Why SawStop?

By now, you've heard about SawStop's finger saving technology. Did you know that it’s also the best quality table saw on the market? After 26 years of selling woodworking machinery, we'd buy one even without the safety feature. Here’s why:

  • • The quality, fit and finish are superior to any saw we’ve ever sold.
  • • You won't find sharp corners, grinder marks or ugly welds.
  • • The trunion assembly is extra heavy, and making adjustments like aligning the table are easy and very well explained in the manual.
  • • The blade guard works so well that you’ll actually want to use it. If you can't use the guard, swap to the riving knife which takes about 10 seconds to install.
  • • SawStop accessories are well-designed and make the saw work better.
  • • Mobile bases allow the saw to sit directly on the floor, and a convenient foot pedal engages the wheels.
  • • Overarm Dust Collection allows for 99.9% dust removal, as it collects from both above and below the blade.
  • • Every saw also includes the best written manual in the industry.

These points, plus technology that eliminates the opportunity to separate you from your fingers, makes the decision to buy a SawStop an easy one.

FAQ

All SawStop saws ship via common carrier and will arrive in a semi-trailer. Residential and lift gate services are included.
Orders received before noon typically ship the same day.
We only collect sales tax on orders shipped within the state of Ohio. If you reside in the state of Ohio, and have blanket exemption certificate, we'll gladly honor that.
The truck which delivers your saw will have a hydraulic lift-gate to lower your saw to the ground. While not required, the drivers are typically willing to help you roll your saw a short distance into your garage or shop.
The brake cartridges sell for $69 and can be found here. We'd encourage you to keep an extra cartridge or two on hand.
It takes about a minute to change a SawStop brake cartridge, here's a quick video showing the process:
SawStop saws cut most wet wood without a problem. However, if the wood is very green or wet (for example, wet enough to spray a mist when cutting), or if the wood is both wet and pressure treated, then the wood may be sufficiently conductive to activate the brake. If you are unsure whether the material you need to cut is conductive, you can make test cuts using Bypass Mode to determine if it will activate the safety system’s brake. The red light on the control box will flash to indicate conductivity.
Yes. You can operate the saw in Bypass Mode which deactivates the safety system’s braking feature, allowing you to cut aluminum, very wet/green wood (see above) and other known conductive materials.
If you are unsure whether the material you need to cut is conductive, you can make test cuts using Bypass Mode to determine if it will activate the safety system’s brake. The red light on the control box will flash to indicate conductivity.
Generally, the safety system will not activate when a nail or staple is cut. Although conductive, these objects are not large enough to cause the safety system to activate unless they are grounded to the table or operator when they contact the blade.
When the safety system activates, it will sometimes damage one or more teeth on the blade. Some users discard and replace the blade, while others choose to have their blades inspected/repaired by a qualified specialist.
