DIY circular saw. Assembly of the frame

DIY amateur sawing table

Good afternoon everyone! During the discussion of one of my reviews, in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев the participants were invited to make a review on the sawing table on which I work. In this review, I will tell you how to put it in a hand, I made a sawing table, from what was, plus a little bought on trifles. Detailed Sketchup model model, with all elements and components, is attached to the review.

I had been thinking about the sawing table for a long time, but there were a huge number of other things, and it, of course, was postponed until better times. Then, when last year there was a more or less calm winter, I came across a series of video on home-made sawing tables and realized that this is what it was time to do.

In very many videos of reviews, the tables make the tables so seriously, and even against the background of fully equipped workshops with a bunch of machines, that sometimes you look at your working conditions and doubt whether to take it. In this review, I will tell you how the table in fairly Spartan conditions, having a circular saw in my hands, a corner grinder, a screwdriver and a milling mill (just here was a milling mill for the first time, which was a new one in the box for three years).

I had a manual circular saw Hitachi C6ss, a cheap, but as it turned out, a very reliable machine that survived and performed such a volume of work at the construction site that it was put on a pedestal at the time, and in a prominent place in the workshop. But since any tool should work to the end, she was offered a new place.

After the main stage of the construction of the house was completed, I still had a whole sheet of plywood 21 mm (FC 4/4), which stood alone for 3 years, and it was time to adapt it somewhere. At that moment, I did not make a separate desk of the table, the whole idea and idea, as I see this, developed in my head, so I did right in place, and the main nodes and materials were selected by the campaign, I ran through what lay in the pantry, workshop. in boxes with mestizations and fasteners and other little things. Accordingly, any modeling was not done, however, for this review, I already transferred the desktop to the 3D model to Sketchup, I tried to present all the constituent elements, the only thing I did not draw nuts and screws, it was already lazy, and it seemed to me more than a waste of time. since, in principle, it is clear and, if that, I will explain during the review. The model shows how and what is assembled, in layers you can remove the enlarged elements, perhaps this model will be useful to someone for repetition or as an idea for their implementation.

And so, he took a sheet of plywood 21 mm, marked and cut out the base of the table with a dimensions of 1100 mm x 820 mm with a circular saw, the table size is large, but it was a universal table on which small details and sheet materials of a large format, plywood could be sawed Laminated wood-piece stove for cabinet furniture.

Then he turned the resulting sheet, mark it, laid a circular saw with a raised disk on the sheet, with a pencil, circled the saw on the contour of the saw, and with a milling cutter with a groove mill, he chose the material in the resulting projection of the sole to a depth of about 12 mm. The sole of the circular saw is then inserted into the resulting recess. The handle and the protective casing of the disk are previously removed from the saw.

4 holes for M8 bolts were made along the contour of the sole of the saw in the base of the table. Using nuts M8 were installed from the upper part of the base (reverse). The sole of the saw is installed in the recess and pressed through reinforced washers with bolt m8 to the base of the table.

Then we loosen the mechanism for adjusting the depth of the saw cut, turn on the saw into the outlet and, clicking on the saw, we drink the base of the table to the full depth, from the back (working) side of the table, we have a disk. Here is the most important point. when setting a saw in a recess, not to confuse its direction, in which direction the disk should rotate (the disk from the side of the table should rotate), I almost mixed up, I almost mixed it up, noticed well in time. By the way, in the model in Sketchup, I used a 3D Warehouse saw, and if you look at the photo of my table, I drank the drive in Sketchup models (makita) and in real life (hitachi) are mirrored, located from different sides of the saw. Found only such a model of saws, and left it, the main thing was correctly indicated the direction of rotation of the disk. The saws are still different for everyone.

Already in this form on the table you can saw:. We have the base of the table on chairs / stools / boxes (I placed in the workshop on one side on the shelf of the rack, the other on the back of the chair against the wall);. relative to the saw disc, using a long ruler, draw a axial fishing line for a cutting trimmer.;. We take a long aluminum corner (or a beam, or even board), place a coal relative to the cutting line, we attach clamps to the table. and we have an impromptu temporary parallel emphasis.

In this way, I further sawed all the other details of the table while he was slowly going.

First of all, I decided to cut a saw cover for diluting. For the first time in my life, I was able to instantly, without fitting, get completely identical details, like the Brothers Gemini. Casing. four walls made of plywood 10 mm, bottom from a piece of wood.fiber slab. We glue everything on PVA and self.tapping screws.

To connect the vacuum cleaner, I made a hole in the lower corner of the box with a bimetal crown under a sewer fitting 50 mm. To fasten the fitting to the case, I cut the fitting sawn at the sector, inserted the fitting, heated the sector and bent them to the box of the box, then walked through each sector with small screws, the gaps from the reverse side were flooded with a heat.muffle. It turned out tight, and from the careless movement a fitting hose will definitely not tear out of the case.

Selection of tools and materials

At the very beginning of the work, you will need to make sure that all the most necessary, namely raw materials, a set of tools suitable for performing work, will come in handy throughout all actions.

To create a sawing machine, you will need the following materials:

    Plywood, the thickness of which is from 2 to 3 cm, or a piece of laminated woody plate identical according to the data.

  • Wood bars, the size of which is 44 cm.
  • The building corners that are made of metal are required 12-15 pieces.
  • Bolts of various purposes and marking, as well as different lengths of self.tapping screws.
  • Adhesive composition that is used for carpentry.
  • Products for processing products from rust and moisture.
  • Cable.
  • External outlet.
  • Switch.

This set of materials is needed for a standard design of a conventional size with an area of ​​slightly larger than 1 m 2. It will be possible to work on such a machine-steel machine with almost any manual disc saws, exceptions will be tools with a small disk diameter, because when attaching the tool to the countertop, cutting depth, approximately 1-2 cm, will be signs.

To perform work, you will need the following set of tools:

  • Thick pencil or marker.
  • Construction roulette, metal ruler, corner.
  • Electric jigsaw.
  • Electric screwdriver.
  • Electric drill.
  • Sander.
  • Sandpaper.

Next, we suggest considering how to make a sawing machine.

Process of creation

To make with your own hands for an electric circular saw a multifunctional design is quite simple, but you should definitely know that in order for the manufacturing process to be correct, everything must be done in existing stages.

So, the correct and strict adherence to recommendations is required so that there are no problems or even difficulties.

    First, the master must make a drawing and a plan for our sawing product. According to the drawings, the work will be done much easier, and the risks will also be minimized to do something poorly or incorrectly. At the planning stage, the size of the future design should be taken into account as much as possible.
    After the plan and the approximate sketch of the product is created, as well as the preparation of all the necessary materials and the set of tools, and you can start creating the table case. A shirt needs to align all the faces of a wooden bar. Further, from the sheet material and already leveled wooden bars, the base should be collected, the dimensions of which will be determined even when planning. The surface area of ​​the processing, as a rule, is from about 1 to 1.5 m 2. All details should be fastened with each other with self.tapping screws and bolts. At the end of the work, you will succeed without the lower and upper part.

To make a sawing machine from a circular manual saw, the third stage will be the manufacture of a countertop for a machine machine, it should be cut out of the sheet laminated wood-bruise or plywood based on frame dimensions. The countertop must be the same area, or a little less. The main thing is that she in no case outweighs the body in one direction. If the lid on the table is made of non.laminated material, then it will need to be additionally fabricated and trimmed. Further, using a pencil and ruler on the countertop, marking places should be made for attaching an electric saw to it, as well as the upper part of the countertop on the main case.

note, that the length of the legs will be determined individually, under the growth of the operator, who will perform work behind such a sawing machine. Ideally, the countertop, and therefore the plate itself, should be located slightly higher than the waist belt.

    Another step will be the mounting of the countertop directly to the body. At a distance of about three centimeters from the edge, the holes should be drilled at the corners of the plywood, and then drill holes in the corner bars to further fix the bolts in them. After that, connect the parts using steel wings M8.

In fact, make a machine from a circular saw is easy. After the design is assembled, a special switch should be fixed on the table, which will adjust the inclusion and off of the saw with an electric motor. To do this, cut a hole for the circuit breaker in the housing and fix everything with auxiliary bolts, special adhesive composition or even a construction screed. The switch must necessarily go electric power directly to the saw, which means that it will need to be attached to any electric source in your workshop using a cable. It will be attached from the lower part of the countertop using construction mounts.

How to install a circular saw in the machine?

Modernization of the circular saw

To facilitate the work on the ending of wooden parts on the circular, he made a small countertop for it, which manually moves along the machine table with a workpiece mounted on it.

From dense plywood 12 cm thick cut the base (see. Photo p. 1) on the width of the table and 40 cm long, it can be longer. To the upper edge of the base attached with screws the bar for blanks (2) with a cross section of 35 × 65 mm 5-6 cm long larger than the base width of the base.

With the help of two bolts, the M10 recorded a metal plate (3) designed to fasten the clamps (4), which I use for the fiction of the processed parts.

Also at the bar, for convenience, fixed the measured ruler (5) (used the cutting section). From below, to the long side of the plywood base, I screwed the rail (c) equal to the thickness of the table, to it perpendicularly (parallel to the base) attached the bar (7) of the same material.

Thanks to the resulting border, equal to the thickness of the table, the countertop with a workpiece easily moves without a backlash along the machine.

For the convenience of moving to the site, I attached a window handle (8).

Thanks to such refinement, it is convenient to handle and cut the parts of the required size, the time of these works is reduced at times and the probability of injuring the hands is reduced.

The most suitable instruments for homemade

In addition to the above parameters, an important factor when choosing a manual disc saw is the quality of its performance. To date, the most suitable for remaking models of manual disk saws are Bosch PKS 55 and Hammer CRP 1300 D.

Bosch PKS 55

When developing a model, the designers of the Bosch concern made Accent for sawing with emphasis on a hard surface. That is why the supporting plate made of structural steel has additional stiffener ribs. Optimally selected power indicators and depths of the sawdish allow the use of a disk saw for sawing blanks made of hard wood, as well as thin.walled aluminum products and other non.ferrous metals.

The main technical characteristics of Bosch PKS 55 are:

  • manufacturer. Bosch;
  • model. PKS 55;

Rubani machine with a circular saw video

Strictness and sawing are mandatory stages of wood processing. They are carried out on special equipment. In the recent past, combined machines performing both operations were common in production. But with increasing performance, such devices have ceased to meet the requirements of the market. Therefore, circular mechanisms with a fuganka use mainly small handicraft workshops and amateurs.


The machine combines the capabilities of the circular saw and a landscape. The circular is used to saw large volumes of timber, boards, laminate, plywood, drywall, soft alloys. Sprinking is carried out quickly, accurately and precisely in size, which cannot be achieved using a hand tool.

Fugan is designed to remove the upper, rough layer of material and giving smoothness to the workpiece. Tree is treated on fugitive machines exclusively. There are bilateral models that simultaneously process two planes. Operations performed on circular and fugitive machines are carried out one after another, so it is logical to combine them into a single device.


The circular machine is a table table on which a vertical saw circle is placed, guide, joints for sawing at an angle.

The foundation of a fuganka is also a Stanin table, in which the shaft of knives is built in. The table is made from two parts whose position is regulated relative to the shaft of the knives. The engine in both devices is located below, under the countertop.

A combined machine is a countertop on which a saw disk and a knife shaft are installed. Both mechanisms work from a single engine, movement is transmitted by belt transmission. On such models, fugus can only be done on one side.

Advantages and disadvantages

The main advantages of a scurry combination in one device with a circular:


  • Universality: one device provides wide opportunities for processing blanks;
  • Compactness: individual mechanisms take up a lot of space, and double space savings are achieved while maintaining the functionality;
  • Material benefit: one device is cheaper than two;
  • Convenience and simplicity of operation: it elementarily turns from a landscape into a circular and vice versa. Factory models provide convenient mounts for parts, protective boxes that the masters protect against injuries, as well as chipolate.
  • Productivity: high performance is more needed in mini-masters than in the household. If you purchase a machine with a capacity of 2.5. 3 kilowatts, it will cope with any tasks in the shortest time and is suitable for a small workshop. The home workshop does not require bulky and gluttonous equipment. 1 kilowatts of power is enough;
  • Large selection of models: assortment in the market from desktop to units with several 12-kilowatt engines operating from a three-phase network;
  • Accuracy: Factory models are equipped with a sawdust collection system using a special vacuum cleaner.
  • The only electric motor: if the motor blocks the engine when cutting, the work will stop. Therefore, the station wagon should not overload;
  • The danger of injuries: work on any machine is dangerous, but combined devices are often not sufficiently equipped with protective devices covering one or another working body.

Despite many advantages, only specialized equipment is used in large industries. In conditions of flow, it is more efficient to work on the principle of one operation. one machine. one worker. Therefore, combined models belong to the category of amateur equipment.

Homemade fugger machine with circular

To optimize the structure, homemade machines are equipped with one working shaft, from which the drive goes to the saw and the knife shaft. It is easier to place all the necessary mechanisms.

The support frame can be boiled from the corner or adapted the base from the footwear machine. In this case, the width of the fugging will be equal to the width of the countertop. Summer additions are welded from the channel (crosses, tsars).

The rotor is advisable to use a 3-north. This is a very important detail that it is desirable to order to a professional. Double.sided knives and a circle for sawing are put on it. It is better to take the discs immediately with carbide tooths. The disc is suitable for 30 cm with a diane of 30 cm, which performs the depth of the cut up to 8 cm. Fugan removes at once up to 2 millimeters of wood in a layer up to 26 cm wide.

The machine is additionally equipped with salads. a mobile mechanism that moves along the edge of the cicircase countertop and helps to process the edges of the blanks with a bevel.

The shaft of the knives is installed in the middle of the countertops on the bearings attached by bolts. The drive goes to the shaft on the left. The shaft of the shaft with a diameter of 32 millimeters is located on the right hand from the workplace.

On the neck of the shaft, you can install a grinding circle, cutter or circular disk. In this case, the tool is attached to the shaft with a nut with the right thread! This is an important detail!

The countertop is made of three parts. Material. steel sheet 5 millimeters. Two parts of the same size are adjacent to the knife shaft: receiving and diving tables. You can additionally consider the mechanism for adjusting their position regarding the shaft, for example, using screws or gaskets.

The level of the countertop of the circular saw is set mechanically. The device is also provided for setting an angle, it is made on the basis of an analogue for a hacksaw. If necessary, it can be removed from the countertop, it is fixed with brackets to the edges of the countertop from the side of the circular.

Here, a guide line made of a metal corner is fixed on the bolts, the width of the part corresponds to the gap between the circle of the circular and the guide. Thanks to the ruler, you do not need to mark the fishing line for the cutting trimmer along the entire length of the workpiece.

How to make a flight from an electric rhinet with your own hands. instructions for making a flight machine

Flight machine is one of the varieties of a woodworking machine. It is used in the woodworking industry to give the necessary thickness to boards and blanks. It is expensive to buy a flight, but it can be done with your own hands using a regular electric shirt, the article will consider a simple manufacturing algorithm.

Electric shirt manufacturing options

There are many ways to manufacture a flight machine on the basis of an electric shirt. All of them are easy to manufacture and do not require the use of a special tool. The most practical of them are:

  • Flight of the side stringing. Suitable for processing small planks and bars. Such an installation is easy to manufacture, and if necessary, the roofs can be quickly dismantled and used for its intended purpose. The disadvantage is the need for constant monitoring of processing thickness, since there are no clamping rollers in it;
  • Manual flight machine. Has a more complex design and requires more time to manufacture. With it, you can process boards and bars of larger length. In addition, the design uses clamping videos, which allow minimizing the error during processing.

How to make a wood.based woodhead at home

If necessary, you can make such a machine at home. This does not require the use of special equipment or the availability of special technical skills.

The simplest machine can be made by fixing the shirts on the table in a side or inverted position. advanced models require more time and effort.

What will be needed for manufacturing

For the manufacture of a home.made flight, you need a minimum set of materials and tools, which often is in the arsenal of each owner. It includes:

    ; ;

  • a sheet of metal 0.5 mm thick;
  • leaf laminated woody plate;
  • metal pipe;
  • manual drill;
  • a set of drills on wood and metal;
  • fasteners;
  • set of wrenches.

Which rubbish to choose for this purpose

Electric rubbish is the main working body of the machine. Therefore, before starting the assembly, it is necessary to choose a tool with optimal parameters. The main technical characteristics that should be taken into account when choosing a rubank are:

  • Strict width. Most of modern electric rhubones are equipped with support soles and blades 82 mm wide. This is enough for household work;
  • The power of the electric motor. To carry out high.quality harvesting of blanks, it is best to use shirts with an electric motor power from 800 watts. This will allow performing high.quality strict;
  • The speed of rotation of the blades. There is a direct dependence between the number of revolutions of the knife unit and the quality of the strict. In other words, the more revolutions the blades make, the cleaner the processed surface is obtained.

The following tools will be the best choice for the manufacture of a flight machine: manufacturing instructions

To make a household flight machine, you need to prepare a workplace and perform the following actions:

  • Attach a plywood sheet to the side faces of the rubbish. Marking and cut the template along the contour of the protective casing. He must go on a casing of an electric motor without gaps.
  • Similarly, make a template of a different shape.
  • Transfer the contours of templates to sheets of plywood 10 mm thick and cut them. Then it is necessary to make two strips with a thickness of 10×10 mm, which will subsequently serve as guides.
  • From the bar, make holding crosses. They should fit as tightly as possible to the front and back parts of the armored handle.
  • With the help of a milling machine or an electrician, according to the previously marked marking, to cut the longitudinal grooves. In the future, they will be necessary to adjust the thickness of the strict.
  • By missing the crossbar under the back of the knob of the electric rhuban, connect the cut parts. To fix the jumper, it is better to use screws with a secret head.
  • At the back of the workpiece, attach the racks prepared in advance and apply marking on them. Then it is necessary to trim them on the applied markup.
  • For further fastening of blanks, a through hole for bolts is drilled in the upper part. In the same place, using a cutter, a hole is made with a depth of 4 mm. Then fasteners are clogged with a hammer into it.
  • Having combined both blanks, they must be stuck with bolts with pressed wooden washers. As an alternative, you can use bolts with lamb heads.
  • In a wooden bar, make a hole for installing a guide hairpin in it. For the reliability of fixation, it is better to use a counter.player.
  • In the front of the future machine, install a bar with a guide hairpin. Fix it with screws with secret heads.
  • Collect the outer frame similarly to the internal. On a guide hairpin to adjust the position to put a barack nut.
  • Make a guide canvas. To do this, in wooden bars using a chisel or milling machine, perform rounded gutters, the diameter of which will correspond to the diameter of the guide pipes, and install them as shown in the picture below.
  • Prepare the desktop. It consists of a sheet of plywood 10 mm thick. Limiters are installed along the edges, on which guides of the rails will subsequently record.
  • The guide pipes must be interconnected using plywood strings and connect the vacuum cleaner pipe. After that, you can start work.

DIY circular saw crosscut jig | Learn from my mistakes | FREE PLANS

After watching the video, you can familiarize yourself with the nuances of the manufacture of a flight machine, as well as see its practical application.

What is the circular saw

In everyday life and production, a circular saw is necessary for sawing various materials (wood, slate, GKL, soft metal, plywood, etc. D.). This manual electrical tool (in standard configuration) is designed to perform a straight.line cut with a depth of 40 to 140 mm (most of the models produced by manufacturers allow the cut at a right angle of up to 85 mm, but for construction sites there is a line of more powerful equipment). During the operation, the device holds the operator tightly in his hands and conducts sawing, moving along the processed product. At the same time, there are no restrictions on the size of the workpieces in length and width. There is the possibility of sawing at an angle to the surface of the part.

Pil models differ in power. The most budget devices have a capacity of up to 1.2 kW and are designed to saw blanks up to 4.5 cm thick. They are great for household needs, periodic work over short time intervals and are simple and unpretentious. If you need to perform a cut up to 6.5 cm, and you need to do this often for a long time, you will need a semi.professional tool with a capacity of up to 1.8 kW. To perform production tasks, a professional technique with a capacity of up to 2.2 kW is available, withstanding long loads and capable of cutting parts up to 8.5 cm thick. In addition, a tool is produced for use at woodworking enterprises, capable of sawing blanks with a thickness of up to 14.1 cm. Its power reaches 5.5 kW, and weight. up to 100 kg.

Important! For home workshops, it is usually quite enough devices with a capacity of about 1 kW. Before acquiring the model, this moment is important to take into account, since overpayment for the saw itself and for the electricity it consumed, as a rule, is not justified by the necessity.

When choosing a tool for a tool, you need to pay attention to their technical parameters.

  • The angle of sharpening of the teeth. Soft materials are sawn with disks having teeth with a slope towards the rotation of the disk. Models with a negative sharpening angle are required to work with metal.
  • The number of teeth. For sawing various materials, you should select discs with different number of teeth: for soft. models with a large number of teeth, for hard. with a small. For example, for wood, the minimum number of teeth is 24.

To use the circular saw for a long period of time, it is important that it does not weigh too much, it is ergonomic, and the discs are well sharpened. Hold the unit in your hand for a long time. not at all easy. Operator’s fatigue can lead to a decrease in the quality of sawing. Therefore, many masters working with saws are practiced by installing them on the table.

The meaning of such a device is to fix the saw housing under the countertop so that only a disk for sawing is above the table. The workpiece moves along the countertop and is sawn by a rotating disk. Such a stationary device greatly facilitates the work and allows you to carry out continuous work without loss of quality and quickly. Manufacturers are offered a large number of saw models placed on tables. Independent production of the structure allows not only to save money, but also to get the unit at the disposal in accordance with its own requirements.

What should be a table for a saw

When installing a stationary site for processing materials, it is necessary to provide several nuances.

  • The design should be stable and stiff.
  • The material from which the table is made should differ in strength and durability.
  • It is important that the surface of the table is perfectly flat.
  • It is necessary to provide grounding.

Taking into account the foregoing, you can be sure of the reliability of the established design and good quality of processed blanks, regardless of the volume of work.

The main components of the table: frame and smooth surface for placing blanks.

The material from which the structures are made differs depending on the purpose, installation location and frequency of use. For household needs, you can make a design of boards and plywood and install it, for example, in the garage. Work with large volumes of materials involves increased requirements for the strength and reliability of the structure. The best solution in this case will be a frame from a metal profile. To reduce vibrations and more stability, many even concrete legs in the floor.

  • The saw disk should be located strictly perpendicular to the surface of the table;
  • The standard and optimal size of the countertop is 1.2 x 1.2 m, but it may vary depending on individual requirements (if the countertop is long, additional supporting legs may be needed);
  • The height of the table depends on the growth of the master, usually it varies within 0.8 1.2 m;
  • The operator is more convenient if the table is installed on the legs, and not on continuous sheets, for example, plywood;
  • The width of the gap into which the disk fixed below should not exceed the thickness of the disk by more than 2 mm, otherwise the tool can quickly fail due to clogging;
  • The circular saw should be placed in the center of the table so that there is no strong displacement of the center of gravity;
  • It is recommended to display buttons for the operation of the saw on the countertop or the upper part of the legs of the table.

Important! In many models drank holes for fixing the sole on the table are already provided by manufacturers.

“Circular from the circular

Among the self-taught carpenters, it is believed that the transformation of a manual circular saw into an easel tool is the simplest method of obtaining “three hares” at once, namely:

  • high quality cut, guaranteed by high rotation of the saw;
  • shaft installed in the collector engine on bearings, with the honor of withstanding the radial load;
  • Ideal (console) disk fastening, it makes it possible to relatively quickly replace the cutting tool, so the circular disassembly is not required.

The main advantage of the manufacture of such a machine is a “native” engine that guarantees a maximum performance due to the perfect rotating moment, the optimal turnover. Other advantages of this solution:

  • Relatively simple fixation that allows you to quickly remove the saw in case of great need.
  • A powerful engine that provides long work due to the ability to withstand significant loads.
  • Normal thermal regime that guarantees forced ventilation of this manual tool.
  • The ability to get a sufficient cut depth using large diameter discs. 60-75 mm-a value that gives a good chance to make high-quality blanks for various products made at home.

Stanin and countertop

Alteration of a manual saw into a circular machine begins with the manufacture of a table (or hull-hull), on the back of which the manual power tool will then be attached so that part of the cutting edge protrudes above the surface of the countertop.

The shape and size of the table is chosen, focusing on the dimensions of future lumber. If they plan to make blanks of small sizes, then there is enough length of 1500 mm, width-600-700 mm. For the manufacture of the bed, the circular is suitable for a steel corner with a shelf width equal to 25-30 mm. From above and below, the structure is enhanced by spacers made of the same corner or reinforcement. This option is optimal to provide the machine frame with maximum stiffness.

For countertops, a laminated wood-and-scale stove or OSP is more often chosen, some masters stop on the faner, the thickness of this material is 15-20 mm, but you can take a thinner material, and then connect 2 sheets together. The elements that make up the countertop should not have the same size at all, to have a symmetrical location relative to the bed. The main thing is that the structure does not threaten the risk of overturning.

In the countertop, they make a backwater designed to extend the disk. That part of the surface of the table that will fit the cutting tool is often closed with tin, a metal sheet (aluminum, steel), textolite or plastic. This solution makes it possible to maximize the movement of wooden lumber as much as possible.

Modification of saw management

Such operations can only be performed in one case: if the tool has the warranty period. For the convenience of controlling the circular machine, the contacts of the buttons and the shredt (lever) are displayed to the external electric circuit breaker, which is mounted on the case in a convenient place, but where random presses are completely excluded.

If the owner provides in the future the opportunity to periodically remove a hand tool, then the contacts are fixed with electrical tape or a clamp. Circular cord in this case is included in a carrier equipped with a switch button.

The guide line

It is necessary for the exact cut of material of different widths, so this line (emphasis) is obliged to be able to move parallel to the cutting edge. Such an element is also made from a steel corner. The countertop makes slots in which the ends of the guide are attached with the help of screws.

A simpler option is a pine board. Its width is 40 mm, its length is 200 mm more than that of the table. First, the nuts are pressed into the lower part of the protruding edges, and M-shaped hooks are fixed with screws. After installing the board on the countertop, the circular are attracted with screws, thanks to them the hooks rise and reliably fasten the ruler. It can also be easily moved to any place.

Circular grinder

This option of manufacturing a machine is more popular, since a rare owner who loves to do everything does not, or is not going to purchase in the near future, a corner grinding machine. The first of the stages of the manufacture of a stationary saw installation is also the manufacture of a special table for fastening the corner grinder.

In this case, the process is complicated, since the main difficulty is reflection on how to attach an angular grinder to the bed: how to make a sliding emphasis and an axial handle. However, there is already a ready.made way that allows you to get a reliable connection.

  • Two segments of a steel corner are taken to make a sliding stop. They attach them on both sides of the sawing disk. Then they are connected by a transverse connection (bolts and nuts). Wages are used to ensure the necessary gap.
  • Previously, a metal strip clamp is pulled onto the tool, its screw screed should be below. The metal strip, doubled, is attached to the holes designed for a sliding stop.
  • In the gearbox, the corner grinder makes several holes for the bolts: first the housing is disassembled, then indicated points for drilling. With their help, an axial handle will be fixed. This element is made of a rod or metal pipe. The handle gives the form of the staple. At the ends. in the places of fasteners to the gearbox. the holes are drilled.
  • Make a barbell, obliged to regulate the depth of the saw. It is made from a piece of a metal rod. The loop is formed on one side, then it is slightly rumbled, drill a hole designed for a stubborn bolt. The thread is cut at the other end, they first wind up one reliable nut, and after assembling the structure. the second. Adjustment of the cut depth will occur when they are pulled up or weakened.

Not too complex actions will make it possible to get a full.fledged circular machine for cutting different materials. They come in the same way with a drill, which can some extent replace the corner grinder. To avoid potential mistakes, it is better to use drawings that every “suffering” can find on the Internet if desired.

Making countertops

Work on the manufacture of this part of the equipment is carried out in the following sequence: we start with the marking of a piece of plywood, carried out with the calculation so that its edges are flush with the edges of the prepared sheet of iron. After marking, using a hacksaw or an electric jigsaw, you can cut a plywood blank of the required size. If desired, it will be possible to process its edges with a cutter, although it is not necessary to do this at all (the main requirement presented to this element is its reliability, not attractiveness).

Upon completion of these operations, the surface of the countertop is carefully processed (grinned) with an emery skin of medium granularity.

Then, on its lower part, the position of the slot under the saw disk is preliminarily outlined. To do this, it is necessary to determine the size of the sole prepared for the installation of a circular saw. For the convenience of measurements, the disk from the saw is simply removed, after which it will be possible to easily determine the size of the seat.

For the convenience of marking the countertop, the saw disk is removed

At the end of its preparation, you should take a circular saw and try on it at the installation site. If necessary, the position of the points of its fastening is adjusted (at the same time, the contours of the slot under the saw disk are clarified).

The finished countertop from plywood is closed with a steel sheet mounted on it using self.tapping screws. It will subsequently apply a special marking to the working surface, which allows you to adjust the position of the wood blank in the process of processing it.

How to make a shaft for circular with your own hands

In the overall design of the Circular, the shaft is the main element that forms the machine as a whole. For its manufacture, you will need a steel circle of the brand 45. Just make this important detail on your own only if you have your own current machine or access to it is possible. The diameter of the workpiece should correspond to the size of the saw discs, which are supposed to be used.

The main sizes of the landing opening of the discs:

From the above indicators and the size of the shaft for the circular is selected.

For the manufacture of the shaft, you will need a steel circle of the brand 45.

The most common is the diameter of the hole 32 mm. It is such a planting nest that have discs with different sizes of external diameter. As an option, you can make a thinner shaft so that there is an opportunity to perform a “jewelry” job. Then, to use large discs, an adapter will be used. It is worth complicating the construction of a home circular in this way only in cases where a professional will use it.

Saw discs are installed between two flanges and pressed using a nut, which is wound on a thread made on the edge of the work surface of the shaft.

note! The thread should be left. During the inevitable jerk when starting the circular, the nut will be twisted in this position, and not vice versa.

Sowing places for bearings are determined taking into account the size of the latter. The most shaft has the largest diameter. If the indicator is significant, the rotation will create an additional load on the belt. Drilling will help get rid of the problem, which will facilitate the heavy part of the shaft.

The diameter of the workpiece should correspond to the size of the saw discs.

Advantages of a portable saw

There are several very important technical characteristics, thanks to which this tool is recommended to be used for such purposes.

  • You can install a disk with an external diameter of 350 mm on the saw, which allows you to cut lumber with a thickness of 70–85 mm. On the machine, this depth is slightly reduced, you can cut boards with a thickness of 60–75 mm. This is enough for most home.made wooden crafts. from complex furniture to simple toys.
  • The engine power is at least 2 kW, it withstands significant loads, and a special effective forced ventilation quickly removes heat, which allows mechanisms to work for a long period of time with normal thermal modes.
  • The speed of rotation of the saw shaft meets the existing requirements for woodworking cutting tools. This allows you to get excellent quality of the pumping and comply with safety regulations.
  • The manual saw can be fixed to the table in such a way that if necessary, it is quickly removed and used as usual as usual. over, all the initial technical characteristics are completely preserved.

In connection with such advantages of portable saws, we will not consider dubious options for the manufacture of stationary circular machines, but we will only dwell on this.

The table is made of an old laminated woody stove, but a special moisture-resistant plywood for concrete work is great. If you have the opportunity, then buy this material, you will not regret. It is better to choose foreign manufacturers, but it will cost more.

Make the cutting of material for the countertop.

The specific dimensions do not have much importance, proceed from the size of the shield and free space in the workshop. You need to understand that on a long table, the workpieces are better held, which facilitates the cut of long boards.

To ensure a flat and perpendicular cut, use the prepared device, the rail should rest on the edge of the wood-boring plate, and the saw slide along the strip of plywood fixed by the clamp.

We have the central part of the machine table has a width of 36 cm, two side 18 cm. Between them, wooden rails from solid wood are installed for attaching a cross.cut carriage. Such a carriage greatly simplifies ending and cut details.

circular, assembly, frame

Put the saw on the central part of the table and with an awl, circle the contour of the metal site.

Drill holes in the corners of the table, you can do this with an ordinary drill or on a drilling machine.

Carefully cut the opening for the saw with an electric jigsaw.

Using it as a template, draw an insert and cut it out with a jigsaw.

There are options not to make an insert, then in this case the maximum cutting depth decreases. Make a specific decision depending on the planned use of the saw, but practices are always advised to count on maximum parameters. The fact is that no one can foresee the requirements for the machine for a long perspective.

Fasten the saw on the table. Adapt various improvised materials for this, select them in length and thickness.

Important. Never tighten the screws in the wood-cutting plate without preliminary drilling the hole. The plate is not designed for such loads and can crack.

Fasten the saw on the back of the table.

Install the insert in place. It is made of durable material, preferably steel or aluminum, but plastic is also suitable. The liner should withstand strong shock loads that occur during sawing, the wood-based stove cannot cope with such tasks.

The part is fixed to the sole of the saw, you need to prepare holes and use various metizes.

Make markings under the sidewalls of the countertops, they will be fixed using self.tapping screws. Fasten all parts of the table on the transverse rods to the glue. On the front side, they are additionally screwed with self.tapping screws with secret heads, the holes are necessarily angry under them.

Check the stroke of wooden racks. If they wedge in some places, then you need to find the reason and eliminate it. Reiki should slide freely, but without shaking.

Practical advice. It is much easier to install metal profiles instead of rails. This requires less time, and the quality of the machine is much increased.
