Our current table saw is a Sawstop professional series 1.75 HP 10" cabinet saw. Model (PCS175)
Information about this type of saw
THIS is NOT a normal table saw. If you skin or any conductive material touches the blade, the sawblade assembly will instantly drop below the table and a metal block will stop the blade, this will save your fingers, but it will destroy the blade and actuation mechanism, witch will then need to be replaced.
What this means
- Do not cut wet materials
- Do not cut metal
If you must cut wet materials or metal
ask around the space to see who has the knowledge to disable the mechanism for a few cuts.
