WOW! That is one of the best looking table saw setups I’ve seen. Great saw and much more safe than most.

Sandhill – Progress made, but chair orders tend to occupy my time. Not finished yet, but I am hopeful for this year. I work on it whenever I have a spare moment.

Doordude – Good question. My father-in-law recently had an accident with his tablesaw, promptly removing 2 fingers. This, and the fact that I have heard great things about the quality of the SawStop, made me consider it as a replacement for my aging Unisaw. I am pleasantly surprised about the quality of this machine. It has much less vibration than my older saw, and the safety features made it an easy choice for me. I hope this answers your question.

Thanks everyone!

Great saw, congrats. I have one suggestion – place out plugs in those extra outlets, before they get dust or other wood material in them. Someone I know was cutting treated lumber, that was still somewhat wet, well in the outlet some went and shorted the circuit

Thanks Norm! Great suggestion.

Lucio – I think you mean that “slide”, meaning the sliding table? Well, I bought mine many years ago, so what I paid would not be relevant. You can check them out at General Tools, who now owns the Excalibur brand. I believe the saws do come in 230v options.

BTW – This saw is awesome. After using it, I am even more impressed (if that were possible).

Scott, I have the 230 v Industrial version, and love the hell out of it. The quality of these saws are second to none, no matter what all the “haters” out there say about them. The more you use it, the more you will enjoy it. The safety feature is just a bonus on a great tablesaw.

Great choice on likely the last saw you will ever buy.
