General-purpose blades suitable for most applications are provided by Asmbly. We understand that some users may wish to provide a more application-specific blade; if this is the case, please discuss with the Workshop Committee on getting checked out to change the blade and properly adjust the SawStop brake cartridge. Inexpert blade changes can lead to misfire of the blade brake.

If you cause the brake to fire, you will be charge for a replacement! Go to the Neon store and purchase a blade and cartridge for $160.

The SawStop system is designed to reduce the risk of personal injury when using the table saw. The brake cartridge is single-use and must be replaced after engagement. It may be falsely triggered by conductive materials, for example

  • Metallic fixtures (like an aluminum miter gauge)
  • Very wet wood, especially when its treated
  • Metallized plastics (like mirrored acrylic)
  • Heavily carbonized (ie burnt) wood
  • Embedded fasteners (screws / nails / staples)

Asmbly keeps spare brake cartridges and blades in stock.
