SawStop 10" Contractor Saw

sawstop_contractor.jpgUpdate: We were way off on the price of this saw. The source that we used for the info turned out to be four years old. The actual price is going to be somewhere in the $1600 to $1800 range. We attribute this error to an early overindulgence in holiday eggnog. Thanks to Ben over at Toologics for pointing out the error.

This spring, SawStop's revolutionary safety system is going to be available on a 10" Contractor Saw. At the moment, the only SawStop table saw out there is their massive cabinet saw, which retails for around $3000. The new, smaller version will be going for around $700. No matter how you slice it, either saw is cheaper than dealing with a severed finger.

If you're unfamiliar with the SawStop, this video should tell you all you need to know.

While you're at the SawStop website, check out the videos of the prototype chop saw and band saw, both with the SawStop finger-saving technology.

We found it in this Fine Homebuilding article:

"By the end of this year, SawStop expects to be producing a heavy-duty 10-in. contractor saw (base price: $699), and a stationary 10-in. cabinet saw (base price: $2,199), both of which feature the SawStop contact detection braking system. Either of these tools can now be pre-ordered on the company's Web site ("

It does seem like a low number, but that's all we could find as far as pricing information goes.

Where did you see that this was going to go for $700? The reason I ask is because I've spoke to a few reps from SawStop and they indicated the price was to start at around $1500.

Thats a pretty nice looking saw at a pretty decent price. Especially if it saves you a finger or two! The video alone should sell these things!
