I came really close to not purchasing the Sawstop, but in the end I ended up today going down to pick up the new PCS by Sawstop. It was pure safety for me and it was a quality tool. I will have to re-arragne my shop. I would of included a picture but this looks a little more complicated than I thought. Maybe I got the new Tablesaw on my mind. \

Mike, way to go! You’ll never be sorry you spent the money. I don’t have the sawstop, but do have the scares to remind me maybe I should. To me, your table saw is command central in your shop, so glad you got the best. Congrats!

I’m about this close to getting one, too, as soon as I can sell my POS contractor’s saw. It’s on Craigslist, but not even a nibble.

Congratulations, Mike. You have purchased a top notch saw that you will enjoy for years to come. Once you get it set up post some pictures of it in your shop.

I also got the Industrial Mobile Base, which should be here late this week. I also have to get the 220 put in to run the saw.

Alright Mike!!!! Way to go man!

I am very envious, but have promised myself that if the tax man is kind to me in April, I will be investing in the Sawstop PCS.

This is due in large part to the great review posted and person messages sent to me by Scott! If you are as happy with your saw as he appears to be, you will be very satisfied.

Be sure to post pics when you get it up and running in your shop.

After more than three decades in New Jersey we will be
moving hopefully sometime next year.

First order of business in setting up my new shop, a SawStop.

I had some tense moments and the sublime pleasure to run wood through the SawStop at a demo.
This is a quality machine.

If I don’t buy it, my wife will.

I got my PCS back in Aug when they came out. I’m very happy with the saw. It has the power I was looking for and runs very smooth. I’m sure everyone has heard about the duct collection, it is beyond amazing. I was wanting to work with it for a few months, before post a review on LJ. I think I’m ready to do the write-up now.
