SawStop Pro VS… (is it in the game with PM2000, SS industrial, and unisaw?)
Hi all. So I know this subject has been hashed out many times in many places but I wanted to bring it up fresh and with a specific point. Most extensive reviews comparing SawStops with PM2000’s and Unisaws are comparing the SS Industrial. A bit has been said on the SS Pro but not as direct a comparison.
And of course it is the SS pro that actually correlates most closely in price with the PM2000 and Unisaw – not the SS Industrial. So my question is: How does SS Professional compare with the PM2000 or Unisaw?
I’m don’t mean to eliminate the safety of the brake from this discussion, but I also don’t want it to be a main point. More the quality of the actual cutting (vibration, fence, flatness, trunnion beef, etc.) I also don’t want to eliminate the possible negetives of the brake (such as extra cost, seperate one for dado, mis-fire costs, and inabilty to cut wet wood (or with nails?) without thought to the key off switch).
The most disconcerting thing i’ve read on the SS Pro is that the trunnion assembly is two pieces connected with a rod as oppossed to one solid casting as is on the industrial and on the pm2000 and i think unisaw too…
