    Has anyone (Paul?) ever seen or used a digital tachometer?

    Ever since I read that Paul tests his saws with a tach I've been interested in trying it myself.

    The way these work is you stick a reflective piece of tape (provided) to the thing you are measuring (a blade in this case), and as it spins the laser picks up and counts the revolutions.
