I recently had the pleasure of using a saw like this one in the shop at my college, we have 3 Generals and one Sawstop, everything you said about the saw here is bang on 100% and I would pick the Sawstop over those Generals any day of the week. I think that when the Sawstop first made its appearance in the woodworking market people where a bit skeptical about its ability to compete with the big boys, sure the safety features are great but does performance suffer because of it? The only answer is defiantly not. I would trade my Delta I have at home for a Sawstop in a heartbeat, anyone have a Sawstop they are willing to part with? No? Didn’t think so. Thanks for the post, you made a smart choice when you purchased when you bought that saw.

Great review even though I have a powermatic I still would like a Saw Stop.

I will live vicariously through you. As clumsy as my wife knows me to be, I’m hoping she’ll okay the Sawstop for myself sooner rather than later.

Congrats on the new baby!

This is a nice review. This is definately a quality saw that is well worth the price. This is a wonderful addition to your shop that should be the last saw you will ever need.

I think the Saw Stop is a first class saw, even though I own a Powermatic 66. The fit and finish are top notch. I like the technology about the saw and the unbelievable safety aspects of it. I am a little concerned that people will get to comfortable and complacent in using it and that’s how accidents happen. I was taught to respect the saw and to always be aware of the potential hazards that may arise during its use.

Great review brother. I had a saw stop and the powermatic in my sights a few months ago. This should be the last saw you will have to own.

SawStop is really starting to win over the hearts and minds of woodworkers. The surprising thing is that the VERY high level of quality is winning us over. The safety features are just a bonus. I’m going to be hard pressed to pick between a SawStop and the new Delta Unisaw.

Great looking saw, so if I every get tired of tricking out my lowly Delta Contractor’s saw, it will be near the top of my list. Thanks for the review. It’s nice to hear about quality products out there.
