Alexander Khritonenkov's homemade tablesawAlexander left a link to this video in a comment on my homemade table saw video. I have not heard further from Alex, but I assume he's ok with getting coverage, so I took a few stills from this video. Alex's video is a bit long. I added it to the bottom of this page.
I'm not convinced this is terribly safe - a saw insert needs to be quite sturdy so as not to bend when pushing down on the stock, and not to give way in the event of a kickback. I think a 6 mm or thicker piece of birch plywood to put over top of the whole table would probably be better.
What I like overall about this one is that it's easy to get the saw back out, and that he built this without a whole workshop full of tools. I wouldn't recommend doing exactly the same thing, but I think there's some good inspiration in this one.
Finally, his video. Straight from the camera, no editing (actually, a pretty decent video, considering that)
