    I hope you had an extinguisher... i know that they can tend to be expensive. I have already admitted some of my stupid mistakes here on the board, however if there is one thing that I am overly cautions of that is the chance of a fire. If you look around you can find a large CO2 extinguisher for a good price. Also great for discouraging large attack dogs from trying to make you a snack.

      If it's a new saw, the dealer should be looking for a new saw to give you, not a new motor.
