Did this video help you?

MrAnomilus: Very well done!

Killer Watts: Very Nice, going to take apart an old one I have and rebuild it this Spring.

eddiecarlcalhoun: That's a really nice build,,,

ginganz13: I notice the measurement are all in inches - could you make a metric version? :-)

DawgYankee: What an awesome build!! The sliding table and its fence are great ideas...This is a better looking piece of equipment than most of the tables saws I've seen being sold in stores costing probably much more than what it cost you.. Can you share approximately how much $$$ you have in this build including the saw? Thanks for a very well done and informative video. Subscribed, btw. 

InformationIsTheEdge: I would like to know how you poured that concrete table top. Did you make a form? I get that it was poured upside down but how? Did you need to machine the surface flat after, it looks quite smooth. Do you have any video of that? For the record, I totally DIG your videos. Something quite transfixing about the methodical manner you work. Thanks for the great videos!

virustwin: i love it! one of the best homemade table saws i've seen hands down

1873Winchester: I wanted to add my bit on saw safety features. I recently acquired my first saw (40 year old european cast iron machine) and it has a riving knife and overhead SUVA guard. I think those are my favorite safety features, in addition to the solid cast iron fence (weighs like 20lbs) which like yours ends where the blade ends. I already did some mistakes on my first cuts which I believe would have led to kickback if not for the riving knife. I spotted it the moment it happened and saw how the riving knife stopped the cut from diving into the saw blade. The overhead guard would also have helped to stop the bit from going anywhere but backwards and I stand to the left. So I already had use of these features within my first week of operation. I never have to remove it because it works with non through cuts. I do not believe I will buy another saw in my life, because this one is seriously good german quality, basically all it needs is new bearings every 2nd decade or so I gues and a motor service about as often. Even has a sliding table that I need to renovate a bit before using. But I now think I would never buy a table saw without a riving knife at least. And an overhead blade guard should either come with, or it would be the first thing I made for the saw when getting it. 

Akio Mabe: Mate really nice work but... do you have the blueprints? would be easier to build thanks a lot and awesome garage 

Jorge Monroy: I have reviewed your website has very good information, I'll take the time to go cataloging what is useful to me, or almost every friend. Thank you. I want to make my table saw, etc etc

aintgonnahappen: Dude, you are awesome. What a great job.

bob Last: Very nice.

Morning Wood Worker: A concrete top? Wow I never would have thought of that! Sweeeeet!

Robert Matter: Ingenious work !

Miguel Céspedes: muy buen trabajo,solo q no entiendo el ingles ,deberias hacer tutoriales subtitulados en español...desde PERU gracias...

Matt Evans: Mr. Heisz, you are not only obviously skilled, you are a brilliant designer. I look forward to shamelessly copying all your builds in an attempt to show my friends I'm better than they are. But it'll be a lie, because I'm not. You are, John. You are better than my friends. Masterfully done. 

Алексей Киселёв: НОЖКИ ПРИКОЛЬНЫЕ

Александр Ступак: бляха муха этот звук пилы вначале меня вырубает... А так зачет...

Didin Rukmana: Thank you !

Daniel Richards: Genius!

jim bettridge: Good one John

james phillips: home made!??!?! the quality of this is unreal! normally when i think of home made you know you imagine that some areas are botched, not enough wood just all screwed bits together and a mess but WOW this is like something you would buy out of a shop!!! i know i'd buy this off you in a heartbeat! your work is fantastic, creative, innovative, clever, well designed, words escape description, you are THE master craftsmen! I wish I could take personal lessons with you, this is just phenomenal, you really open our eyes to see the possibilities with what can be done with wood and your work has me mesmerised, sometimes even a bit deflated that you know i look at this i think "im done! i give up!" but with your experience, you just can't go wrong, incredible expertise, you are the boss, i commend you in high regard good sir, I just love to see good woodwork as a carpenter myself, I would love to build that, thanks for sharing!

no noi: y this is good

john lillbourne: Amazing craftwork

ANIBAL BARCA: Me gusta tu sierra te felicito

Dave Roy: I wanted to ask, on your site you said your shop was -12. Would that present a problem with the wood expanding and contracting and putting some of the accuracy off once you heat the shop? I do not heat my shop when not in use, but never heat it very hot, when working you stay warm anyway. Thanks again.

TomKaren94: If your blade is parallel to the fence and the direction of the slide, the only other concern is whether the wood is fully stabilized in the drying process. I remember sometimes the kerf would close on me... 25 years ago. But I can't think of a time since then. I've never used a blade guard nor a riving knife. If absolute safety is a must, don't use a any tools... ever. But if reasonable, sensible safety is your goal, it's more in your technique than in the tool. I've only had one workshop accident in close to 50 years of woodworking... I ripped a narrow board by hanging my hand over the fence, got hold of it as it began to fall off the back of the saw table, and promptly drew my hand back, putting the end of my thumb right into the blade. Lost the last bone in my thumb, got 19 stitches and I wasn't able to work for 4 months. It wasn't the safety accessories or lack thereof that caused it... it was the fact that I was cutting on my table saw while thinking about the measurements for my next dovetail setup on the router table. My fault... not the saw's.

AlainBoipas: Hey ! Thanx a lot for ur sharing, but plz... next time, don't make noise with ur hands or with other things when u spk... merci ;) Salut ! Merci beaucoup pour votre partage, mais s'il vous plait, la prochaine fois, ne faite pas de bruit avec vos mains or autre chose lorsque vous parlez... merci :)

Dave Roy: Very nice! I built a table saw in one day out of a old 10" miter saw, because I needed one. Like you, I plan on building one exactly the way I want, to suit me. I will use some of your ideas, very good info. Thanks for sharing your skill. Hey Rob Ace dude. Its because we can.

Nine8SST: I love your channel and all your wonderful videos John. And I sincerely appreciate the way you are not at all condescending like many of the people who are masterfully skilled in the way in which you are....thank you! Your demeanor makes your videos enjoyable and easy to learn from....I cant even begin to tell you the hours I have spent on your channel and your website!! Do you have any intention in putting a set of plans together for your table saw? I would love some details to be able to duplicate it...and of course I am willing to pay for it....I'm sure many others would be too!! Cheers, Jason.

danny chan: A real home made table saw! 

vincent7520: Did I undestand well ?… The side table is "concrete" ???… I'm amazed, simply amazed. So ingenious !!!… Wonderful.

John Heisz: Thank you!

Rusty Case: You did a nice job on your project! I think, you will discover a single 1/4 - 20 bolt on your adjustable feet to be marginal. Two on each would be far superior over the long run.

deezynar: I've been using a tablesaw w/out a riving knife for years and I've never had a kick-back. I never saw green wood and I always keep the wood tight against the fence.

Andrew Goodrick: Out of curiosity, in retrospect would you consider adding a blade hood that accepts the hose to your shopvac to suck away any dust that would fly off the top?

cwebsterlusk: I would LOVE to see the mechanism that the motor and all ride on. That's the part that seems to elude me when I look at building my own.

Justin Migliorisi: If they were smart enough they'd know it too and have their own you tube channel. Anyways bad ass saw. Hoping to make my own table saw. This is good inspiration. Thanks. Justin

The1andOnly1ToB: Impressive

Seyed H.H: that was WOW man. tnx for sharing

John Heisz: Concrete is not for everyone, that's for sure. To do it again, I'd probably end up with a better top than last time, and cast in a ring for a standard throat plate. The other materials I'd consider are Corian (or some other brand solid surface), or steel plate. When laminating wood with metal sheet, it needs to be done top and bottom, to stop it from cupping.

John Heisz: You must be talking about the sanding table - it's the only thing that has drawers. There is a very detailed build article on my site about it, and a few videos on here.

John Heisz: Thanks. I'll do a SketchUp model of the fence and add it to the article on my site, probably within the next few days.

577666: The riving knife is to prevent the cut wood from pinching the blade, which can be damaged/bent without. It is nothing to do with training. What nonsense are you talking about!
