There are a lot of Sawstop reviews both here on LJ’s and on Youtube and other places. Everyone says that it is a quality item and has the infamous safety feature. I’ve only had my new Saw for a couple of weeks and made a few dozen cuts with it and you already know about the saw in general having seen the hotdog videos I’m sure, but there’s more to point out. Some companies have a different philosophy. What comes to mind are companies like Tesla. Get the best enginee...

Mixed review after 1st month of use

Mixed review after 1st month of use

04-07-2017 07:14 PM by Elwyn24601 | 8 comments »

I will try and keep this somewhat short and as sweet as I can. the TL;DR will be at the bottom in the form of pro’s and cons. My background: I am a 25 year old chemist by day and recently a woodworker by night, I grew up doing stage-craft so I and wood have a long, on again off again, relationship (the off again parts due mostly do uncertain living conditions and lack of funds). The Search: I started looking at the ridgid r4512 as a starting point, so as any self respecting millen...

SawStop customer service fail becomes big success

SawStop customer service fail becomes big success

02-23-2017 04:24 PM by leftcoaster | 66 comments »

UPDATE SawStop came through as a result of this post and while the sales team was initially flummoxed (“this is unprecedented. I will have to get back to you.”) when I called about Mr. Gass’ gracious offer, they did come through and I am happily using my overarm dust collector. Cut some MDF yesterday and performance was excellent. Many thanks to SawStop – I look forward to using your product for many years to come. I bought a sawstop PCS 3hp last week. Today I recei...

Right out of the box and pretty impressive machine: PROS:T-squre fenceExcellent directions on set upPretty Good dust collection.Overall a solid machineOBVIOUSLY THE SAFETY FEATURE (which can be turned off.) CONS:Needs really aggressive dust collection or the interior gets messyLittle plastic on switch is too easy to lose.My 1.75 hp is a bit underpowered for me.Won’t allow you to use a molding head but I never do anyway.The support legs for the table extension need more lateral sup...

Preliminary review with useful shipping carton size information

Preliminary review with useful shipping carton size information

01-04-2017 06:44 PM by Jeff Mazur | 18 comments »

This isn’t a full review – haven’t even opened the box yet – but I want to post it in order to help others who may have had my same concerns about the size of the carton. FYI, the saw came shipped with cartons and pallet in EXTREMELY good condition (vendor was Woodcraft, shipped via UPS.) So, so far, 5 star experience with a happy surprise, read on for the surprise… My concern was about whether I could get the saw all the way into my workshop without having ...

Not nearly as good as it could be

Not nearly as good as it could be

I recently purchased a SawStop 3hp PCS with the overarm dust collection. I replaced a Jet hybrid saw where I had upgraded the stock blade guard to a Shark guard and had been very happy with the results. I was hopeful the SawStop overarm dust collection would be as well designed, and operate as well as the rest of the saw. Unfortunately, it doesn’t. The SawStop overarm dust collection has a small hose that connects to it, and that narrows to nearly nothing as it goes into the blade...

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

SawStop PCS175 with 36" T-Rail - 6 Month Review

05-05-2016 05:28 PM by Matt | 15 comments »

I purchased this saw after finally committing to building out my long dreamed about woodshop. I had a bunch of contractor/jobsite grade tools and didn’t really have any experience with professional grade WW tools. Background: (I’m a hobbyist) Originally I had purchased a Ridgid R4510 (R45101) and it failed while trying to rip 12/4 poplar. Sure…... it was a lot for it to cut, but what’s the point of a blade height of 3 1/4” when it can’t cut that much...

Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

Sawstop epic fail with UPS in close second

03-26-2016 04:59 AM by mummykicks | 18 comments »

So I’d love to offer an detailed review of my new sawstop sliding crosscut table with my brand new pcs, except it appears impossible to get one shipped to my residence intact. The saw I got, no issues, crosscut table, not so much. The first one came in a box that looked like it was dropped of the back of a truck, multiple times and had been run over for good measure. UPS sucks, I thought. Open it up and the corners of the table and the fence were dinged, like you would expect if you ...

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

I bought a SawStop JSS-MCA

02-23-2016 04:23 AM by Dark_Lightning | 26 comments »

I bought it today, after I found out that the Bosch REAXX GTS1041A isn’t going to be available for awhile yet, and I wanted to get a safer saw now, not whenever. The point of this post is to look at positive solutions you have come up with for MY alleged problems with the saw I just bought. That said- #1. The miter gauge is loose in the slots. (.010” “slop”). Yes, I know it is a contractor’s saw (edit to add- yes that is a Job Site Saw). I had expected better,...

Initial Review - Impression

Initial Review - Impression

02-18-2016 03:06 PM by Kalison | 12 comments »

Hello, Long time lurker and first time poster. I picked up my SawStop Jobsite Saw about a month ago, maybe just a little more than a month ago… so I thought I would share my initial impressions of the saw. I began my tablesaw days with a skil saw jobsite saw… which was the first and worst saw that I have ever bought. I used it enough to finish a simple project or two, and then I put it in the corner. Accuracy, Repeatability and Reliability were all very poor… but,...
