade, when it is running.

    I thought the safety mechanism was set off when the circuit was completed by detecting “salt” on human skin or, as they demo,a hot dog. Did not realize it could bee triggered by hitting metal. Would like to see detail of the circuit which I am sure is proprietary.

    If we could get the Historical Society to make the Barn a hot spot we could look at videos on You Tube and other web sites

    Dewalt has a repair center on route 110 in Amityville. Not sure what brands, in addition to Dewalt and Porter Cable, they repair.

    I have a set of Freud which has given me good service. The set was a gift so I do not know the pricing. What I like is that the set of drill sizes increase by 1/8 inch, no bits that I will never use. My set goes from 1/4″ to 1″.

    This should be fun. Daryl R will be on hand with his Japanese plane he bought in Okinowa at a garage sale. He had a yen for it. Bob U probably will bring his violin plane he swears was owned by Stadivatius. Maybe, Charlie Stradivarius of Hoboken. Mike D will forget his plane and will borrow one. The Cabinetmakers should be out in force. The Carvers will wonder what the fuss is about. The Turners will yawn and make another bowl.
