Saw Stop table saw
I had read about Saw Stop saws on Bee Source and now am at the point of ordering one.
I don't use a table saw very often but others in the family are using them every week. We have a small portable table saw that is basically stored as a back up or for occasional use off site and a large one that is used all the time.
My daughter lost her index finger when her glove got caught clearing a chipper exit and I am terrified of potential table saw accidents.
I am currently looking at the 3 hp professional series with a 52" rip bench.
As I know nothing about saws is there any downside to this make and model for making hive components, ripping 4x8 ply and general woodworking. They also build furniture and cabinets as a hobby. The barn and fencing routinely require repairs.
They also use types of saws...skill, radial arm, scroll but I couldn't see that those, lathes or drill presses came with safety features like the Saw Stop.
Those that use this make of saw are you glad you purchased it?
