SawStop Table SawWe’re a Proud SawStop Distributor

There’s just no getting around it: cutting wood can be dangerous, especially when it’s done with high-powered, fast-moving saws. According to studies, there are more 60,000 table saw injuries every year, and thousands of people lose fingers to table saws annually.

Many people just assume that these risks come with the territory of using table saws, but it doesn’t have to be this way. A company out of Oregon is changing the industry and making woodworking safer for everyone with SawStop, and we’re proud to be their latest distributor.

What Is SawStop?

SawStop is a type of saw that instantly detects contact with skin and shuts off before serious injury can occur. How fast does this happen? In less than 5 milliseconds, SawStop can differentiate between contact with wood and contact with skin, immediately stopping the blade.

The first SawStop was released in 2004, and in 2017, the company shipped its 100,000th saw. And during that time, countless injuries have been avoided.

How Does SawStop Work?

SawStop blades are equipped with small electrical signals which can detect contact with the human body, due to its conductive nature. The instant the electrical signal changes due to contact with skin, it sends a signal to the saw’s safety system, which activates.

The safety system then activates an aluminum brake, which is immediately inserted into the spinning blade, causing it to come to a complete stop in less than 5 milliseconds. And the blade doesn’t just stop—it’s also driven beneath the table, which further reduces the risk of skin contact and injury. Finally, the motor itself is powered off, rendering the saw harmless to the user or anyone nearby.

SawStopMonitor & Detect

    • The blade carries a small electrical signal.
    • When skin contacts the blade, the signal changes
      because the human body is conductive.
    • The change to the signal activates the safety system.

Brake Activation

    • An aluminum brake springs into the spinning blade,
      stopping it in less than 5 milliseconds!
    • The blade’s angular momentum drives it beneath the
      table, removing the risk of subsequent contact.
    • Power to the motor is shut off.

Reset

    • Resetting the saw yourself is easy. Simply replace
      the blade and affordable brake cartridge and your
      saw is operational. The entire reset process takes
      less than 90 seconds
