The SawStop booth always draws a big crowd at IWF, with attendees waiting for the next demonstration of the company’s blade-stopping safety device. But this year there was a new sliding crosscut table attachment to check out.
The accessory comes with pre-drilled mounting holes to fit all existing SawsStop saws. It was scheduled to be available for purchase in mid-September, according to the company.
“A number of our customers asked us to make a crosscut slider with SawStop quality and practical engineering, so we did,” SawStop vice president of marketing Matt Howard says. “And we’re proud of the result: A beautifully-finished table that is easy to use and delivers repeatable, dependable results.”
The slider can rip or crosscut material up to 48” deep and features a 43”-wide fence that extends past 58” for material support.
The table and fence are constructed from T-6 aircraft-grade extruded aluminum and finished in matte black to match SawStop saws.
An oversized miter gauge measures to 60 degrees, while other features include large flip stops with scales and a magnified lens.
The accessory sells for $999 in the U.S.
