your going to have some fun with that model and yes ive seen it just didnt want that typeMade serious inroads on my home-made table saw this weekend. After pricing up a new one I came across lots of "how to make a table saw from a circular saw" videos on YouTube and as I had a circular saw sat doing nothing and plenty of 3/4" board, I gave it a go:

Still have to finish the rip fence, make a mitre fence, rout 2 mitre slots in the table, fit an on/off switch and a port for dust extraction, possibly cut 2 holes in the front for storage, then give it all a good sanding and put some wax on the table, but I'm very pleased with it so far.
Spent some time squaring the blade to the front of the table before bolting the saw tight then ripped an old piece of board through it using a clamped on temporary fence squared up by eye, and over 24" the width was 4 thou' out so I'm happy enough with that .
I saved the riving knife from the circular saw and it won't be too much work to fit it back on if I extend the slot for the blade.Looks nice! Are you going to add some sort of riving knife/splitter?
Is the nut or thread distorting the collets?View attachment 290456
After recutting the Er40 yesterday and compound being set up, I started on the Chinese ER32, taper was undersized so perfect for recutting. A lot of swearing at my compound handle which is a pain to use and took blood.
Im not sure what is wrong but the result is terrible. The Er32 shaft measures 1 div runout (0.002mm), so the ER40 result is good. The newely cut ER32 taper measures 0.002mm, yet when I mount a shaft in it (using new HSS blanks, as they'll be ground) it is 0.2mm out! I tried several peices of HSS, different sizes/collets/nuts Another go tomorrow.
Other than the table, which is about the largest size I can fit in the mancave, the rest of the build has been made up as it went along.your going to have some fun with that model and yes ive seen it just didnt want that type
this one i prefer
easier and lighter and has way more functions with it
and to note its the size of a proper table saw of the dewalt type

I’ve done a poor mans version which is two halves of a pipe held together with jubilee clips, and a hole drilled for the handle.Just cast a round lump in a bit of pipe then drill a hole through?
I don’t like metal handles, so would always prefer to cast one and then punch a hole throughI’ve done a poor mans version which is two halves of a pipe held together with jubilee clips, and a hole drilled for the handle.
the bonus of the one doubleboost shows is that you melt the lead in the bowl with a torch and then tip it back into the mould. It’s a better operation. For my purposes my way is fine, it’s not like I make loads of them. If I dropped on one cheap I’d have it.
This was a £70 late night eBay purchase two years ago. I've added a front end and some bits, just trying it out before a total stripdown, frame repair, repaint in metallic red. It will be original as far as possible, the V&H pipes will stay, I like the sound of them.
Dont think so I have tried 6 different er32 nuts, 10,12,16,18mm collets with items that should be ground true along length, including a new meter length of 18mm silver steel.Is the nut or thread distorting the collets?
That Scottish guy said - "Ye canny change the laws of physics" - maybe he was wrong?Dont think so I have tried 6 different er32 nuts, 10,12,16,18mm collets with items that should be ground true along length, including a new meter length of 18mm silver steel.
After some head scratching I recut it. Used a 04 radius insert, bumped the speed up to 1000rpm and adjusted the combound gib screws. Got quite a nice finish, unlike yesterday looked rough along length, this was smooth.
Er32 shaft, head, taper, no runout 0.004mm maximium. Put a 10mm bar in and tried some others they are all 0.2mm out
Taper angle and taper runout all good when I check. Its clean, no swarf throwing it off.
Yes, my suggestion is that the thread is formed off line. So it's skewed, and is pressing the collet on one side.Nope and I tried everything. Whats worse is I cant under stand it after 2 evenings scratching my head.
Unless someone has ideas Im going to hide it far corner of the shed and do something else. This 32mm shaft er32 was a great time saver but I have the spindle mount or mt3 I can use instead.
