I don’t know what you mean in terms of add-ons. I did a lot of research on the SawStop before buying my new table saw. The only real variations in terms of what you buy could be the fence, as it’s different between the models but the only other things you can add are the slider extension, overhead dust collection and the type of roller stand.

As far as I remember, there was nothing that could be added to make the build more stout or a better saw. In terms of quality, even though I did not buy the SawStop, the build was actually top notch and the castings are heavier than the other brands because of the amount of force that is exerted when braking a moving blade. It has to be overbuilt for that reason.

One thing I would recommend, on any of your tools, rather than pulling breakers is to use keyed switches for everything. Even something as simple as the kind that you have to insert a plastic tab. As he needs it, insert it and let him use the tool and when you’re done, pull the tabs and put them up where he won’t find them or even lock them in a drawer.
