  • Also read - Circular saw or table saw?
  • Also read - Circular saw as a table saw - how does that work?
  • Also read - Circular saw or capp saw?
  • The hand circular saw can hardly be securely fastened and free
  • The safety when working is not given
  • The hand circular saw can not be served safely from the position before the table

Security concerns

Basically important for the safe work with the table saw (159,00 € at Amazon *) are the following things:

  • A firmly mounted splinter protection
  • A permanently mounted cover for the saw blade
  • a trail limit for the saw blade when it is turned off

All these things can not be ensured when installing into a simple, self-made table or a machine table. The required occupational safety would not be given in any case, by working on such a self-made table one would be roughly endangered. Such a self-construction is by no means advisable.

There are still problems to ensure a parallel stop sufficiently firm and accurately install a transverse stop and ensure a correct position of the saw blade and compliance with the required angle.

In these tables, a "true " conversion of the hand circular saw is given to a table saw, also the cut accuracy and the presence of different stops are guaranteed. For such tables, you have to expect for such tables from around 200 - 250 EUR - this is still significantly cheaper than the purchase of a high quality table saw.

Tips & tricks are also superior from the outset, whether you prefer to buy a classic hand circular saw or rather a diving saw. For many home improvement tasks, the immersion saw is certainly the better alternative that brings far more clean cuts.
