Time ago I made a mini-table saw for the Unimat lathe (MINI TABLE SAW). Since then, I had the project of making another small table saw, suitable for modelism, with the following goals:
• It should use an independent motor, that is, not depending on the adaptation of a machine (drill, Dremel, lathe, angle grinder, circular saw, etc.)
• The height of the disc should be adjustable without involving the inclination of the cover
• It should have both a miter guide and a ripping fence (for safety, no freehand cuts should be made on any table saw)
• It should be portable and, if desired, it could be temporarily fastened to the workbench
• Although the drill chuck was not planned at the beginning, its inclusion brings many possible advantages, given the large number of accessories that can be used.
After reviewing various models, both commercial and homemade, I had a rough idea of how I would go about it, idea which underwent many changes on the fly. This is the result:
MATERIALS: spindle assembly, 4 3/8 ” saw disc, sewing machine motor, ½” thick corian for the cover, leftover wood and laminate floor for the box, two locking knobs (Makeshift knobs) and some other recycled items.
