    I love my wife

    She asked me yesterday why I havent bought the saw that doesnt cut your fingers off yet.(the sawstop)
    she doesnt care what it costs, she asks me if I think my thumb is worth 2000 bucks.
    Gotta love this woman.
    As soon as I finish up what IM working on, and shop gets taken apart I told her.

    In spite of all the flack Sawstop has received, and some of the magazines that ran the ad, it seems as though they were right on the money claiming that their saws were "wife approved". After all, who cares more about you and wants you to keep all your digits? (apologies to those who feel the ad should read husband approved - it can go both ways)

    Dude I would have been on the horn already having it delivered.

    Don't care what anyone thinks about the saw or owner but it's one awesome saw. We have a sawstop ICS at work. One of the guys tripped it buy accident trying to cut metal laminate. I almost couldn't find where the blade had touched the material. Hopefully it wakes up the other manufactures to start getting innovative cause they missed the ball with this one.

    Congrats, Allen. She's a keeper for sure. A SawStop is one woodworking tool my wife would be very glad to have me buy, and she's said so. Just don't have the bucks to pull it off right now, so it'll have to wait.

    Yes, SawStop is the real deal. Kills me to say that it is on the short list.

    cynthia, do a google search for sawstop and watch the you tube videos,, this saw will not cut your finger it has a brake system to prevent it..as long as it is on and not over ridden.. great saw for a safe cut.

    Besides the safety feature that stops the blade before it can do any serious damage to you fingers it is also an awesome design well built machine.

    The key thing is even with the saw stop, it pays to practice safe methods when using any power tool, even one with a brain like the sawstop.

    If you are doing something on a table saw and it doesn't feel right, it isn't. Stop, think about it and consult the manual.

    I think of the sawstop as being like airbags. If you drive safely and defensively, you'll never need it. But every now and then something will come out of left field and then it'll save you.

    Many people have used non-sawstop technology saws over the years without using fingers. Those folks followed the rules.

    So, I'd say, make sure you learn about how to use the table saw safely, and you'll be fine... The saw stop just adds an extra degree of safety for those who use the table saw properly.

    And on top of everything else, it's a darn fine piece of engineering...
