She tested her SawStop.

Barry Irby
I was talking to a young woman woodworker yesterday and she has a SawStop. She said something about the throat plate was red and so was her saw blade. She was wearing earbuds, accidentally touched the blade and fired the cartridge. Said the earbuds did such a good job of muffling the explosion she almost did not realize what had happened. Picked a little piece of callous off the side of her finger and was good to go.

Two or three things to think may have had something to do with the earbuds that distracted her. From experience, even if she had to pay for the cartridge and the blade, that was cheap, really cheap, the saw paid for itself. And maybe the red on red wasn't a good idea. First person I have met that actually "used" the SawStop feature.
