thank you sir for a puntual reply. you say i use the biggest motor i can afford. i already have a 3hp motor. what i want to know is it ok if i use this one for my project and also what size of a blade must i use?
Are you building the saw for hobby use or as a professional workshop tool?
Will the saw be used for ripping or cross cutting?
If for professional use, I would use a 12" blade.
As has been mentioned before, be VERY careful - the alignment of the fence has to be dead accurate, otherwise you will be creating a killing machine.......
