A better saw than I thought it would be

A better saw than I thought it would be

133 days ago by bonesbr549 | 25 comments »

I will not go over the safety side of the tool nor the politics as those have been beat to death. Well I’ve been lusting for a SS since they first came out, but being out of my budget started a savings fund. My Grizzly 1023SLX had served me well but I wanted to upgrade and really like the safety feature. With the last project providing a significant bump in my $$, I bit the bullet and ordered it back in early Feb. It supposed to be delivered on a Friday and it dumped a foot of snow. ...

SawStop Overarm Dust Collection - worth it, but flawed connection

SawStop Overarm Dust Collection - worth it, but flawed connection

137 days ago by Kenyon94 | 9 comments »

Someone asked me a follow-up question on my review of my SawStop 3HP PCS, and I thought it would be worth it to answer it in a standalone review for others to see. I’d noted in my review that I had to buy a different connection for the overarm dust collection assembly, which is one of the optional accessories with the SawStop table saws. In general, I really like the extra dust collection capabilities of this accessory – for most cuts, there’s just no dust left over on th...

Pricey but excellent

Pricey but excellent

145 days ago by Purrmaster | 6 comments »

This review is for the SawStop contractor’s saw equipped with the 36” inch steel rails and “T-glide” fence. And eventually with the cast iron wings. As a preface let me say that I know that SawStop is controversial among woodworkers. This review is not an argument for or against the SawStop safety system. This review concentrates on its qualities as a table saw, not the safety brake. I’ve had this saw for over a year now and I’ve been extremely ple...

The Greatest Birthday Present / Bonus in History

The Greatest Birthday Present / Bonus in History

147 days ago by Kenyon94 | 22 comments »

I feel guilty posting the backstory on this, but the story needs to be told. I just started into woodworking four months ago. First, I built a workbench with some basic handheld powertools and was generally obsessed with my new hobby. In early January, I was with my business partner who happens to be my longtime best friend and I was once again talking about all the stuff I wanted to build and the tools I wanted to buy. He asked me what my dream purchase was, and I showed him the SawStop hot ...

SawStop 3HP 10-inch Cabinet Saw with 36" T-Glide Fence

SawStop 3HP 10-inch Cabinet Saw with 36" T-Glide Fence

217 days ago by Scomel Basses | 10 comments »

Back story: When I purchased a Grizzly 1023RLW earlier this year, I actually wanted the SawStop 3HP Professional. I did so, as many of us have, because of the price of the Grizzly and the fact that it is a fantastic saw. I told myself that I’d get the Grizzly, use the money I saved from not buying the SawStop for other tools, and just be extra careful. To date, I have not had an accident on a table saw after years of use. By using all the typical safety techniques, I haven’t even ...

Excellent Quality, Anxiety Gone, Cost a Non-Factor

Excellent Quality, Anxiety Gone, Cost a Non-Factor

281 days ago by NickyP | 41 comments »

I just got back into wood working a little over a year ago and bought a very nice used Delta Contractor Saw. I had no issues with the power and attributes of a fine running machine. A fine running machine I operated for over a year without a blade guard (SHAME on me!) as my respect of the saw’s power was high and my fear was low on using this machine. I was ripping about a 12” wide board in half that was about a foot long. The wood rose up and kicked back, hitting me square in the...

SawStop Customer Service A+++

SawStop Customer Service A+++

436 days ago by SKlaus | 11 comments »

Hey everybody, just wanted to inform you all of my experience this afternoon with a sawstop rep in case you are looking into investing in a new table saw or have to call for some help with the one you have. I have an older model contractor saw and I just ordered the dado brake through amazon.com. Well I was setting it up to cut, and kept getting a series of lights indicating that the brake was either to far away or to close the blade. I was not able to get it zoned in just right. So aft...

The SawStop ICS base is wonderful saw base, but comes just short of 5*

The SawStop ICS base is wonderful saw base, but comes just short of 5*

444 days ago by gtbuzz | 6 comments »

OverviewIn short, this is an absolutely wonderful base that I love using with my SawStop 3HP cabinet saw, however I do have a few nits that keep this from being a 5 star product. Having said that though, if anyone else is in a similar situation to me, I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend the industrial base over the standard professional base. For those that are unaware, SawStop makes two different mobile bases for their cabinet saws, one designed for the Professional models...

SawStop Review

SawStop Review

446 days ago by Dan Katz | 26 comments »

Hi Guys, I recently posted that I had pulled the plug on my old Delta Contactors saw.For my 64th birthday my Dad who is 90 bought me a new SawStop.Since I don’t have any insurance I convinced him that it would be a good investment. It was purchased through Highland Woodworking in Atlanta.Everything arrived in perfect shape.I planned on using my Incra TSLS fence, so ordered the shorter Pro-Glide. Sawstop will not sell a PCS without a fence. (ICS maybe)Set up was easy. Attaching the ca...
