Video Tool Review: Sawstop Contractor Saw

Innovative finger-saving technolgy finally available in a portable design

Length: 6:14
Produced By: Gina Eide and Gary Junken

After much anticipation and several missed release dates, SawStop is finally ready to introduce its version of a 10-in. contractor's saw. It has the same blade safety-brake and riving knife found on its big-brother cabinet saw, but at a base price of $1,499 versus around $2,800 for its 10-in. cabinet saw. The saw is scheduled to be available in June 2008.

Former Fine Woodworking shop manager John White points out the features of this new model plus tests the blade brake by running hotdogs into standard and dado blades.
