Dude, you should get that with the Hain company stand I just posted and then all we need is a robot to do the work for us, until it revolts against us of course.

How much can the screen help?

For goodness sake look at the blade directly.

I could see if a person had bad eyes or if it were designed  for a disabled person, that may be its intended target audience.

Next they'll implement auto-focus, as in an auto positioner/hold down. You mark your board and set it on the table and the positioner/hold down slides it into place (determined by the contrast detection receptor) and beeps when it's ready for you to make the cut.

United States Patent 20070157782 Kind Code: A1

Abstract:
A saw. In one embodiment, the saw includes a base, a table, a motor that rotates a blade, a sensor, a controller, and a display element. The table is movable with respect to the base. The blade is movable between a first, substantially vertical position and at least one angular position removed from the first position. The sensor includes an optical encoder disc, and generates and transmits a signal indicative of the angular position of the table with respect to the base or the angular position of the blade with respect to the first, substantially vertical position by monitoring one or more optical reference elements included on the optical encoder disc. The display element receives the conditioned signal from the controller and displays the angular position of the table with respect to the base or the angular position of the blade with respect to the first, substantially vertical position.

I've been using (  :o shiver :o ) a GMC chop saw for rough framing, because the client wants me to reuse some framing timber (he's a friend), and there's no way I'm going to use the K@#$%X. Lemme tell you something. GMC ain't gonna make one o them Buck Rogery type gizmos until they can figure out how to make a chopsaw right. And it ain't right yet. It ain't even close. I thought the blade was gonna fly off and gut me today. It got stuck in a 2x4 and spun loose.

Take the little TV and the Hydrogen shmeurgen and shove 'em up your hoosis.


Screw it, I'm bringing the Kapex tomorrow. I'd rather eff up that hexpensive blade than have the tattoo on my belly get sewed all back up mismatched. I'll tell him to buy more new crap to build with, friend or no friend.
Do nothing, stay ahead.

The camera is only there to allow you to make a better quality stuff up with this high quality failure . (pick an angle, any angle and it'll still cut 48 degrees.")

Cool saw but still not as acurate as my good ol eyeball on a pencil mark;D
The bitterness of poor quality, lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten.
