When you say "Midi 1", do you mean the original MIDI with the control knobs, or the MIDI-I with the Bluetooth and touch panel?

The MIDI should keep running up to 3-5 seconds after a cut to clear the hose, but if this started happening recently I'm guessing you already knew that and it runs longer.

Which saw are you using?

What happens if you pull the saw's plug from the MIDI after the cut?  Will it stop?

Do you have another tool you can use to see if it's a tool issue or a MIDI issue?
