Default Another Table Saw Option!

Home made table saw

Gives "Non-Industrial" a whole new meaning!

Kinda interesting none the less

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

I can't help but admire the perseverance of these guys that make their own major power tools. Not sure why they do it, but bouquets to them anyway!

as home made table saws go, i like that one! i have no urge to make one right now, but if i were to attempt it, that looks like a pretty straightforward way to do it.

Dunno, Gary. But he said that a machinist friend helped with it a lot. If one had to pay for that, and the motor and materials, it would have to be a labor of love! Can't be cost effective, I wouldn't think. But hey, If that's what one likes to do... not my cup of tea! Still I have seen some amazing machines built!

My thought is that they either cannot afford to buy, the tools are not available where they are, or in a few cases, they just want to. More power to them whichever way.
