Sawstop and Router Cabinet / Infeed Table / Outfeed Table Project

1278 days ago by zzzzdoc | 461 comments »

At the very start, let me give all the credit in the world to Tedth66, whose project this is totally based on, and who has been graciously providing guidance as I build this. This is a modification of his design, adding a few details, and making it work for my shop. I have a 2 car garage / workshop that is tremendously space challenged, so I need to be clever about every square inch. On top of that, I enjoy modifying designs and making them work custom for me. So when I saw Ted’s ...

Table Saw Router Station for SawStop Contractor Saw

146 days ago by Spencer | 30 comments »

Taking inspiration from zzzzdoc, tedth66, Jeremy Greiner, and others (here, here, and here), I am setting out on a mission to create a Table Saw Station for my SawStop Contractor saw. The reasons for the project are similar to theirs: I need more storage space in my small shop, I’d like a robust stand for the saw that’s easy to move around, and their’s look really cool! I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about this and many hours mocking up ideas and dimensions i...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #15: Sawstop

2356 days ago by MsDebbieP | 27 comments »

Last month, while at the Woodstock Wood Show I had the opportunity to check out the SawStop table saw and chat with Eric Gewiss, the Marketing Manager. The HistorySteve Gass, Ph.D., a woodworker himself, invented the SawStop technology in 2000. Mr. Gass met with existing manufacturers to have them include his SawStop in their product lines, but did not have any success. After a couple of years of trying, he, along with David Fulmer and David Fanning, built their own table saw and in 2004 ...

How Can I Not Buy a Sawstop?

1577 days ago by Kacy | 19 comments »

Warning … the following is just me thinking out loud (or, actually, in type), and the rambling nature of the post pretty accurately reflects that status of my brain on holiday! I’ve been thinking about moving to a real (i.e., not a bench top) table saw for some time now, probably every since I moved to working with rough-sawn feedstock for my projects. I initially was going to do all of the straightening and flattening work with hand tools, which wasn’t too bad for wood ...

SawStop or not? #2: Do you really want to trust your fingers to electronics that might fail?

42 days ago by Rob | 18 comments »

One of the arguments I’ve seen is about whether people should really trust the electronics. For better or worse, that ship has already sailed. We already know that we put our lives on the line every time we hop in a car. Although our safety is largely dependent on our own actions as drivers and the actions of other people, modern safety systems such as anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control improve your chances of avoiding or surviving an accident. In the ideal situation,...

SawStop Cures the Idiot!!

1255 days ago by DrAllred | 15 comments »

Well, I love the SawStop Table Saw, Technology is just absolutely great. So this is the story, and I am still able to type with all of my fingers, but one is a bit painful to do so. I was in the shop, working on some small projects that I have been toying with and making jigs to create them in an easier way than just brute force. I had just finished recovering a lot of 1.5” plywood from a pallet I got from work. In doing so I had to use the riving knife on the table saw as the gu...

Amazing Tools #8: SAWSTOP on TimeWarp

1583 days ago by Gary Fixler | 14 comments »

There’s a show on Discovery called “TimeWarp” which uses super high speed cameras to slow down all matter of phenomena to show what’s going on in the physical world at micro timescales. They had a call for entries after one episode and it got me to thinking that I’d love to see various woodworking things slowed down. Apparently they had the same idea last year, but I missed it. They put the SAWSTOP under the cameras, and the inventor even tried it on his own fing...

Shop Update #2: Finally - A Serious Saw!

985 days ago by Dave | 14 comments »

I finally saved up enough to buy a cabinet saw that can handle everything I’ll be able to throw at it for many years to come. My old Ridgid TS2410LS is a great saw, but it doesn’t have the cutting capacity for big jobs, it’s dusty, and it’s LOUD. My new saw is a 3HP Saw Stop Professional Cabinet Saw with the 36” fence, industrial mobile base, and overarm dust collection. I won’t bother doing another review of it – the ones on here are pretty accu...
