Default Table Saw Score!

Ok, maybe not a score to some, but I'll get some use out of it.

Seen this out on trash day in a near by neighborhood, and since the guy was outside I asked if he minded if I grabbed it, he didn't care but seemed like a real A-HOLE, lol. I mean I'm happy I got it free don't get me wrong, but he wasn't friendly at all and I'm always very polite when talking to someone I don't know like this.


Sure, it has no fence which is a pretty important piece, but can make something up for that. And yes the table itself isn't very big, so to do larger panels for boxes and such I might need to add on a bit, but still will be handy. Was free so I have room to make improvements down the road.

The problems:

Blade was stuck in the lower position
Plastic crank that adjusts blade height broken / missing.
Cord was frayed where it entered the saw base.
Needed cleaned.

Disassembled it and cleaned all the old dried up grease and saw dust out (this was the reason it would not raise the blade), the rods that the motor mount slide on were basically stuck. Put it back together with a light coat of grease and lastly cut the bad part of the cord off and rewired it.


Will need to buy a crank arm for the height adjustment, but can do it by hand as it is, though not pleasant and slow. I may see what I have laying around and fab something up.

I also might still need to align things a bit after reassembly.

Perhaps not the greatest saw, and I've got by with a jigsaw for most things and occasional use of a circular saw, but will be handy. I like that it has braking and stops the blade pretty quick upon shutdown.


Forgive the bad pics, I didn't have much light.














It didn't come with a blade, just happened to have a pack of new cheap 10" blades even though a little rusty.












The scary method I was using prior for some things I needed to cut, haha; hey it works.Mainly used for vinyl siding / soffit material / fascia boards. Used a bungy cord to hold the guard out of the way; felt a bit unsafe though and I was very cautious with it. Not recommended.

Yeah, I mean it needed a bit of work, but not ready to thrown out yet in my opinion!

I went ahead and rounded up some scrap materials I have laying around and made up a quick crank arm / knob to make adjusting easier. I'll admit I botched a couple holes and eyeballed lining them up, so not totally straight, lol, but it will be fine for now.

Next will be trying to make a fence at some point.


Anyway, got the adjuster done at least.

Aluminum flat bar for arm, PVC pipe for spacer, wood dowel rod for knob, and partially threaded bolt so the knob could rotate. Tapped the flat bar for the bolt and of course cut the bolt to size.



Not great, but quick fix and functional. Was going to round the corners, but decided not to bother. Also thought about sanding it / painting, but that isn't important.

Looks good but how many tables are you going to even make with it? 5? 10?

Next time get an enclosure saw. Smh.

Yeah I don't know much about table saws to be honest, I just know these small job site style aren't really set up for larger sheets, although can be added on to help accommodate bigger pieces. I may try to do something like this down the road.

Either way I will get some use out of this even for small things.

So last night I realized there was another part missing. Basically just a cover that directs the saw dust down towards the dust collection outlet. Otherwise more dust floats around inside the machine which you don't really want to happen.

Seeing as I'm a cheap @$$, I made it out of an old stainless microwave cover, lol. Was a little flimsy so I had to add a small bend towards the top to stiffen it up, should work fine though and it plenty stiff now.

Part that was missing:




Old microwave cover (I save sheet metal for projects like this), this was a trash pick as well a year ago so I have basically no money in this.



I don't know if the bend will have any ill effects on directing the dust, but I think it will be totally fine and if anything help the flow.

Just scored another table saw, but this time in my sisters neighborhood; good thing I had to stop out there today. Even had the fence sticking out of the trash can, lol. They were also tossing out a radial saw, though not sure its exact use. I'm sure both items will need some repair work, the Ryobi table saw has a busted crank handle and the on off switch seems broken, possibly other problems.

Maybe not the greatest, but hey, free.








On another note, I seen this other fence sticking out of a trash can near my area last week, I thought at first it was a TV wall mount, but when I walked up to it I seen it was a fence with rails. It doesn't quite fit my Makita table (about an inch short), so will sell the fence and buy the correct one. I was really hoping it would've fit. Was kind of weird I happened upon this fence though right after getting the other saw.
