SawStop is the best quality saw you can choose. From day one, we have focused on ensuring that choosing a SawStop is an upgrade to your entire woodworking experience. But don’t take our word for it. Listen to and read what owners say about their SawStop saws:
My new SawStop was by far the best and easiest power tool assembly I have ever undertaken. The level of detail and accuracy of the instructions and the thought and care that went into the packaging were superb. I have been a human factors engineer for the Department of Defense for 35 years, so I think I know something about design. That’s only the third best thing about the saw. The second best thing is the precision of the parts that allowed me put the saw together easily and also allows me to set up the saw with precision so that the cuts come out just as I plan. The best part of course is the safety, which is the reason my wife encouraged me to purchase the SawStop in the first place.

Overall, I am extremely impressed by the design. The fit and finish are very nice and it is definitely a well-made machine. While obviously the brake is a key selling point, I have heard in the past, though I didn’t believe it at the time, that it is a great saw even without the brake – having used it I can now agree.

I’d been looking at getting your saw for a couple of years. My uncle and his best friend have been avid woodworkers all their lives, and are still active. Each of them recently, on the same day and within twenty minutes of each other, managed to slice the tip off of a finger using their table saws. I recognize a sign when I see it.
How good is this saw? My current project has a book-matched curly maple back. I rip-sawed the two pieces to fit on the SawStop. The resulting joint was perfect for gluing ‘as was.’ An absolutely remarkable piece of equipment.

The fit and finish of this saw is far superior to any other contractor saw on the market. SawStop took the time to really improve the standard design. This is the Cadillac of contractor saws. SawStop thought of everything. I could not be more satisfied with my purchase.
Trent T.; Maryland
I’ve had my new saw for a while now and I wanted to let you know that it is an incredibly well made machine. I had a Powermatic 66 for the last 10 years and don’t miss it even slightly. Thank you very much for a phenomenal machine.

No comparison…SawStop is way ahead of the competition. It is definitely in a class of its own. If you wanted to buy my saw back, you would have to offer me more than I paid for it. Put me down as a satisfied customer.
Ernest P.; North Carolina
The saw is extremely well made and the optional T-Glide fence is terrific.
Louis M.; California
It is unreservedly the best table saw I have ever used. Just the peace of mind we have knowing that our kids are “safe” from amputation is worth it. Apart from the safety aspect, the saw is quality, quality, quality. Even down to the manual.Our previous saw was a relatively recent General Int. cabinet saw. Next to your product, it’s junk. Congratulations on a truly excellent product.

"Just a small nick on his thumb and not a more serious injury. As a responsible employer, we rest more easily knowing we have safer machinery for our workers."
"Pretty amazing that I only had to put on a band-aid."
"The blade did exactly what you designed it to do. It sure is going to be nice having my finger. Thanks SawStop!"
Carl S., Arkansas
"I didn't even know I touched the blade."
"Some stacked material fell over and pushed my hand into the blade. SawStop saved my finger and allowed me to avoid a costly trip to the hospital."
Doug J - Texas
"We had our first "save" yesterday. It can happen to anyone."
Mark from California
"Avoid accidents to you and your family. Probably the best purchase I have ever made."
"I purchased my saw because I believe in safety then found it was the finest saw I had owned. Far more luxury than many would expect from a contractor's saw."
"Thank you SawStop for saving my finger! The blade stopped immediately."
"An absolutely remarkable piece of equipment. This technology is revolutionary."
