Default Making a table saw, with depth stop.

Matthias is a very talented person. When/if my saw dies for good I think I might well try this. Low cost, and would work great for what I would want it for. Leave it saw side up and you could use it as a miter saw - I only make 90 degree cuts, so would work great for me.

Found the usual way, looking for something else, not even remotely connected. However, this time I remember what I was originally looking for. Plans I saved, somewhere, for a homemade pipe bender.

Theo, I agree he is very smart and it would be nice for new woodworkers and people like you who don't need a big saw. I just don't see why he used particle board. IMO particle board is the lowest grade of wood there is. I just hate the stuff.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

"Not even remotely connected",I know what you're saying.Like, if I want to find something all I have to do is look for something else guaranteed.Will probably locate something I was searching for weeks ago too.

My thought is, he is not actually going to use it anymore, he has a good saw, and particle board is cheap, good enough for demonstration purposes, and likely had some sitting around. No, if I were going to make one I would most definitely use plywood. But, if my present saw does die, and I decided to make one, I would stretch it out some, and I would have a foot switch, don't know what those run now, but got mine from HF, for around $10-11.

Go Harbor Freight !!!

I think that was a repurposed counter top he was using, with a p-lam surface for the TS top.

You can get a cheap contractors saw for less (IMO) than he has in time and materials in that.

Cool - but not practical, in my view.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Maybe, but a lot more out of pocket, and not near as much fun.
