I would argue that if you can't afford a saw stop, you should wait and save up for one instead of buying a table saw without it. It's like buying a car without seatbelts. Too much risk of a bad accident given enough time.
I was able to pick up my 3HP Sawstop cabinet saw used off Craigslist. I sold my Delta "contractor's" saw (what is now called a hybrid) for $500, so I only had to put $1700 into the SawStop. Told the wife that it was cheaper than a trip to the ER.

I've a gripper but honestly its just been gathering dust for a long time. My homemade push sticks don't require any set up and they serve the purpose of safely operating the tablesaw.
Same here ☝️

My most used push blocks are cheapies with truss mending plates screwed to the bottom.

Wow. Seems like a solution in search of a problem. I've spent hours behind table saws and routers and can't imagine wanting this goofball does everything invention over simple push blocks and hand made push sticks but whatever floats your boat I guess

If you,are working with small parts, this is a must (if you value your fingers).
I was able to safely do dados and rabbets on a small 5" by 3" piece"for example, it felt safe and intuitive.

I had this collecting dust for weeks, until I bought dado blades and started doing More complex cuts on my table saw,without the blade guard or anti-kickback pawls.

Saw stop technology does not reduce the likelihood of a kickback. The micro jig does.

And then the wife countered, how many trips to the ER did the old Delta cause over the years? She also thinks that $1700 would go nicely as a new purse, lol. Congrats on the nice tool.

I'm trying to get to two $150 purchases and can't seem to get closer than $155 and $160 ... sorta defeats the purpose.

What's worth getting double of? Don't mind having two of some things but at this point, I'm just adding to get to 150.

These types of sales are terrible. Does anyone know if they go on better sale in other ways or markdowns? I could probably wait a couple of months.

1 Matchfit Dovetail clamps 45.00
1 ZeroPlay 360 Sled kits 19.78

1 MJ Splitter SteelPro 39.48
1 GRR-Ripper ADV 3D 79.00

Optional
1 MatchFit Dado Stop 24.99
1 Grr-ripper handle bridge 14.60
1 GRR-RIPPER 1/8" Leg Table Saw Accessory 15.00
1 Micro Jig SG-133 MATCHFIT Setup Gauge 15.95

...
Also, I'm not loaded with cash but I see the value in the peace of mind here. I've seen some pretty close calls. I'd hate to be one of those irreversible regrets. The way I see it, is if I'm well equipped and at ease, I'll not only get the projects I need to get done around the house, but I might even take this up as a stress-relieving hobby and make some extra cash. Also, with my brothers coming over and possibly using the shop, one being somewhat accident-prone, I'd also just feel much better if they're risk is greatly reduced. None of us are dingbats, but hey, its a day by day, project by project basis as far as complexity and concentration. These tools seem like they'll serve as a reminder, kinda like throwing on a silly life vest while boating, harness while tree trimming, high-visibility vest while fielding roadside conduits or helmets on the site.

I'm just going to save up for a sawstop. My fingers are worth much more than the price of the saw.

This thing promotes putting your hand directly over a 10-inch 3,000 RPM 24-tooth carbide tipped saw blade. Even being bad at math.. pass.

:
I have two Grippers that don't see much use. They are indispensable for some cuts, but I feel much safer using Matthias Wandel's two stick method for the majority of my table saw work. I do think the Gripper would be a perfect companion to a Sawstop, but that will need to wait for me.
Two stick method is excellent. What I dislike about the gripper is that your entire arm ends up directly over the blade after the cut is complete. That's a recipe for meat crayons, especially as the gripper is used to cut thin pieces. I have an offset stick from bench dog that never has your arm in plane w the blade. Has a rubber foot and solid handle.
