"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’m very happy with my PCS. I was within days of purchasing a Powermatic 2000 when I got the email about the test program and I am very happy that I was able to participate. The saw is really superb, it’s a joy to use every day."
"I feel that Sawstop is providing premium level products with premium level support. The documentation and packaging of the equipment and the required hardware was a pleasant surprise. This level of detail was noticed and your products will be recommended by me to others."
"The purchase of this saw has raised the bar on all my other shop tools. I would never recommend anyone purchase a saw other than the sawstop. Other than some 100 year old (still in use) wind up clocks, and maybe my $2,000 hunting rifle, the quality of this product is unmatched at my home."
"I’m a happy camper and glad to recommend this saw to anyone. I am an Emergency Physician, and I’ve seen firsthand (no pun intended) several times over what a table saw can do to a hand- most recently last week. I didn’t need much convincing that I wanted a Sawstop, and the PCS was the right price point."
"I am happy as a clam with this instrument. I love precision, and good machine work and I think this saw is a bargain. As a physician, my hands are critical for me, and this is what prompted me to buy this saw rather than a Powermatic or Jet. If I lose a hand it’s going to take a major nick out of my professional career not to mention what it will do to my hobby."
"Quality is top notch. I had a Jet cabinet saw before this and the fit and finish of the SawStop is much higher. I could not get my old saw as aligned as this one was from the factory. I think the ease of the additional safety features, beyond than the safety system, are much easier to use, which means I will use them more."
