Their site shows the 4 versions that they are currently making, newest just
before the the latest cabinet saw is a contractors saw that has a portable
mobile base for easier construction site mobility.
I know I need to. ;!) Problem is, I have a cabinet saw now and I suspect
it is not going to wear out. Now if some one were to make me an offer I
think I would be all over the SawStop.
Yeah, I was one of the early defenders, having a some what vested interest
in the saw technology I was looking into it 8-9 years ago. Having whacked
off half of my thumb 20 years ago I inquired to learn if the blade would
"stop" after the motor was turned off, it does and had this saw been
available 6 years earlier I probably would have bought it and 15 years
earlier I would still have all of my thumb.
All those quality features and a riving knife.
Yeah my local Woodcraft has one in the class room also. I think I could
talk them into letting me test drive it with out much effort. I am afraid
that the attraction I would experience would be similar to yours, and I
don't forsee being in the market. BUT!!! IMHO it is only a matter of time
before a user is injured on a TS especially if they use one regularily. I
think it is more a matter of "when" not "if". And given that school of
thought the saw could be twice the price and it would still be a bargain
when considering pain and suffering, medical expenses and rehab.
All they need to do now is to add a sliding 10' table and a scoring
blade, and I could be in the market in 2 years. <G>
Yeah I also have the major hots for the Laguna sliding table saw but I
really don't have the room.
I miss that more than anything. Angela and I used to play with my
parents, at least once a week. We even had a proper Canasta Trophy.
Neither parent has the patience or the facilities to follow the game
We play once a week (but two, of the four, participants would rather be
in the shop) and, if we ever quit, I may even miss getting my butt
kicked on a statistically significant basis ...once a week.
That said, it's the company that counts ...
I brought mine home a few weeks ago. My wife has been hearing me talk about
it for years. When she was working with me at a woodshow last month she saw
me demo it and also did a demo herself. She insisted I get one.
I hated getting rid of my old CDN made Unisaw, but this is one kick ass
table saw aside from the safety features.
