The engine already has a pulley. This is a standard pulley used in a washing machine.
Elongated engine casing studs will be used as attachment points. The standard studs were replaced with longer ones with M8 threads. Brackets are made of 60×60 mm angle. Holes were drilled at the point of attachment to the engine, and a slot was made at the points of attachment to the bed to adjust the belt tension.
From the drill
This is not the best option for a miniature circular saw in terms of durability and reliability. If you use a hand drill without making additional changes to the design, then you can offer two options for a circular saw from a drill. The first option will use a chuck, without any changes. the disc blade will need to be pushed onto the bolt and clamped in the drill chuck. The second option would be to remove the drill chuck and use the spindle to secure the saw. But be that as it may, a hand drill is designed for short-term operation, manufacturers recommend using it continuously for only 2-3 minutes, after which a break of at least 5-7 minutes should be taken. This tool is designed to work with drills with a maximum diameter of 10-13 mm, so it would hardly be reasonable to use a circular saw blade with a diameter of even 125 mm on such a saw.
Circular saw device
The circular saw device, like most stationary machines, consists of the following main parts:
- Bed or base;
- Motor. most often it is an asynchronous electric motor;
- Belt drive. pulleys and transfer belt;
- Circular saw working shaft;
- Security devices;
- Electrical equipment.
The entire layout of the device is based on a massive bed or base. It can be a one-piece part cast from cast iron aluminum, or it can be in the form of a frame. a body assembled from scraps of pipes or corners. Homemade machine, it is preferable to make from cuttings of profile pipes, for example, you can use square profile pipes 25×25 mm or rectangular profile 20×40 or 25×50.
The spindle for mounting the circular saw blade is used as a thread on the shaft. In this case, the saw is clamped with a nut. The spindle assembly can be made in another way, as with a hand-held circular saw, drill a hole in the shaft, cut the internal thread and clamp the disc with a bolt. But as practice shows, the first option is better. the circular saw is clamped more reliably, and the thickness of the blade can be selected differently.
When using a belt drive, the electric motor and the working shaft are connected by a V-belt. The rotary motion from the motor shaft is transmitted through the pulley to the working shaft pulley. It is recommended to design a circular sawing machine according to this scheme, this will increase the resource of the motor and eliminate the possibility of jamming. If the circular disc gets stuck and it stops, and the belt just stretches, and the engine continues to run.
The working table is necessary so that the workpiece is in the same plane during operation. The circular table is made as wide as possible, so that you can safely rest the part on its plane.
In order for the woodworking circular saw to be safe, devices must be installed to ensure the safety of work. This can be a protective cover, a pusher for working with small parts, a parallel stop.
One of the options to assemble a simple budget machine for homework is the option of converting a manual circular into a stationary one, adding a bed and a wide working surface to the actually finished device.
This table saw will use a belt drive. From the motor pulley, rotation will be transmitted to the drive shaft using a V-belt. The pulleys on the machine are used of the same diameter, so the rotation speed of the working shaft will be the same as that of the engine. 1450 rpm. These are the standard pulleys used in a washing machine.
The circular shaft is taken from an angle grinder. This decision is fully justified. There is no need to be smart with turning work, there is already a ready-made thread with washers of the required bore diameter. And you can adjust the diameter of the shaft with your own hands, simply by holding the shaft in a drill and processing it with a file.
A working shaft with a pulley installed on the frame will look like this.
Main units, materials, tools
The algorithm for creating a circular saw with your own hands is quite simple. First, you need to determine for what purpose the circular will be used. If this is a small portable machine for working with laminate and plywood, then here it is worth thinking about a device from a hand-held circular saw, and if you have more ambitious tasks, then it is better to think about a more reliable engine and impressive dimensions of the machine.
In any case, you will have to make drawings of the device in order to calculate how and where the equipment will be installed, how the main parts will be attached, and at the same time think over what tool you need to work.
For a small portable circular saw from a hand saw, you can use the popular plywood or chipboard body assembly pattern. Well, if you plan to use a belt drive and a motor from a washing machine, then you will need a tool for working with metal. Welding work is indispensable here.
Homemade stationary machine
The proposed project of a stationary circular saw assembled by hand provides for the use of ready-made parts and assemblies. Assembly involves only a few turning parts. The model is based on an electric motor from an old washing machine.
Making a circular saw with your own hands
The need to have a small circular machine on hand must have occurred to everyone who, at least once, tried to make a straight cut with a jigsaw or a hand saw of a small plank or strip of laminate. It’s another matter when such an operation is performed on a stable machine. Even if this circular was assembled from metal with its own hands and does not look very presentable, but this wood machine allows you to do the job faster and better. That’s just how to assemble the circular yourself at the lowest cost and use the available parts at the same time, for example, the engine from the washing machine?
How To Make A Homemade Table Saw With Circular Saw
Do-it-yourself miniature machine from an engine from a washing machine
But as for the engine from the washing machine, then this is perhaps one of the best motor options for assembling a circular saw at home. Washing machine motors have a long service life and endurance. Low shaft revolutions are fully compensated by the design. in most washing machine engines there is a groove for the pulley key, and the body itself has convenient mounting holes. You can increase the number of revolutions of the saw blade by installing pulleys of different sizes on the motor and the working shaft, or take an electric motor from the centrifuge of the same washing machine. By the way, a machine with a direct drive can be made from a centrifuge motor, such a motor usually has a long shaft, and a small-diameter saw can be installed directly on it. \
But the main advantage of the engine from the washing machine is its power. It is designed for a long period of work, and for a circular saw this is the most important thing.
Basic materials and tools
To create a circular saw, you will need materials:
- pipe (45 mm);
- corner “4” and “6”;
- boards 30 mm wide;
- metal sheet up to 8 mm thick.
The work cannot do without tools and materials:
- electric screwdriver;
- a hammer;
- tape measure and triangle ruler.
Compact benchtop machine
The above talked about how to assemble a hand circular. Now we will tell you how to turn this device into a stationary one. This process involves the manufacture of a U-shaped bed from a pipe, as well as the installation of a transverse arm. The lower ends of the structure should bend horizontally in the direction of the cut. They are bolted to the table. Stability is ensured by additional supports.
The lever mobility is ensured by cutting the horizontal segment into two identical parts, which are fixed to each other with clamps. The saw blade is attached to the vertical element of the bed with clamps.
Making a circular from a hand-held circular saw
A circular saw is quite simple to make from a hand one. It is not necessary to change the design of the original tool. The whole point is in making a table on which the circular saw will be attached from the back side. The sawing hole for the disc will be made in advance. Let’s consider the process in stages:
- The table top with a smooth and even surface is cut from plywood. A hole has already been made in it for the disc and for the saw mounts.
- The hand tool is attached to the underside of the table with bolts, the heads of which must be recessed into the plywood.
- In order not to make structural changes to the original tool, its button must be fixed in the working position, and the switch must be connected to the socket.
Home circular saw bench
Such a frame can be made in a domestic environment. There are two versions of the drive with a power not exceeding 1.2 kW. This is done in order to exclude increased power consumption. The structure of the first drive may include an electric drill of the specified power. This design is ideal for the home, but for professional work, its use will no longer be appropriate.
The bed consists of a work table and a base. To simplify the mechanism, you need to achieve this as much as possible in the disk mount. There are three main options: a hand-held circular saw on a tabletop, a connection between a blade and an electric saw chuck, shafts driven by a motor.
The table must have a solid and rigid base to ensure safe operation. In everyday life, there can be many options, it all depends on the author’s imagination. An important design parameter will be the cutting thickness of the workpieces.
Important! At home and for household needs, the possibilities of a circular from a hand tool will be quite enough. In this case, you can make a speed controller, which will allow you to work with even greater productivity.
Working conditions of the circular saw for wood
A circular saw is necessary primarily to make a long cut in a solid wood, precise and even, like a stretched string. It is possible to ensure high quality of the cut only by fulfilling three conditions:
- High speed of movement of the cutting edge of the saw. Ideally, you can get a cut quality comparable to a surface sanded with emery cloth;
- Sharp cutting edge of circular saw tooth. Some brands of discs are made from high speed steel, but it is best to use a tool with a carbide tipped;
- High rigidity of the “circular saw blade. work table” system. The higher the rigidity, the more accurate and smoother the cut line will be.
Any saw with a working tool in the form of a toothed disk poses a serious danger to the worker, so they try to make a table for a circular saw with their own hands as durable and convenient as possible.
For your information! In industrial circular saws, large diameter discs are used, up to 60-70 cm, so the speed of the electric motor is relatively low. 800-1200 rpm. At home circulars, the dimensions of the cutting disc do not exceed 25 cm, so the rotation speed is required rather high. up to 10,000 rpm. Install an asynchronous electric motor of 1.0-1.5 kW on a metal welded table, make an overdrive belt drive onto the shaft, on which the cutting disc is fixed with a flange; Make a small wooden table for a low-power washing machine motor; Install a hand-held circular saw of industrial manufacture on a machine assembled from a wooden bar; Use an ordinary angle grinder as a drive for building a circular grinder, in which the abrasive disc is replaced by a steel cutting tool.
All the above schemes are used in practice with different efficiency. If you want to unfold thick, up to 100 mm thick beams and logs, you will need a circular saw with a powerful motor and a steel frame.
An angle grinder is well suited for trimming small parts made of wood, but it is practically not used for a stationary circular saw due to the limited time of continuous work. A circular saw from a washing machine engine turns out to be relatively weak and inconvenient. Low power. 500 W and low revs require the manufacture of an overdrive V-belt drive and a system of two shafts. There is a lot of trouble, but the quality of the cut and productivity on such a circular is low.
Machine on a wooden frame
The easiest and most affordable way to make a machine bed involves the use of ordinary boards or thick plywood for these purposes. In this design variant, the actuator is located directly under the table (table top), in which a slot of appropriate dimensions is made for the cutting blade.
The frame made of wood is reliable and easy to manufacture
As an example, we will consider the option of manufacturing a bed with a height of approximately 110. 120 cm, intended for fixing a hand-held circular saw on it. The length of the countertop of such a design can be changed within small limits at your discretion.
Note! The height of the structure, if desired, can be adjusted, taking into account the height of the person working on the machine. And if it is necessary to process very long boards on it, the dimensions of the table top can be increased to the required size. In this case, you will have to worry about installing additional support legs.
The most convenient material for the manufacture of countertops is multilayer plywood with a thickness of at least 50 mm. However, for these purposes, other materials can also be selected (plexiglass or fiberglass plates, for example). As for such a common material as chipboard, its use in this case is undesirable, as it does not provide sufficient surface strength.
To make a machine on a wooden base, you need the following materials:
- blanking of sheet iron;
- standard sheet of thick plywood;
- a pair of beams with a section of 50 × 50 mm;
- thick boards with a standard size of 50 x 100 mm;
- a steel corner, necessary to increase the rigidity of the fastening of the guides;
- a circular saw;
- two clamps.
In addition, you will have to stock up on the following set of tools, without which the assembly of the machine is simply impossible:
- classic screwdriver and electric drill;
- a simple hacksaw for wood or a jigsaw;
- measuring instruments (square, tape measure, ruler);
- portable milling cutter for woodworking.
In the absence of such a milling cutter, you can use the help of friends or neighbors who have a milling machine in their household.
Additional Information: Some home craftsmen prefer to make countertops from kitchen tables that have served their life. However, such a structure will not be distinguished by durability, since the source material has been used for a long time in a damp room. That is why it will be wiser to make all structural elements from new blanks, which at the same time will allow you to take into account your personal tastes and preferences.
Bed based on metal profiles (angles)
The upper part of the metal frame is most conveniently made in the form of a 600 x 400mm rectangular frame welded from 25mm corners. Pipe billets with a length of 220 mm are welded to the four corners of this structure (the recommended pipe diameter is 17-20 mm).
The bed must ensure the rigidity of the machine structure
Two longitudinal angles are fixed on the frame with bolts, used to fasten the shaft in the bearing cage.
The distance between the corners is determined based on the length of the shaft, and the bearings used for installation are fixed to them with special clamps.
Important! When choosing bearings, it is recommended to take products of a closed type, which excludes the possibility of small chips entering them, which are formed in excess during wood processing.
The lower part of the bed frame is made (welded) of 40 mm metal corners in order to make it more stable.
A closed bearing is used to mount the working shaft.
Two jumpers of the same material are welded across the frame, which are used to secure the electric motor. There is also a metal platform designed for the installation of launching equipment.
Bearings are attached to the bed with special clamps
At the corners of the resulting structure, pipe blanks are welded with a length corresponding to the size of the pipes on the upper frame, but a slightly larger diameter (23-25mm).
Closer to their edge, special clamps (lambs) are made, used to clamp the lifting pipes of the upper frame, which are moved when the drive belt is tensioned.
The procedure for assembling the mechanical part of such a machine includes the following operations:
- first, bearings 02 are taken and hammered into the working shaft with force;
- after that, on the same shaft with an interference fit is fixed a pulley, previously turned on a lathe and having an inner diameter of the groove of 50 mm;
- then a thread is cut at the end of the shaft for a bolt used to clamp the cutting tool (for more reliable fixation, it will be possible to put paronite and metal washers under the bolt);
- upon completion of this part of the work, we proceed to the installation of the drive, manufactured on the basis of a three-phase asynchronous motor with a power of 1.5 kW, (1500 rpm). A pulley is mounted on the shaft of such an engine, which has an internal groove size of about 80 mm;
- at the next stage of assembling the frame, two finished halves of the bed are connected together (while pipes of a smaller diameter are inserted into larger ones);
- at the end of the work, a belt is pulled on the shaft, and then the structure is fixed in this position by means of special clamps. “lambs”.
Assembling the frame
Both transverse and longitudinal beams of the frame, used as stiffeners, are also mounted on the lower plane of the table top. In total, four such strips will be required:
Two transverse lintels that do not reach the edge of the table top by 7-9 cm on each side. Two longitudinal bars, the size of which corresponds to the same condition (they should not reach the edges of the tabletop by about 7-9 cm).
Taking into account these restrictions, it is necessary to outline the fixation points of the longitudinal bars and crossbars, in which the latter will be attached to the tabletop using self-tapping screws of a suitable size.
When marking points, the extreme of them is selected approximately at a distance of 40-50 mm from the edge of the bar (while the step between them should be about 23-25 cm).
Before the final assembly of the frame, through holes for self-tapping screws are drilled in all component parts (bars and tabletop). From the front side, fastening elements are installed in such a way that their caps are completely hidden in the material.
To increase the strength of the future frame base, the bars adjacent to the countertop are pre-coated with carpentry glue.
After assembly, the structure is temporarily fixed with clamps, which can be removed after the drying time of the glue.
Before starting work, it will be necessary to prepare a small sketch, which should indicate not only the location of all structural elements of the future machine, but also their main dimensions. When drawing such a sketch, you should take into account that your circular machine can consist of the following functional units:
- bed, which serves as the basis of the entire product;
- tabletops with an industrial model of a circular hand saw installed on it;
- remote control panel for switching the actuator on and off (circular saw).
Small-sized table-type circular machine
The specified composition of the machine is typical for small-sized products on a wooden bed. For capital equipment made on the basis of metal profiles (corners), its scheme has a slightly different form. The composition of such a product should include the following elements:
- a base of steel frames and brackets, on which a shaft with a drive pulley is mounted in bearing pairs;
- tabletop with slots for the processing blade, installed over the metal frame and rigidly fixed to it;
- a set of special drive electrical equipment located at the bottom of the bed and providing the required functionality of the device (it includes an electric motor, a starting device and a transformer-converter).
The main requirement for any type of bed is to ensure maximum reliability and stability of the structure. As options for the execution of the machine base, we will consider both frames made of metal profiles (corners) and supporting structures made of wood.
When familiarizing yourself with the requirements for the electrical equipment of a home-made machine, first of all, you should determine the drive power of the cutting tool (or autonomous saw), which for domestic conditions should not exceed 850 watts.
In addition, before preparing a sketch of a future product, such technical characteristics of the equipment used should be taken into account, such as:
- Depth of cut, which sets the allowable thickness of wood pieces to be processed on your machine. This indicator for industrial samples of woodworking equipment ranges from 5 to 8 cm, which is quite enough for cutting standard boards and thick plywood.
Additional information: In the event that you need to process wood blanks of greater thickness, it is necessary to provide a special lifting mechanism in the bed, which allows you to change the position of the disc in height.
- Before making a capital machine with a separate drive, the operating speed of the rotor of the electric motor should be taken into account. The choice of this parameter is determined by the lumber processing modes that you will most often have to deal with. For simple cutting of wood blanks, this figure can be relatively low, but for a perfectly flat (“clean”) cut, you need a higher speed.
Important! The optimal speed for home-made cutting machines is considered to be a speed that does not exceed 4500 rpm. At low engine speeds, the bed can be made on the basis of a reinforced wooden frame, massive enough to prevent vibration of the mechanism.
- When drawing up the sketch, the requirements for ergonomics should also be taken into account, implying the convenience of controlling the operation of the equipment, as well as the safety of handling it. They relate to the order of the buttons on the operating panel, the limitation of access to the cutting blade, as well as the electrical safety of the drive or individual control elements.
After taking into account all possible requirements for the future machine, you can proceed to its direct assembly.
Work on the manufacture of this part of the equipment is carried out in the following sequence: We start by marking a piece of plywood, carried out so that its edges are flush with the edges of the prepared sheet of iron. After marking, using a hacksaw or electric jigsaw, you can cut the plywood blank to the required size. If desired, it will be possible to process its edges with a cutter, although this is not at all necessary (the main requirement for this element is its reliability, not attractiveness).
Upon completion of these operations, the surface of the countertop is carefully processed (rubbed over) with medium-grain emery cloth.
Then, on its lower part, the location of the slot for the saw blade is preliminarily marked. To do this, it is necessary to determine the dimensions of the sole of the circular saw prepared for installation. For the convenience of measurements, the saw blade is simply removed, after which it will be possible to easily determine the dimensions of the seat.
For the convenience of marking the table top, the saw blade is removed
After completing its preparation, you should take a circular saw and try it on at the installation site. If necessary, the position of the points of its attachment is adjusted (at the same time, the contours of the slot for the saw blade are refined).
The finished plywood tabletop is closed with a steel sheet, which is attached to it with self-tapping screws. Subsequently, it will be possible to apply special markings on the working surface, which allows you to adjust the position of the wood blank during its processing.
Attaching the support legs
Table legs are made of bars of a suitable section (most often the same blanks 50×50 mm are used for these purposes). The height of the supports is selected for a specific person, i.e. individually.
In this case, the fact that it is more convenient to work on a circular machine should be taken into account when the tabletop is at hip level. The shape of the legs before their final installation is being finalized taking into account that they taper towards the supporting part (the interface area with the frame base should exceed the area of the floor support).
To increase the rigidity and stability of the structure, steel corners can be used in it, which are compressed in such a way as to provide additional “spacer” of the base. To secure them, special bolts with washers are used, installed with hats outward.

How to make a circular machine with your own hands
Circular type machines belong to the class of specialized machining mechanisms, without which no well-equipped home workshop can do.
This sample of woodworking equipment is especially relevant in the conditions of a country house and a country house.
When evaluating the possibilities of purchasing ready-made equipment, you will face a number of problems associated with the inconvenience of handling cheap stand-alone circular saws and the too high cost of professional processing equipment.
The only correct approach to solving this problem is to make a circular machine with your own hands, using materials and equipment available for free sale.
Note! In order to save money in small-sized models of machine tools, an autonomous circular saw is most often used as a cutting tool, which is rigidly attached to the bed.
With the help of a home-made machine, you can saw boards, shave off the slab, and also make bars of the section you need.
If you wish, it will be possible to significantly expand the functionality of your product, providing it with the possibility of processing wood using an electric planer.
In the capital version of the design of the circular machine, an autonomous drive is used, which includes an asynchronous type electric motor, the windings of which are connected to the power grid according to the triangle pattern.
Circular machine induction motor connection diagram
These circuits contain a number of additional elements that make it easier to start the motors into operation (the so-called “starting” capacitors and other electronic components).
To control the operation and ensure the automatic start of the electric motor, a magnetic starter is provided in the circuit, built on the basis of an electronic switch (triac) and a current transformer.
To build a control scheme for a machine on a wooden frame (a variant involving the use of a hand-held circular saw), it will be enough to duplicate the on and off buttons of the mechanism, bringing them out and fixing them on one of the legs of the table top
You will learn more about connecting the machine’s electric motor from the video.
How to make a circular saw with your own hands?
A circular saw will always help to cope with many household and construction tasks. Making it yourself is not as difficult as it seems at first glance. It is enough to adhere to simple rules in working with metal, to have suitable materials at home or in the garage. If you briefly describe the design, then you need to do the following: you will have to build a workbench for a saw of the required dimensions and adapt a hand-held circular saw for it. A stationary machine of this type will greatly facilitate the work and increase its volume. So, let’s look at how to make this tool yourself.
Circular saw table features
Making a table for a circular saw with your own hands is very simple, especially if you have at least a little experience in joinery. Experienced craftsmen can assemble it even without diagrams. The structure consists of two main parts:
- smooth work surface (table top).
Additional departments in the form of boxes are not required, but if you wish, you can create such projects.
Remember that the saw itself must be securely fixed under the table, and only the blade must remain on the surface. The hole in the table for the circular saw should be a few centimeters larger than the blade so that the sawdust can easily fly down without clogging the mechanisms.
The table for a miter saw with your own hands must be made as strong as possible. Since the greater the power of the tool, the greater the load will fall on the surface. Be sure to take this fact into account when choosing a material and a place for its installation. Knowing how to make a table for a circular saw, you can save money well and please yourself with a more convenient use of the tool.
We make a table for a circular saw with our own hands
Many carpenters have a wide variety of different saws. Some can be worked without additional devices, but the circular will be difficult to use manually. A hand-made circular saw table, made by yourself, is a very real way to save money and provide yourself with a comfortable cut of a large amount of materials. over, it is not difficult to do it, the main thing is to draw up drawings correctly and provide yourself with the necessary tools.
Stages of work
The circular saw is a pretty dangerous tool. The saw table should be positioned so that the saw is exactly centered without shifting the center of gravity. Based on the charts drawn up on the board, markings are made with a pencil, and then the base is cut out with a jigsaw. After that, the resulting tabletop must be carefully sanded to give smoothness.
After the work done, the tabletop is turned over and the markings are applied on the inside to deepen under the sole of the circular. Recesses are created with a milling cutter. The saw is installed in a homemade table, carefully fastened and tested for strength.
When making a table for a circular saw with your own hands, do not forget about stiffeners. They significantly strengthen the structure, especially in conjunction with self-tapping screws.
The legs for the manual circular are attached last. The dimensions, as well as the height, depend on the master, the main thing is to properly fix them on bolts and self-tapping screws. They need to be set slightly by surprise, and the strength should be controlled with the help of the same stiffeners.
Circular saw machine
To create a circular machine, you need to competently approach its assembly. Only a device thought out to the smallest detail is capable of performing the tasks assigned to it. For small jobs, of course, it is better to use a circular saw based on a hand saw (Interskol, for example). This is both compactness in size and relatively low power consumption. To process larger workpieces in large quantities, a stationary machine is required. Consider the most important components of the circular machine.
- The table for the machine tool can be made in many ways, even from an ordinary kitchen one. The main thing that needs to be achieved is the durability and strength of the structure.
- The working tool is a disk. It should extend beyond the table by a maximum of one third of the diameter. It is best used for processing workpieces less than 150 mm thick, otherwise such a machine is unlikely to work.
- Shafts and transmissions. The best solution is to install the finished shaft under the tool, since the manufacture of the shaft requires special equipment and skills in order to avoid errors and equipment failure. V-belt drive will provide greater safety and smooth running.
- Motor. Among motors for circulars, a drive from a washing machine with its high efficiency and a longer service life is always popular.
let’s say that a homemade circular saw is capable of solving a fairly wide range of everyday tasks. The optimal and easy-to-execute option is to make a jointer and a circular saw on the same bed. Plus, both tools will rotate from the same electric motor. This feature will greatly facilitate our task. Its design will not necessarily be complicated, the main thing is to think over all the details, make drawings, carry out the correct assembly.
The simplest circular saw frame, the drive power of which does not exceed 0.8 12 kilowatts, is quite affordable to make with your own hands from thick plywood and wooden blocks. For the drive, you can use an electric drill “Bosch GSB 19-2” (power 0.85 kilowatts) or “DWT SBM-1050” (power 1.05 kilowatts), which is attached with a special bracket to under the plate. The length of the bed will depend on the length of the material being cut. For the table, you need to purchase bakelite plywood with a thickness of at least 50.0 millimeters. Of course, a wooden frame is not suitable for professional work, but in order to dissolve the boards, quickly saw through the bars, such a homemade construction is quite enough.
In the general case, the bed will consist of a base and a table top (work table). Of course, when making a circular saw by hand, you should strive to simplify the design as much as possible. The design of the working table will primarily be determined by the design of the cutting disc attachment. In homemade circular devices, either a circular disc is used, fixed directly in the chuck of an electric drill, or (more preferably) a two support shaft, driven in rotation by an electric motor through a belt drive.
In addition to materials, you should prepare tools.
- pencil and marker;
- measuring instruments including meter and tape measure;
- manual frezer;
- grinding machine;
- sandpaper (should have medium or fine grain);
- plane and drill;
- electric screwdriver.
You need to prepare everything in advance and keep it at hand throughout the entire process.
Scheme for making a table for a circular saw
Before starting work, it is recommended to go through the preparatory stage. Be sure to make a drawing. This will facilitate the process of creating the structure. First calculate the dimensions of the table, then transfer the obtained data to paper. The hole to be made in the structure must fit exactly the size of the saw. It all depends on the brand of equipment. Therefore, it is impossible to make a universal hole. The base must be stable and withstand well mechanical loads.
DIY circular table drawing
It is unacceptable to outweigh the structure to one side. The dimensions of the table top should be suitable for the cutting flow. The final version is determined based on individual desires. Some people work comfortably with a folding table or a product with small dimensions.
Drawing of a universal bench machine
An important point should be taken into account in the drawings. If you plan to leave tools or materials on the table during work, then the dimensions of the countertop need to be increased to a square meter in area. A suitable size would be 120 by 120 cm.A drawing should be done carefully and slowly in order to do everything correctly.
Circular table layout with detailed description
Deciding on the design and construction
The simplest version of a circular table is a structure made of fairly thick plywood and boards
The base can be made of wood or metal. For the countertop, leafy tree species are chosen. A special hole for the disc should be made in it. Convenience should be the key property of the created table.
Care should be taken to ensure its stability. Any loosening is unacceptable, otherwise it will negatively affect safety. The countertop should have the most even surface. This will reduce the likelihood of injury during work.
A circular saw table requires the presence of guides
The structure can be supplemented with a special riving knife. He can be filmed. It is equipped with a special disc protection that allows it to get rid of the chips flying into the working.
Circular table guide carriage
Some remove the factory cover and change the factory platform to a homemade one. If you are not going to cut at an angle, you can remove the parts that adjust the inclination of the blade.
Homemade table can be made of wood
Wood, plywood or Laminated Chipboard can be used for such a table. Fiberboard and Particleboard will also work. Some people prefer to choose steel or aluminum.
Steel plate circular machine table
It is not recommended to use plastic, it is completely unsuitable for a table of this purpose. If wood is chosen, then after the assembly is completed, the product should be treated with a special antiseptic composition. This will provide reliable protection from moisture and help prevent rotting.

To make a quality structure, you must follow some tips. The process consists of several steps, presented in the table.
|one||The block should be trimmed on all sides using a planer. Then the frame of the future table is assembled from it. Several 5 mm holes must be drilled on each side of the countertop. Additionally, one pass-through is performed for the legs of the product.|
|2||Several holes of the same diameter are made in the drawers. In the legs, one through is performed. Diameter remains the same, 5 mm.|
|3||Proceed with installing the dowels in the table top. Before that, they are covered with wood glue. Legs and tsars are placed on top. If there are clamps with screeds, the product should be fixed with them. When the glue is completely dry, you need to fasten the drawers and legs using special metal fasteners. Additionally, it should be tightened with self-tapping screws. You can add reliability and strength to the structure by using the corners. They will become an element of additional fastening, give stability to the product. For the short side, 2 pieces are enough, and for the long side, 3 are suitable.|
|four||The next step involves securing the saw to the workpiece from the inside. There are several methods to accomplish the task. For fastening, M4 bolts or bars with self-tapping screws are suitable. The first case is fast and reliable. The second method does not involve additional holes, which eliminates the need for drilling. It is necessary to do a drank in bars, the width of which is equal to the dimensions of the saw platform. Further, self-tapping screws and bars on both sides fasten the equipment and the countertop|
|five||After installing the saw, you will need another larger block. It, using self-tapping screws, is fixed on the basis of the structure. Fastening is carried out at the marks made when the platform was set in a level position. These manipulations will help, when removing the saw, return it usually quickly without looking for markings.|
|6||The saw blade is set in place. The base is sawn to obtain a longitudinal hole. Then the product needs to be turned over|
|7||Then the production of the parallel stop is started. Two strips are sawn off from the plywood. Their length should be the same as the width of the table. On average, these dimensions are 10 cm.The corners should be rounded|
|eight||The resulting strips are polished. They need to be fastened at an angle with self-tapping screws. A metal corner should be screwed inside|
|nine||If you need to fix the stop on the base and the structure will be used often, you should attach the guide so that it is perpendicular to the disk. Attach the roller on the bottom. This will allow him to move.|
The structure is completed and ready to use. When performing the described manipulations, it is important to remember the observance of safety measures. Also applies to any manipulation of the circular saw.
