You’re looking at the SS hybrid, right? You’re not interested in the jobsite saw? Or the Bosch Reaxx?

If safety is your concern, then you should get a Sawstop. I would if I could afford one.

I think that you will be able to get close to 80% of your money back on the saw stop if you take excellent care of it and decide to sell it. I also kind of doubt that you would ever want to sell it. The only people I’ve ever heard complain about the Sawstop were grumpy old contractors who didn’t like using the push stick.

My son is only 17 months old, but I would love to do woodworking with him some day. I don’t think that I could do it with my current table saw (Delta 34-410). IF (god forbid) he had a preventable injury, I would think about how much that $1599 saw cost.
How many hours would it take to earn it?
How much does a permanent injury cost?

Damn, now I want to go buy one right now!

My dad actually lent me his table saw, and I thought about it in that moment. I knew I could never lend my son my table saw unless it had some countermeasures.

If you’re going to get a half measure, then get a track saw. At least then you have a pro-quality tool, instead of a throw away saw. They also seem to be very safe!
