Uwe Born: Hi Cosmas,
after watching a lot of videos and articles about DIY-tablesaws, I am
thinking about building a copy of yours with the same Bosch. Good tablesaws
are really expensive, the cheaper ones are crap and yours seems to be a
very good solution for the money. As far as I know, all tablesaws sold in
Germany (maybe Europe, but e.g not in the USA) have to have a splitting
wedge/shim. What are youre experiences about having or not having it?
Thanks a lot in advance and for sharing all your projects! Keep up your
very good work!
Edit: I found an alterantive circular handsaw which could be interesting,
the BOSCH GKS 85 G Professional. It costs about 350 € but its has a
splitting wedge, more power and maybe will be a good starting point for a
DIY-build to get results similar to the Bosch GTS 10 XC for less money.
What is your opinion?
Randolph Torres: AHH I found your site, looks like you are a very talented and busy man. I
had a job last helping a lady whose father died. I was amazed by the
things this man accomplished, like you he made all of his tools. He like
you and I was a woodworker, but his passion was making string instruments
of every kind even one harpsichord, two harps and 14 others. I could
clearly his first instruments were poorly made, but each got better until
he was a master craftsman, his background as an Mechanical Engineer really
helped him learn fast, he had perfect hearing that also helped him. While I
was there several professional orchestra musicians were testing them, they
stated that each had perfect pitch. I was amassed at all his work it was
like a museum. I just thought you might like this story of another mans

Laura Popescu: I've been meaning to build a table saw out of my circular saw and so far
your design and construction seems to have the best features incorporated (
like the stable fence, dust collection, simple design). Thank you for
Blue Sky: Good job! How do you manage to make not straight cut i.e. 45° for
Eduardo Perdomo: Put a metal sheet channel to collect sawdust to the vacuum cleaner...
tutilaloi: I am afraid that the 3 screws holding the saw (the most important issue)
will soon give and the saw will detach. I built mine using flat head screws
(those by IKEA and the dowel nuts that go with them). The head of the screw
is recessed on the surface.
The drawback with using 7in saw is you cannot cut 2x4 (in the US!). I am
still scratching my head to reduce the thickness of the surface. Any idea?
ivan petrovic: bravoooo
Chad Jordan: What is the surface of the table made of? Is it simply painted or did you
laminate something onto the plywood? Great design, and I plan to use it to
repurpose my Ryobi circular saw.
BrushCountryJamboree: Cosmas to help prevent kick back on your table saw add the MJ Splitter
system & buy you a Gripper, all made by MICRO JIG.
Once you use the Gripper you will never go back to using those old style
push sticks, you will end up throwing then in the TRASH CAN.
Cosmas B: The material is like melamin coated plywood. I bought it as it is in the
bikerdad46: They may be outlawed but you could always stack two or three blades
together with cardboard shims and make your own. Just stagier the teeth.
Cosmas B: Glad you like it!
csae4694: cooles ding! gefällt mir sehr gut
Josh Navarrete: Great job! I would love to see more on how you made the ripping fence. !
thanks for sharing!
vincent7520: Great ! But how do you raise the blade ?…
Cosmas B: would be cool if that could be done, but also on some other table saws as
far as I know, they make the flansh in a way that you can only fit one
Jordan van Waas: Do you recommend putting a riving knife on my own home made table saw.
Which by the way I based of yours , very good design
Cosmas B: that would be ideal!
mrsillywalk: A very nice saw. I see that it is sitting on trestles. Is it fixed in any
way to them?
Cosmas B: I already thought about that but I was just too lazy. In germany dado
blades are outlawed anyway so no need for that. Thanks for watching!
marvinbanjo: great job on a home build
Cosmas B: Using a straight edge and a router.
TheOlddoggie: Agreed with Jon
Cosmas B: Yes, a riving knive makes it a lot safer!
Felix King: Awesome build!
Cosmas B: yes
Cosmas B: danke :)
ademar araya guzman: hola amigo de casualidad no hisiste planos de esta maravilla?
markogtd: thank you!
gilson percinoto: Muito bom!
M1Molter - Der Heimwerker: Klasse Arbeit :)
TheKosGov: Great job! I started thinking about same approach. What is a distance
between the surface of table and surface of saw plate? Is it of thickness
of plywood enough in the place of mounting?
Cosmas B: oops I was almost going to get a small ryobi table saw for my bro... I saw
it at a store and it seemed not that bad. I'm using this homemade table saw
for more than a year now without any problems.
seumas2: Sir, at the end of the video there was a pick up and fly back, a naked
blade has teeth and they bite, slainte mahth
Cosmas B: Stimmt. Die Tischplatte ist 28mm pickle, der Anschlag auch. Wenn du dir so
eine messuhr zulegst ist es ganz einfach. Das eizig kritische ist dass die
Nut im Tisch absolut gerade sein muss (am besten an einem starken aluprofil
entlangfräsen) Und dann eben die säge sowie den Anschlag mit der Messuhr
nach der Nut ausrichten. Das hat bei mir wunderbar geklappt.
Cosmas B: Have fun!
rodolfo villafañe: I took his idea to make my table guide, thanks for sharing the video.
Dave Gatton: Great job. Well thought out design. What is the maximum depth of cut?
Hias Hirblinger: Coole Idee! Wenn du jetzt noch die Steckdosenleiste gegen eine
staubgeschützte Version austauschst bzw. eine Sicherheitsschalter
austauscht, dann ist deine Säge auch aus Sicht der VDE sicher! Mach weiter
so! Grüße aus der Oberpfalz! :-)
Vittorio Purificato: Cosmas really congratulations, simple but effective! One question: what
kind of material you used for the top of the bench? It does not seem the
classic laminate coating ... Thanks in advance for your reply. Vittorio
Cosmas B: Glad you like it! The fence is made out of plywood and is held together
with screws and glue.
Tom Brown: Brilliant! Fantastic saw. Congratulations.
Ethan Nino: Where can I get a used/cheap circular saw?
Cosmas B: Glad the video could help you!
SuperKwame1: Hi Cosmas, I think you cpu buy an aluminum to build this for a long lasting
saw. Great work.
Cosmas B: Thanks! There are plenty of videos around showing how to do that. Search
