"I wanted the best North American style 10 inch saw on the market.
Sorry Powermatic and Delta, even with out the technology the SawStop has them beat. The controls alone are akin to spinning the wheel of a bank safe, smooth and effortless. This saw screams quality. Out of the box alignment…perfect. Table and cast iron wings, ditto. Folks if I could find fault somewhere, I wouldn’t hesitate to let you know."
"Your service department is great and tech support is fantastic. I would like to add that the SawStop saw is finest saw we have used. I would highly recommend it to everyone. We have in the past used Craftsman, Powermatic and Northfield and the SawStop is far above them in quality and safety."
"I really like this saw! Not only does my SawStop provide me insurance against injury, but this saw is really well built! It is obvious that a lot of thought went into the design. It has a lot more cast iron than my other well known cabinet saw, with a larger table and fence, and it runs exceptionally smoothly. It has a convenient, easy to use mechanism to change the guard and riving knife, a smooth and accurate fence, and I like the dust collection hookup and the big paddle on/off switch. All the little things that went into the design add up to a saw well worth the money."
"I just wanted to tell you that it is unreservedly the best table saw I have ever used. It is expensive compared to other cabinet saws but it is worth every penny. 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. I just love starting up that saw and running lumber through it knowing that the riving knife or the blade guard are doing their job without compromising the accuracy of the cut. Our previous saw was a relatively recent General Int. cabinet saw. Next to your product, it’s junk. I just wish we could buy all of our saws with this technology. Congratulations on a truly excellent product. It’s a tool I actually look forward to working with."
"I had a brand new 5 hp Powermatic saw delivered to the shop but never plugged in. After seeing the saw in Atlanta, I signed up, returned home and sold the Powermatic at a slight loss and waited for my SawStop to arrive. I have owned a SawStop for about 1 /1/2 years. It was the smartest tool purchase I have ever made."
"As the Construction teacher at Swift Current Comprehensive High School and a Journeyman Carpenter, I was relieved to have one of our four SawStop saws, do as it should when a student came in contact with the blade. He was ripping a piece of spruce stock and his support hand came in contact with the blade."
"The cut was just below the first knuckle of the thumb and in my opinion, had it been any other saw, he would have lost it. The injury consisted of a slight cut, which the medical professionals saw fit to glue back together with crazy glue, as stitches were not necessary. The reason for our desire to share this story is due to our complete satisfaction with the product. It has made our school a safer place to work and learn. In 20 years of using table saws, these saws are the finest operating saws I have used and seen; the added technology truly makes them superior to any other. I look forward to the release of the SawStop band saws in the hopes that we can incorporate them in to our safer work environment. With Thanks,"
"I just wanted to drop a line to you guys and let you know how much I love this saw. It would be worth its purchase price even without the brake. It’s fit and finish is unparalleled. When I first went to look at one at dealer in Virginia, they had it sitting on the showroom floor next to a Delta Unisaw and the Unisaw looked cheap and shoddy compared to your product. I’ve had it for several months now and it lives up to every expectation. It’s truly the “Rolls Royce” of table saws."
"I’ve had my new saw for awhile 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."
