Updates on table saw search?

  • John--Indianapolis table saw on Craigslist seems like a good buy, some other craigslist sellers have not responded.
    • It's up on the wiki if you want to see specs.
    • Table saw was $850.
  • Some discussion of table saws followed
  • Clarified that Sawstop is a certain brand of saw, with nice safety features (stops itself when it encounters finger)
    • Ian talked to Sawstop--they will probably give us a discount as a nonprofit.
    • Ian will contact them to find out how much
    • Ryan--used Sawstops are hard to find
    • Sawstops come at a price premium , probably $4K plus. Significantly more than the proposed $1K table saw budget.
    • Jason showed a sawstop video.

More Discussion of Sawstop followed.

  • How sensitive is it? Will it cut wet wood? etc
  • Ian--there is no savings in insurance with the SawStop.
  • Jon--Safety is great, but also consider that we could get a nicer saw in all other respects for a lower price.
  • Dave--Shop tool committee should have more clear directions. What is the price point?
  • Ian--if you want to be on the Shop Tool Committee Email List, please sign on! [1]

Discussion was ended, with more discussion by interested individuals after meeting.


Mike: DIYBio

  • Recap--Mike is interested in setting up a DIYbio workshop, using Genomikon kit to let participants engineer a colorful bacteria
  • This would probably be ~$500 to set up. $30 per parcicipant. Are enough people interested to make up the cost?
    • Just a few people raised hands.
  • Dave--more explanation of what this is/the purpose would be helpful
  • Mike would like to do a January "2nd Tuesday" talk on this subject
