Betsy, this is a gorgeous saw. You have every right to glad that you added this to your shop.

Is this the Industrial Cabinet or the Professional Cabinet series saw?

That is a gorgeous saw and I am quite envious. I can’t wait to see what you think of using it.

Thanks guys. Scott – I went with the Industrial series.

Right now my first projects is to make some jigs to use with it. Then it’s back to my rocking chair. To bad the saw won’t make me a better craftsman – but sure will be fun to use.

Scotsman – I’ll have to check on the battery theory – you could very well be right.

Thanks again guys.

I don’t believe that SawStop makes a Proffessional Series Cabinet Saw, if they do, it isn’t listed in their website.

Thanks guys. I changed the blade that came with the saw to one my Freuds. I must say the blade changing is much easier than on my Delta. There’s more space to get your hands to the nut. I’m not sure how some of you big-pawed guys change blades without knocking your knuckles on the side of the throat. The other thing is that the wrenches are much bigger and padded – this gives you more gripping power and keeps your hands further from the blade so if you do slip you don’t run your hand down onto the sharp blade.

Great addition to any shop. I agree with keeping up the safety precautions. While it is worth the expense to save your digits from being separated from your hand, the parts to repair the saw if the safety feature is triggered is equal to a nice new router, hand planer or similar addition to your tools collection.
