Safety first.
Sawstop has come up with a game changer with this brake. I highly recommend it. Safety first. However not to be used on pressure treated material. A high moisture content in wood will trip the mechanism.

Triggered my last cartridge by mistake.
Triggered my last cartridge when the aluminum on my miter gauge just touched the blade. My fault. At least I know the system works!

I have seen these in action in a shop and it performed as advertised. Hopefully I will never have to use my spare cartridge in my shop.

Fortunately I haven't had to find out if it works!
Hope I never have to find out but know it will save a finger should the situation arise.

I need a back-up cartridge for my Saw Stop table saw.
John P on Nov 4, 2019
I own a Sawstop table saw. I don’t like how sensitive the brake is but I have already lost a finger tip to a router. So I’m happy to pay for new brakes when I blow one out

Needed new brake, mine accidently set off. Good pricing and timing on delivery

to replace the brake that was activated due to touching after saw was shut off but before the blade had stopped
Ralph G on May 8, 2019
the brake cartridge was employed and needed replacing.
Lee H on May 6, 2019
Like to have a spare. Don’t want to be shut down waiting for replacement brake. Instructions say saw will not operate without an active brake cartridge. 0ver 70 years working with a table saw. Been cut once and never knew how it happened. Never want that to happen again. Very lucky it was just a few stitches and not as serious as it might have been. Happy to have this new StopSaw in my shop.

CRISTIAN S on Apr 8, 2019
I choose to start using this item because of the safety alone. I’ve been building for 20 years and have more than one person that works on my saw. For $100 why risk the alternative.

because it fits my saw after I accidentally touched the blade with my tape measure after the blade stopped but before the brake safety system was disarmed. Won't do that again.

Just purchased cartridge, but do I need brackets purchased separately?
LeRoy Y on Feb 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The brackets come with the installed cartridge. When you install a new cartridge, the brackets resident on the saw fit the new one. I've changed cartridges from the standard one for the 10" blade to a dado blade and back with no problems. I didn't have to buy anything in addition to the cartridges themselves.
I have an older model that takes TSBC-10L. will this cartridge fit?
Tucker K on Nov 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tucker:

Thank you for your question. No, the TSBC-10R2 (blue) cartridge won't fit on your older SawStop Industrial Cabinet saw. Your cartridge is the TSBC-10L (clear), which is our Legacy cartridge, which we will always make for your saw, but Rockler stores may or may not carry. If your local Rockler store doesn't carry the TSBC-10L cartridge, then you can order it from our online parts store, as well.
Will the sawstop work with a kobalt table saw?
Gygantus on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it’s a whole system. To my knowledge you have to have a sawstop table saw; this is just the replaceable cartridge for when it trips.
Can I install Sawstop on my table saw?
Rodger R on Oct 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Only if it is a sawstop table saw. They don't fit on any other type of table saw.
can I use this safety technology in different field... stop piston?
Donald on Mar 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Donald: In response to your request, in theory our technology could be applied to many applications. As much as we would like to see our technology implemented on other applications, we don’t have the resources to provide you any assistance with this task. We are focused on expanding our product line to include products that are applicable to the largest market space, such as table saws. Is not a simple bolt on type of technology and must be engineered into the product at considerable development expense - likely in the hundreds of 1000's of dollars. We have limited engineering resources, so unfortunately they wouldn’t be able to provide assistance.
Will this work on a new Grizzly 10 inch table saw?
Lowell R on Jul 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question on Rockler's website. What you are looking at is our Standard Brake Cartridge for the blade brake system in SawStop table saws. No, it is not economically practical to retrofit other manufacturers’ table saws. The structural changes necessary to incorporate the safety system into another saw and the cost to have it installed would exceed the cost of a new saw. We offer saws ranging from a Jobsite 1.5HP model up to an Industrial 7.5HP cabinet saw currently.
will this break fit on a jet tablesaw?
Eric M on Oct 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No it will not.
