A Stopoff to see a Saw

Dropped into Gabbett Machinery today to have a chat about a few things, including the new Professional SawStop model.

It will be arriving in Australia in a few short weeks, and one of the biggest things about this model (in particular) is the price, which will be around the $4500 mark ($3800 for the entry-level – short fence, more basic guard etc)

Given the overall quality of the saw, that puts it well into the realm of other serious tablesaws.

It has got to be said – that is a very sexy machine.

And putting the SawStop feature aside, it is still an extremely well-made saw.

Some specs on the new model:

10″ blade, 5/8″ arbor, Left tilt
3HP motor (2800W approx) 13A
max dado width 20.6mm (requires separate SawStop cartridge)
Biesemeyer-style fence.

The base shown above is optional for the Industrial model.  The optional Professional model has two external wheels under the table to the right, and a pedal to the left to lower a wheel located under the cabinet (piston assisted).

Damn, but that is a good looking saw!
