New SawStop Table Saw Installed at ISEA Boat Shop

Fred Unloads the new SawStop

The ISEA Boat Shop's new SawStop table saw was delivered this week. This saw will raise the level of operator safety many fold over the previous saw. While no students are allowed to use power cutting tools in our shop, this saw is used by Boat Shop instructors and ISEA ship's crew. The new saw is able to sense contact of the blade with a human hand and stop the saw before injury. Amazing. Thanks to Fred Rehak for helping with the order and delivery, to Chuck Dickerson for coordinating the project, and to our anonomous donor for funds for the new saw.
