Cause: me being a f****** moron. I was using the nice miter gauge and it wasn’t until AFTER I triggered the sawstop that I noticed the “Make sure to adjust so it doesn’t touch the blade” message taped to the back. Just pure, unadulterated idiocy from moving too quickly.
I’ve never triggered the SawStop before, so I’m unsure of the protocol. Luckily there was another cartridge in the closet and another blade so I brought the saw back into operation immediately after. But I don’t know where or how or how much money I need to pay because of my dumb mistake, I only know that I have a responsibility to replace them.
Can someone point me in the right direction? I’d appreciate it. I hung the locked up cartridge up on the wall to publicize my shame.
