Circular Saw or Table Saw?
I need advice on a matter relating to woodworking. As you might know I am planning stage of acquiring a table saw for my open plan shop. However I saw on You Tube people converting their circular saws to table saws by mounting the circular saw upside down to the table. Now for the questions: 1. Is this method safe, taking the necessary precautions as with a table saw; 2. Will I be able to do the same cutting with this idée as with a purpose build table saw. The circular saw is a Ryobi 1300W Circular Saw at a lower price than the Ryobi 1500W Table Saw. The saving will be R900-00 in South African terms. Or in the approximately $125-00 US.
I do not want to save money and lose limbs or worst, but if possible this will help me to buy more tools that I need.
This grasshopper will listen to the voices of the masters experiences.
