At work, it is company policy to NEVER reuse a blade that has been involved in a sawstop trigger.

I know I'm going to get beat up for even suggesting this, but how about 1/4" MDF or melamine. It will stay about as flat as anything else.

Post: RE: outdoor cabinet - wood movement planning

I think I would use pocket hole screws drilled in from underneath.  They wouldn't be visible and they would allow a bit of wiggle room, especially if you wallow the holes on the outer screws a bit.

Post: RE: MM16 starter switch question

Does your machine have micro switches on a lid, a door etc that when opened it will shut the machine down? Those switches will be low voltage and a link to the contactor on the starter.
