We have had extensive issues with keeping our current table saw running for our membership. The purpose of this vote is to purchase a new Sawstop to have a backup in case a table saw goes down and to have an additional saw when both are working. The chosen saw is the Sawstop brand due to its safety features and familiarity to our membership and volunteers. The proposed saw is a SawStop model that best fits PS1's needs


Purchase a new Sawstop table saw

The members of PS:1 authorize the PS:1 Board of Directors to spend up to $7000 on the purchase of a Sawstop industrial table saw and warranty
