SawStop

Sawstop makes one specific tool, with a very specific feature. Their Table Saws have an innovative safety feature that pulls the saw away from your hand the moment it senses human touch, in less than 5 milliseconds.

This feature might be worth the cost of admission alone, but fortunately Sawstop saws are also very well built, and packed with features. If you want power, precision and the ultimate safety, Sawstop is your saw.

All of the information on the new Bosch REAXX table saw, which we mentioned previously, is available now. Price came in slightly higher for the GTS1041A-09 ($1499 includes stand) than the SawStop Jobsite JSS-MCA ($1399) which was a little surprising for us. The Bosch does offer several advantages with the smart phone integration and the REAXX does not ruin the blade when …
