Thanks to a group of generous donors, the Woodworking Studio now has a wonderful new tool― a 5HP, 230V, Single Phase, SawStop Table Saw.  This machine is the pinnacle of table saw safety and precision cutting.  The unique thing about this saw is that the blade carries a small electrical signal that an internal safety system continually monitors.  When skin contacts the blade, the signal is interrupted causing the blade to retract and the system to deactivate.  I could wax poetic about this wonderful machine all day but this YouTube video says it all…

We would like give a special thank you to Al Trevillyan for spearheading this initiative and helping to make our Woodworking Studio a safer and better equipped place to work and learn.
