SawGear from TigerStopClick image to enlarge

SawGear is a portable, automatic lineal cutting system made by TigerStop, that now has a more robust leg structure to its optional jobsite tables. The new table legs were provide increased stability. The new legs branch in two directions from a direct connection point. They are connected at the top to the table with a sheet metal faceplate. The tables come in three different lengths to accommodate the 8, 12, or 16 ft working length SawGear.

“SawGear’s are being used on jobsites as well as in workshops and heavy industrial locations, so it made sense to strengthen the table leg design,” says Simon Spykerman, TigerStop’s director of marketing. “Rather than a single stand with tripod, the new legs branch in two directions from a direct connection point and provide even more stability.”

SawGear Table design incorporates a hinge system with the new, collapsible leg structure, making the tables easily transportable, simple to level and quick to set-up and break down. Also available are customizable in-feed tables.

It easily attaches to either side of a miter saw, chop saw, double miter saw, vertical panel saw, and even can be integrated onto an ironworker sheer or punch.  SawGear is an automated stop. Simply enter lengths into SawGear’s keypad, eliminating the need for repeated measuring, which saves time, reduces material waste and vastly increases efficiency. SawGear provides automatic and accurate length measuring in the shop or on the jobsite.
