    For a long time I've been subscribing to a site/blog called Hack-A-Day ...really cool site that collects and presents unique creations from all over the net.

    Today I stumbled upon this wicked little machine and just couldn't not share with you guys. Very Happy

    Micro DIY Table Saw - Carbide Blade - Oh baby!!! Diy_ta10


    Students in the BASTLI lab at the Swiss Federal Institute of
    Technology Zurich had been stuck using underpowered and unreliable saws
    for quite some time. The saws often got stuck while cutting through PCBs
    and were generally a drag to use. When group member [Mario Mauerer]
    came across a big and powerful brushless motor in his basement, he decided it was time to upgrade the lab’s cutting tools.

    Along with fellow student [Lukas Schrittwieser] he built a test rig
    to see how powerful the motor really was, and satisfied with the
    results, the pair set off to build their own table saw. The enclosure
    was wrapped up pretty quickly, leaving the pair to source a power
    supply. Rather than purchase one, they built a 700w monster switching
    PSU to power their saw.

    As you can see in the video below the saw chews through most things
    with the greatest of ease, but the students added a “boost button” to
    the saw just in case they need to run it at full tilt.

    While we can’t exactly overlook the lack of finger and eye protection
    in their demonstration, it does look like a great little tool to have
    around.

    Cool little project. Not something I need right now but still cool.



    if you come a cross plans for a small mill or router that would be sweet.

    Well most of the plans I have are cnc conversion plans for already existing machinery...but I can throw your way a few cool router table and drill press attachment plans. Smile

    Edit: Almost forgot...Gingery Series: Metalworking Shop [from scrap] has some cool stuff...I mean if you're a technological masochist like me. Razz
