    The lumberyard where I used to live got a saw stop for free. Their insurance and the state workman's comp each paid half. It was a bargain all the way around.

    You might do the reset command. I have had the speed and acceleration values go wonky and cause symptoms like stuttering. I don't remember if the stutter happened in one or both directions.
