Saw this thread late, sorry. I use only SawStop. I have MS and am very very careful, but I trust the Stop Saw. In classes, I've seen it save fingers. Their contractor saw is awesome. That said, the other contractor saws are also fine, but you MUST be more careful. For some, that's not an issue. I also use Festool gear when I can afford it. There are others out there that work just as well for most parts. Heck, I still do a ton of stuff by hand (all furniture and boxes etc..), but I have the larger Festool vacuum and LOVE the system. My buddy has the domino cutter and we've used it a few times instead of M&T joinery and were very pleased with the ease and hold.

Congrats on a great purchase and use it safely and enjoy.

I also have several roller stands to support "run out" for ripping long pieces; very useful when working alone with the "small" DeWalt saw. They fold up when not in use.

This seems to be no longer made but Amazon has one left; single roller still available.

Thank you and yes, I'm a safety nut too!

Steve, thanks for the link. Never saw a multiple roller design like that.

I've been using rolling table for years now, but am building a true outfield table that has hinges. I use the 3hp cabinet saw with wheels so i can move it if needed, but I have contractor friend who built an outfeed table with folding legs that attach solidly to the contractor saw. It can also be used as a working table too as well as a router table by making a plate cut out and attaching a plywood fence with stops if you don't want to spend much money. Using hinges, you can just take out the pins and disconnect when needed. Very inexpensive, lightweight, simple to build and highly versatile. Personally, I don't like the rollers and never have. Cut offs often roll off etc.. I'm building larger pieces, but often am just using sleds where I have to have a table so the sled doesn't fall off the saw. I have only a small sled now as it's too dangerous to properly use one.

An outfeed table interests me. This will certainly be a project down the road. You by chance don't have a picture of the one your friend built?

Thanks!
