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:
The fit and finish is excellent!

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, and stitches were not necessary. [The SawStop] 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.

Love this machine! It cross cuts smoothly and rips oak and maple easily with a glue line quality!
This saw has to be the finest mobile job saw I've ever used… best job saw ever!
Peter A. Surette; Middleton, MA
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.

First table saw I've ever purchased since all the others I've seen posed a significant risk to my livelihood.
Frank Webb; Snohomish, WA
I am a very satisfied customer… and I feel MUCH safer in my shop.
Jay Siegelaub; Ossining, NY
I wanted the best 10 inch saw on the market.
Sorry Powermatic and Delta, even without 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.

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.

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
The saw performs FAR better than even the most favorable commentary and reviews led me to believe. It is FANTASTIC! I have been working with mesquite recently -- twice as hard as oak -- and my old saw, even with a newly sharpened blade, led to burning and smoking. On my SawStop, it cuts like it was basswood. Amazing! The saw is quiet, smooth, precise, and incredibly easy to use. I love the fence, which is by far the easiest to set and the most solid of any I have. I am thrilled Thrilled THRILLED! I have never written an unsolicited comment on a product I bought until now, but this is just fabulous stuff. I should have done this years ago.

"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."
