SawStop Contractor Table Saw w/52'' Fence, CNS175-TGP52

I love my SawStop. I have had it for 4 years, and would not think at all of using any other brand. It is time consuming to initially set up, but worth it. I have accidently triggered the blade, but I know that it works! It takes a little more time to switch to a Dado, as you have to change the cartridge. It cuts very well.

I have been using my SawStop 36" contractors saw for about four years-its great. I originally wanted the cabinet saw (not too much more money) but, given its weight, could not find a good way to get it down the stairs to my basement shop. In contrast, the contractors saw comes in pieces, which are much easier to handle. Fit and finish is excellent as advertised. Everything is built heavy and well. Alignment was perfect out of the box, and has stayed that way. The 1.75hp motor is completely adequate for almost all tasks. I have triggered the safety mechanism only once, when I allowed a metal tenoning jig to touch the blade at the bottom of a complicated compound-angle cut. It is a shock when it happens {sounds like a shotgun going off}-a real attention getter that makes you really focus on what you are doing going forward. One suggestion: the screw mechanism to raise and lower the blade is located directly behind and to the left of the blade where it collects caked-on saw dust, even with good dust collection. It requires frequent maintenance {vacuum, compressed air and then silicon spray}to keep it working smoothly. A simple metal deflector worked into the design would easily reduce or eliminate this problem. But, all in all, an expensive tool that is worth every dollar.

The finest table saw I have used thus far. I was a high school carpentry and engineering teacher for 12 years and have used many table saw brands in many categories. This saw by far is the safest and most accurate saw I have used. As a shop teacher I have seen some pretty amazingly crazy things and most of which have taken place near a large piece of dangerous equipment. After seeing the hotdog demonstration I was sold. I purchased 2 5hp Industrial cabinet saws and my stress levels went down. Safety is never compromised but accidents do happen and the insurance is worth it.

Even without the safety features, this saw is a top of the line deal. Add in the insurance that I'm not likely to have to have my wife open ketchup bottles for the rest of my life, and this saw is a no-brainer. I've had mine for 2+ years, and it is without a doubt the most solid, reliable, accurate tool in my shop.

 

About Sawstop

In a little more than a decade, SawStop has gone from a small startup offering a revolutionary saw-braking technology to a leading table-saw manufacturer whose acclaimed product line has saved thousands of woodworkers' fingers. SawStop's industry-first flesh-sensing technology causes the blade to stop and retract into the saw within milliseconds of contact, often leaving the operator with little more than a scratch – rather than a catastrophic injury. It was developed in 1999 by SawStop's founder, Steve Gass, a patent lawyer who also has a Ph.D. In physics. Since the first SawStop model hit the market in 2004, the Oregon company has developed models geared to meet the needs of hobbyist, professional and industrial woodworkers. The combined safety, quality and craftsmanship of SawStop table saws have won the brand a place in shops across the country and around the world.
