I have a quarter hp electric motor which I intent to power a homemade circular saw. The motor will drive an 8Inch blade at 5000rpm.
Is the motor strong enough for a table saw?
That raises a big red flag right there for me. If it scares you to do it, then it maybe best to not do it. There is a lot of variables to consider when doing a DIY table saw. However, if you fall short in any of these areas, you will create a machine that is incredibly dangerous to use. I know some guys have done it, and have done well, but they have the skill and experience to undertake something like this.To tell the truth I am a bit scared of using a powerful motor to drive a table saw.
Hey Bob; what function does the channel in the bottom of the wood base serve?
