Tips, Tricks, and Hints
This introduction is designed for you to learn the basics of Sawstop, its safety features and how to use the tool in the Make717 space. This is not a class on using a tablesaw if you are not already familiar with doing so. We anticipate a tablesaw basics class in the future so if you are interested in such a class let us know.
In this introduction we will discuss the various parts of the saw including the safety features. We will demonstrate how to use the blade guard and riving knife, how to change the blade and brake. We will discuss how to leave the saw at the end of your work session and answer any questions you may have.
