The result was that he lost the tip of his middle finger and scarring on his index finger.

We have outgrown our third headquarters, and are moving to a new, much larger home this week.

Effective February 1st, USA prices on most SawStop saws and many SawStop accessories will increase.

We continue to refuse to cut corners or compromise our dedication to product quality and customer care. After holding the line on prices for over a decade, we must make an adjustment to account for more than a decade of material, shipping and other cost increases. Our last price increase on saws was in 2008!

We don't like raising our prices, and we don't plan to make it a habit.

Price increases will vary by model and accessory. Some examples, expect the Contractor Saw to increase by $100, the Professional Cabinet Saw to increase by $150, and the Industrial Cabinet Saw to increase by $150-200 (the Jobsite Saw will not increase).

Thank you for your understanding and your support. For more information on expected price increases, please contact your local SawStop dealer.

Thank you,
Your friends at SawStop
