  • Fee to participate in Introduction to Saw Stop. Covers consumables to use the saw after the class.

Registration is closed

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.  You will then be given a code so you can register for the introduction.This class requires some homework to be accomplished before you can register.  

We will also do a quick overview of the Laguna Bandsaw, understanding how to change a blade and set the guides and tension.  Orientation of the bandsaw is not a requirement to use it but will give a short introduction so it may be used correctly.

To attend, you must:

  • Be a member in good standing or a STEMPass holder
  • Bring in (or purchase on arrival at make717) safety glasses since we will be in a safety glasses-required room, and hearing protection
  • Watch the videos referenced on the SawStop instructions web page below.!
