Sorry to everyone that visited this link in the past months and only saw text. The pictures were lost not only from the server but also from the hard drive. I took new pictures and uploaded them. Hope this project helps you with your own thoughts about building a table saw for your workshop.
This fantastic machine took about 10 days to build including 4 tries to make the parallel fence and 2 tries to make the angle guide. It is primarily made of MDF, plywood and aluminium. The hand circular saw that was installed on the underside took some time to install and get tuned. It looked like an easy project in the beginning but it ended up posing many problems during design.
It took some time to perfectly position the circular saw. If it failed it would have been a real drawback at the initial phase, bringing doubt to mind. However its success provided the courage to move forward and complete the job. Throughout the year, the table saw was sitting in the middle of the workshop without its guides.
There are a few things more fulfilling than building a precice piece of machinery that opens up possibilities for other design and making. This machine will also enable an easier construction of other guides and machines. Orama plans to experiment with the design of various furniture in the near future. It has long been the plan to build this machine! SUCCESS! Any questions about it? Your questions and comments are welcomed!
