I saw the demo on the net what is your guys comment , I mean you must have one or have tried it.
My reason for asking is that I want to buy myself a decent table saw, and when I have a look what you have avaidable in the USA i simply drool. Please I could use some advice because I am thinking about importing one from the states and I am in SA and with the rand dollar exchange it is going to cost me about R 12000-00 I know it is not a lot in dollars but for me it is a small fortune,I will even settle for a 2nd hand decent table saw if I can find one with import duties etc…....... you know what I am getting at

Hey Rauterbach
I don’t have a SAW STOP but have read many great reviews and would like one my self. I’m just wondering if your power source is compatible with a US saw.

Safety issues apart (the moment I bought one I know this will be my saw) all reviews are great. There are a few LJ who own one also, make a search on the site for the many posts and some reviews related.

I don’t know whether you wrote R12.000 or R1.200.000 but R12.000 would be $1,514 as of today. And that is awfully inexpensive for a SawStop.

Go check their web because they do sell abroad also and they have a 240V Euro version. Good luck and keep us posted about the outcome.

Thank you a1 Jim and Jojo and will keep you posted on the outcome but my point is I have a very inferior little table saw and if I buy a semi decent one in SA it is going to cost me in rands 7500 to 11500 then I might as well save some money and buy a decent one from the start I reckon that makes good sense
