How to Make a Table For a Circular Saw
A hand-held electric saw is a useful and convenient thing, but you will not be able to work with it for a long time, since you need to make efforts. If you need to cut a whole tree or constantly have to work with large volumes, then a circular saw is made from a circular saw with its own hands.
Advantages and features of the tool
The circular saw has its advantages: it allows you to make an even cut, increases the speed of installation, provides ease of use, saves electricity. If you replace the disk, you can overcome the soft metal. To make a full-fledged tool for work, you need to install it on the table and provide an approach from all sides.
In doing so, the following conditions must be observed:
- the table should be well strengthened, for which its legs are sometimes poured with concrete or screwed with bolts;
- the hand saw is fixed with iron brackets to the countertop to ensure safety during operation;
- grounding required.
Inconvenience at work represents a large width the table. The optimum size should not exceed 60. 70 cm, so that it is convenient to hold the bar (not on outstretched arms).
If the working surface is not static, then the cut quality is deteriorated, therefore, fixing is necessary. The wire can be fixed with brackets in the floor to prevent accidentally tripping over during operation.
As an option. make an additional outlet under the countertop.
First you need to prepare a drawing of the countertop indicating the dimensions. This is almost a drawing, but simplified. On paper, you need to specify the amount of clearance for the disk. in width and length, where it should be in relation to the edges of the table. You can immediately imagine your work behind such a device.
Of the additional tools you will need:
In the process of work can need a milling cutter.
To make a table you need to cook:
- 2 guide rails;
- particleboard size 60/120 cm;
- blank for a table with legs (if any).
The bed can be made independently of ordinary wooden blanks fastened together by rails, and a ready-made sawing table, iron or wooden, can be used.
How a guide for a circular saw is made. To make the cut even, a guide ruler attached to the workbench will help.
The essence of the device is to prevent the sawing material from moving during operation.
The easiest option is to attach two profiles, one on the sole of the saw and the other on the saw table.
To do this, you need to pick up two pieces of pipe, you can use an aluminum square profile of different sizes. Pipes must be cut vertically angle grinder. It should be a design for similar rails, when one piece enters another.
Next, you need to measure a piece along the length of the table. Pre-cut the recess and fit the profile into it, securing it with bolts from the bottom. A smaller profile is cut along the length of the sole and bolted. The edges of the metal should be sanded so as not to interfere with the smooth movement. It remains to combine both profiles and test the device.
How to make a workbench
A table for a circular saw with your own hands can be made of MDF, chipboard, thick plywood, wood, metal. Plastic material is not suitable.
- Measure the required length and width from a sheet of material.
- Trim the angle grinder and grind the edges.
- Bolt the countertop onto the table legs; for fidelity, you can use carpentry glue.
- Level the upper part with a level, fix it on the floor with metal brackets or pour concrete.
The circular saw blade is attached from the bottom to the table with wooden rails.
Description of work:
- Turn the countertop over, mark with a marker and cut a hole for the disk.
- Cut the top layer to the shape of the sole to a depth of 0.7 mm.
- Take two bars and fix the sole with the screws parallel to the length of the table.
- Fix the sole perpendicular to the table with two more rails.

Mounting the circular saw to the workbench is ready. If you plan to work continuously, then you can equip the table with additional emphasis. To do this, you need an even beam along the length of the countertop. It must be installed parallel to the saw blade, preferably in the recess, bolted. It is important to align the part well so that it is placed strictly parallel. the quality of the cut will depend on this, especially if you need to make furniture.
How to make a shaft for circular do it yourself.
If the do-it-yourself circular saw is assembled in parts, the engine is taken from the washing machine, the disks are bought separately or the angle grinder is removed from the inoperative, then you will have to think about how to grind the shaft.
It is not safe to make this important part from old pipes, since the disk itself will be mounted on the shaft.
DIY saw blade shaft difficult to do. Here you need a professional turner, preferably not a beginner. First, you should choose a special 45th grade of steel. The material is durable and elastic, specially designed for the manufacture of shafts, cylinders, gears.
For turning on a lathe, double-sided mounting is used. The part is first machined with a conventional cutter to give the desired diameter. Next, all badasses are removed with a fine cutter. A small allowance is left for final sanding to a mirror finish.
Shaft grooves performed by a groove cutter, as indicated by the drawings. In the process, you can remove the part and try on it components that will subsequently be mounted.
Mounts can be mounted on the shaft for:
- various cutters that can come in handy when turning curly wood products;
- regular circulars;
- Knives Planer.
A do-it-yourself circular saw with its own hands is equipped with a motor from an old washing machine. It is necessary to connect a starting device corresponding to engine power.
When installing electricians must be observed safety regulations:
- Provide thermal protection for cases of increased voltage.
- The switchboard must be installed on material that does not conduct current.
- If a metal frame is installed, then the electrical wiring should be well insulated.
- If a home-made machine with a circular saw is on the street, then the electrical unit must be protected from water.
If it is difficult to conduct an electrician for a circular saw with your own hands, it is better to contact a professional to ensure that the equipment works for a long time and without breakdowns.
For working with plexiglass, plastic, and laminate, a mini-circular can be useful. a small design similar to a stool with a disk in the centerat.
This model is designed for thin sheets of material and will not withstand heavy loads.
You can use the angle grinder, attaching it to the bottom of the above method.
For emphasis, you can attach a beam with a height of 2 cm.
The legs do not need to be strengthened, because the device is planned to be moved.
The engine power on the microcircular is small. up to 40 watts. The disk can be taken from a hand saw, but it is quite possible to use a prefabricated design, where a threaded rod acts as a shaft. a construction stud. The disk is fastened with a nut screwed onto the thread.
Various do-it-yourself gadgets for hand-held circular saws are easy to make. One of them is an ordinary block, which is inserted into the emphasis included in the kit. The standard emphasis does not allow sawing wider parts, as it is designed for a certain width, for each model it is different. In order to be able to increase the gap, it is necessary to insert a wooden part between the stop wall width and slide her to the sole.
You can make a device for cutting grooves, which can be useful in the manufacture of furniture.
The circular saw from a hand-held circular saw can be adapted for cutting at an angle. Both additional details and the possibility of fixing the disk itself to the desired angle are used.
Simple miter tool with a hand saw. It is possible to saw at a given angle.
The auxiliary part "wedge" is suitable for the production of round billets of wood for decorative purposes.
The end cut is used in construction for wood finishing of walls, which are subsequently varnished, leaving the transverse structure of the wood visible.
In order not to splurge on various devices for small jobs, you can try to independently think through a solution to the problem and create a working tool from available materials.
For arranging circulars, old hand saws are suitable, possibly with an inoperative engine. You can design a workplace according to any scheme. Having picked up details on power, there is an opportunity to saw materials of various width and density. With the help of additional devices you can organize a carpentry workshop and perform various operations without extra costs.
