Sawstop 10" Professional Cabinet Saw

The Sawstop 10" Professional Cabinet Saw is 1.75 horsepower and can be used to cut most wood products.  It has a maximum depth of cut of approximately 3 1/8" and can cut panels up to 30" wide.

It has the integrated Sawstop safety feature which both stops the blade and drops it below the table when it comes into contact with skin*.

The addition of this tool to the Make717 woodshop will allow for a whole host of projects that up until this time were not possible with the other tools on hand.

There is a $50 charge for this compulsory introduction.

Sign Up for a Compulsory Sawstop Introduction 

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.

In order to register for the introduction you will first need to watch some videos and then take a short quiz.  (SawStop Quiz). You will then be given a code so you can register for the introduction.

Please note that you must register for the introduction and walk-ins will not be accepted.
