Dado cartridges for 8″ dado sets

Product Description

The revolutionary SawStop protection starts here! This is the SawStop brake cartridge for 8" dado blades. It fits all models of SawStop table saws (except for older models). Current SawStop models use cartridges with blue tinted plastic cases and 9-pin connectors. If you have an older model with a clear case and a 15-pin connector, you will need a different cartridge; please call SawStop for details.

Besides, it is a great saw.

Like SawStop states, it will save fingers and in my case that is actually what the brake did.

It is obviously made quite well.

One day I did something stupid and jammed my thumb into the spinning blade of my table saw I expected 3/4 inch of the end of my thumb to be gone, blood all over the place, and a $10,000 trip to the hospital.
Fortunately that spinning blade was on a SawStop saw and I received only a tiny nick. Just down to the pink, no bleeding. I put a band aid on it and sat in the corner until my heart rate slowed to normal.

The brake cartridge and blade were toast but less than $200 to replace.

If I'd cut off my finger it would have been my fault, no question. But since we all eventually do something careless this system is worth every penny. Besides, it is a great saw.

What can I say other than it works just as it should. And yes I accidentally triggered my first brake cartridge, they work, stopped the blade instantly.

Use the brake assembly with my Cabinet sawfor the dado set. Easy to install and remove. Does not add much time to the conversion from 10 saw blade to the dado installation. Hope that I never have to see it in action.

Despite the feature claim of "all standard dado sets", when you buy the brake it recommends not using with those that have full plate chippers, only those with wing-type chippers. The full plate chippers are heavier, the extra stopping torque can damage the arbor. It seems to me this would be good to know before buying the dado for use with the brake, not after.

Apart from that, what can I say? It looks like a brake. I can't tell you how well it works until I do something stupid. Here's hoping I never do.

FYI, if you already own a full blade dado set, you may need to replace it becasue the cartridge comes with a warning. In my product searches I never came across anything that warned about using full blade dado sets. When I opened the package, it had a warning sticker on it about using full blade dado sets. So beware, you may need to replace your dado set when using your SawStop and this dado cartridge.

By microtute on April 11, 2014
When my husband bought the Sawstop, the salesman asked whether he wanted a backup brake and blade. . Since my husband has never had an accident in his life, he said he would pass. He was only buying the sawstop because our son is very safety concious. My husband makes guitars and had put a carbon fiber brace in the neck and was trimming. Bam! The brake engaged because of the conductance of the carbon fiber. Lesson learned and really impressed with how well the safety lock system works

Necessary to use a dado blade on my Sawstop. Saw will not operate with dado set unless installed. Nice Sawstop instructions for installation.

Does the job it's supposed to, my only issue is that I could use just a tiny bit more space between the riving knife holder and the brake, it is a bit tight when swapping out the standard for the dado and vice versa.
