Wait and hope. The brand is still new and rare enough that it is uncommon to find on Craigslist or auction sites. Combine that with the issue that it is very expensive and unlikely to be in a hobbyist shop means that you’d have to find a production environment that is going out of business.

I fear you have to wait a long time before you find a good used one.

Most used tools were originally purchased by someone who thought they would like to try woodworking and later found out it was not for them or the original owner has died or became unable to use the tool anymore. Those candidates for selling used tools probably don’t have sawstops.

I agree most Saw Stop owners are not going to let go of their saws. I think if you want one a new one is the best option.

About 2years ago, I actually ran across a craigslist listing for an industrial Sawstop. So you may run into one, but as everyone says, if you come across one, it would be a real find.
