    I recommend a vapor seal placed on the inside of the heated/cooled area. Ask another insulation contractor what they recommend.

    Contractor vs. Cabinet vs. Hybrid Saw

    I believe Sawstop gives a false sense of security which compromises basic safety and mythology. However in the worst case it does work.
