Saw stop
« on: Yesterday at 01:42 PM »
So I have a new saw stop job site saw and it shuts off a lot.
I’m cutting poplar and feeding it fairly slow.
After turning it off and back on it works for about a foot or two of cutting.
I’m on a large cord that’s only 50’ long.
I have the stock blade if that means anything.
Is this normal?
I’m very unhappy
Literally I have run about 30’ of poplar and it has shut off on every cut.
Help. Thanks in advance,
Charlie

I had a similar problem... Called SawStop and they sent me a new controller switch for free although I was outside of the warranty period ... It easy to install. All happy now  [smile]

Is the saw blade slowing down during the cut? My saw stop ICS had a similar issue and the set screw on a drive pully had come loose. The controller sensed the blade slowing down and shut the saw off.

No stops completely , shut off the switch ,restart and repeat .
Very frustrating ,thanks for the help,
Charlie
Ps. I am getting a lot of scoring/burn marks also,
I made sure the blade was running true with the fence , so I am at a loss.

If you're ripping vs. crosscut I would put in a rip blade. The 40 tooth blade will burn on rip cuts sometimes.
