The unboxing and setup is surprisingly simple, coming with clear and easy to follow instructions. A few steps benefit from having a second pair of hands, but if you have some sawhorses and a bit of creativity you can also do a lot of it solo. The alignment of the blade to the miter slots was close from the start, but making adjustments is also pretty simple.
I don’t want to treat the SawStop safety feature like some kind of magical protection, so I did lots of studying on how to make various cuts safely before I started. Any other first-timers should do the same, and remember to purchase or make push blocks or sticks that you will be comfortable using (I’m using a Grrr-iper). The push stick that comes with the saw really isn’t enough on its own.
I would definitely recommend this saw to a first-timer who can afford it (and who has the space). Why do your learning on a “starter” saw that isn’t going to be as reliable?

There was nothing wrong with that saw and I had spent the time to calibrate it so it made very accurate and repeatable cuts.
The only reason for me to replace that saw was to get the SawStop safety feature.
In January 2019 I decided to go ahead and make the purchase.
I figured if I was going to spend this much on a saw I should go ahead and get the 3hp motor as well as the ICS base.
The saw came very well calibrated, the blade / table are parallel / square with less than 0.001" error as measured with a dial indicator and jigs.
I really didn't expect the user experience to be any different than using the Delta saw but I am very pleasantly surprised.
Everything about the SawStop is more substantial, smoother, heavier, .... it's just a better machine.
I also didn't know if I would notice the extra horse power but even cutting 1" hardwoods the extra power is quite noticeable.
I don't think about the blade brake feature much at all, but the riving knife is always right there and having it really does give me greater confidence that kickback will not happen.
I know all modern saws have the riving knife but this is my first experience with one and SawStop really got it right.
It's heavy duty, does not interfere with any of the cuts or the Grrripper push pads, and it's very easy to put on / take off.
The brake cartridge is also easy to swap out for the dado stack.
I don't have anything negative to say about this machine.
If you're on the fence about getting one of these I encourage you to go ahead and do it.
Sawstop put a lot of energy into the user experience of receiving and assembling this saw. The hardware is color coded and individually blister packed and the manual is spiral bound, and contains many pictures and simple, easy-to-follow instructions. The setup was a breeze.
Right out of the gate, the tolerances are impressive. Any saw will require some degree of fine-tuning after assembly, but those adjustments have been minimal.
The only noteworthy downsides are that I had a little difficultly in implementing the Industrial-series components with the Professional Series saw (But these were eventually solved) and the safety system means that one has to be more careful and deliberate about evaluating the work-piece for any characteristics that can trip the brake. I inadvertently tripped the brake on day #2 - which destroyed the brand new blade that came with the saw and the cartridge.
Live and learn.
With the aforementioned component issues (I had trouble getting the collapsible outfeed table to work well with the Industrial Series mobile base on the Professional series saw) - Sawstop's Customer Service was excellent, kind and patient.
Using the saw is an enjoyable experience on every cut.
The 3HP motor provides plenty of power for ripping or crosscutting thick stock.
The dust collection is beyond excellent (I added the Floating dust collection assembly, but have run the saw without it, and either way the dust collection is highly effective and efficient.)
I really cannot say enough good things. The fit and finish rival that of Powermatic, but at a much lower price point, and of course if I ever DO make a mistake and put a finger into the running blade, it is comforting to know that the damage will be minimal.
This is my first cabinet saw (only ever had contractor saws until now). The 3hp is a major difference from the contractor saws I am used to.
Hope to never use the safety feature of this saw, but glad to know its there!

My only minor complaint is that some of the paint is starting to wear on the fence rail after only 2 years of moderate use.

YOU WANT THE MOBILE BASE. This machine is over 500# assembled. With the base, you can move it like it was floating on air. This turns out to be very helpful during assembly as well as in a smaller shop, where a little bit of shuffling has to happen for handling big stock from time to time.
Only one tiny complaint - my fence binds a tiny bit when I try to slide it, but I'm sure it will loosen up with some use.

Do not use dado sets with solid-plate interior chippers, blades with molding heads, or “wobble” dado sets as the brake cartridge is not designed to stop those blade types. Also do not use blades with tooth “shoulders” (often called depth-limiting or anti-kickback shoulders), as these blades will take longer to stop in the event of an accident. Here are examples of popular Dado Stack Models that meet the qualifications and can be used on all SawStop saws:
· Forrest Dado King DK0824XXX (5/8” arbor)
· DeWalt DW7670
· Tenryu GMD-20340
· King Canada KSC-8000
· Amana 658040
· Freud SD208S 8” Dado Stack (NEW, March 2017)
Thank you for your question. I don't know of anyone who has done this, as the blade is a left tilting blade and the rails are designed to hold the 12" cast iron wing to the left of the blade. That being the case, there isn't enough room to the left to attach the Bench Dog. I am not sure if you know, but our standard t-glide extension table was designed to be used with a router. The table provides an area that can be cut for a router plate; the bracing underneath leaves a well-centered opening for this.
