Handmade table saw is a powerful tool with high performance. One major advantage of conveyers – maneuverability becomes a disadvantage when it is necessary to saw large amounts of wood. To simplify the process, you can easily put together a table for a circular saw with his own hands.
table design for hand-held circular saw is so easy that most wizards made it without preliminary drawings and diagrams. This sturdy workbench, which is made of wood and plywood. The most reliable basis for the table is made of metal. They are also the most difficult and requires the skills of the welder. Therefore, most coasters are made of waste lumber. Under the table top is attached circular saw, disk acts on it through a specially done by the slot. Timber advance on the countertop and sawn rotating disk. For convenience and accuracy of the table equipped with additional devices: angular and longitudinal stop.
Table top “eats” part of the working surface of the disk, the depth of cut is reduced by the thickness of the countertop. Therefore, it is desirable to select the circular saw with a maximum diameter of the disc, and the tabletop thin, but tough.
If the saw is not bought, pick a model with high power (1,200 watts). They will cope with saw cut large amounts of timber. For fixing at the base of the holes will be drilled: molten base may crack. Therefore, it is desirable to choose a tool with stamped soles.

To make a good stand for hand-held circular saws, it is necessary to recall carpentry skills, patience and a small amount of materials:
laminated plywood 15 – 20 mm;
bar 50 x 50;
electric cable segment;
lacquer on wood (if not laminated plywood);
The size will depend on the tabletop studio space. However, at too small table it will be uncomfortable to saw long stretches. If the item fits entirely on the work surface, cut runs smoother and neater. legs height is adjusted depending on the growth of the wizard.
For a small workshop convenient desktop design with approximate dimensions of 50 x 50 x 25 cm.
The manufacturing process of the table
Because the sheet is cut plywood tabletop required size. Markings applied to the bottom plane with a metal ruler and pencil. Jigsaw cut out plywood, edge frezeruem if necessary. If not laminated plywood, sanded surface of the table.
Overturn and the lower part of doing layout for fixing manual conveyers. To do this, the instrument remove the disc and set it on the sole of the desired location. Make a mark on the top and on the bottom of a fixture and a groove for the saw blade. Drilled bolt holes. They will twist the top, through the table top and the bottom kept nuts. Therefore, from the working surface of the hole zenkuem and bolts zashlifovyvayut hats so they do not protrude.
If you plan on cutting the material at different angles, the slot under the terms of the saw is carried out in the form of an inverted trapezoid. For smooth sawing operation, the ordinary groove. Before you cut the slot and fixing holes, attach the saw, adjust the level and only then cut out.
Apply a pencil location ribs. They are made from the board and set the bottom in 8 – 9 cm from the edge of the countertop. The legs of the table, we will attach to the ribs. The ribs are fixed with screws at intervals of 15 – 25 centimeters, additionally glued PVA. Self-tapping screws screwed from above, through the tabletop, head fully utaplivajut. Ribs are fastened together with long screws.
Table legs are made from the bar or board, their length ranges from 100 to 113 cm. Most of stability give legs slightly diverging downwards. They are fixed on the large bolts, twisted outside, the inside is secured with nuts. Ties will strengthen further from the bar frame.
To adjust the height of the table, below the nut attached into which are screwed bolts M14.
Now it is possible to fix the saw below, skipping the disk into the prepared groove.
It attaches to the inside of the table power outlet, missing from her electric wire and install the switch in a convenient location (on the outer part of the stiffeners). Power to the outlet will be supplied from the switch. From him stretch a wire to the nearest source of supply in the workshop. With construction ties fix the ON-OFF button on the circular saw body in a recessed position.
We proceed to the manufacture of auxiliary fence. To rip fence will need aluminum square tube №30 and two screws with wing nuts.
Saw off a piece of pipe along the length of countertops, 3 cm from the edge of the cut out holes for the screws.
Scrollsaw pressing two pieces of plywood. The design is ready.
For cutting across the table making sled made of plywood. They are aligned with respect to the edges of the table, pressed down and moved along the toothed wheel. In place of the circle pass to slide saws groove. Small items can be placed directly into the sled and sawing.
Dust Challenge is organized under the table, but most of the dust that scatters at the top, so be nice to complement the upper dust extraction device.
Work on the circular saw is very dangerous, so you need to take care of the protection of fingers. From the board or a piece of furniture board saw out the plunger.
Additions to construction
This construction can be completed riving knife to be removed. For him to wear protection for the drive, which cuts off the flow of swarf, flying straight into the joiner.
Some artists, collecting table on unique drawings, completely remove the protective casing factory, and the factory is replaced by a makeshift platform. If you do not plan to sawing at an angle, can be removed and all the devices for adjusting the tilt of the disc. Saw is fixed directly on a new basis, which allows to win a few millimeters cutting depth.
Without the inner casing is easier to remove a disc, drinking is not so much clogged chips when working with raw planks. Disassembly requires extra time, but is saved engine life, prevents overloading.
