A table saw accident happens once every nine minutes in North America.  SawStop’s revolutionary safety system reduces what could be a potentially life-changing injury into a scratch by stopping the spinning blade on contact with skin.

  1. 1 Detect

    • The blade carries a small electrical signal.
    • When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes because the human body is conductive.
    • The change to the signal activates the safety system.

SawStop Brand Promise

More than 20 years ago, a physicist and passionate woodworker had an idea to make a safer table saw. The result was innovation that changed woodworking forever – a patented safety system that stops the spinning blade on contact with skin.

With this new technology in place, we wanted to set a new standard for what a table saw should be. While others relied on 40-year-old designs, our engineers seized the opportunity to bring saw design, build, and quality into a new era. A saw that is engineered from the ground up to deliver unmatched accuracy, durability, and power. No compromises. From the heaviest, most powerful 10″ Industrial Cabinet Saw, to the portable Jobsite Saw Pro, SawStop has a table saw to fit any woodworker’s needs.

Table Saw Accident Victims

These woodworkers have honored us with their stories. Please take a moment to listen.

Two Accidents in One Month

Joe M. (woodworker)

Joe, now retired, worked for 30 years as a general contractor. Joe had two accidents in a one month period doing woodworking as a hobbyist. As result of the accident, he no longer has feeling in the tips of his fingers on his left hand, and his right hand appears deformed.

Amputation of Finger

Brandan S. (hobbyist)

“It flung my finger. I couldn’t turn the saw off because I was in shock.”

Amputation of Multiple Fingers

Nick C. (hobbyist)

“I’ve been doing this for years and never been hurt. That evening I spent 14 hours in surgery.”

SawStop in Action

SawStop Users Are Glad To Have Safety In Their Shop

John M (woodworker)

Without the SawStop, I would probably have a thumb that is ¼” shorter. 

Jim M. (hobbyist)

I had no marks. I had no blood. Thank you SawStop!

Anonymous Worker (woodworker)

Thank you SawStop for saving my finger! The blade stopped immediately.

Mick D. (home-builder)

Far more luxury than many would expect from a contractor’s saw.

Mark (diyer)

Avoid accidents to you and your family. Probably the best purchase I have ever made.

Doug J. (cabinet-maker)

We had our first “save” yesterday. It can happen to anyone.
