... You don't see it, notice it or think about it until after the incident and then you think whoa, that just saved me." –Dr. Reid Mueler, hand surgeon.
SawStop is recognized by the industry, as well as its consumers as
North America’s #1 Saw
Hobbyists, contractors, cabinet makers, DIY’ers, celebrities and educators choose SawStop everyday. It’s the no-compromise SawStop engineering that makes them choose these saws. The safety comes first, and is followed by unmatched quality, precision and meticulous engineering. SawStop saws are built to last, built to cut, and built to protect.
When SawStop appeared on the market in 2005, the saws took the industry by storm. We addressed a problem that seemed unsolvable, and that most had accepted as the norm. Media large and small, from Time Magazine to bloggers across the internet lauded this amazing marriage of innovation and quality.
Table saws cause tens of thousands of serious injuries every year. In fact, there is a table saw accident in the United States every 9 minutes, and 10 amputations every single day. The societal cost of these injuries is in the billions of dollars, and the impact on victims cannot be counted.
SawStop minimizes these injuries by stopping the blade within 5 milliseconds of contact. That is ten times faster than a car’s airbag. Ten times faster than your reflexes can respond to danger.
"It flung my finger. I couldn't turn the saw off because I was in shock."
"Table saws are not forgiving ... You have to live with this the rest of your life."
