A cheap & useful cutting table

Alike (by-nc-sa) Intro: A cheap & useful cutting table I make this cutting table 3 years

I make this cutting table 3 years ago, and I was made many things with it.

table 3 years ago, and I was made many things with it. step 1: Any short

step 1: Any short explanation

The pictures are of the first version. Later I took the angle grinder to the center of the table, screwing it to a board of iron of 1/8 inch so that the sharp disk stood out more than 1/2 inch.

The angle grinder is "removes and put", that is to say that I put it when I need to cut something, and then I remove it.

The angle grinder is very very cheap, but amazingly it has lasted many time, almost ten years.

The table is collapsible and was made of a little hard wood, red eucalyptus. It tolerates the bleakness without treatment.

Once again, you forgive my English.

step 2: An improvement

Any weeks after this instructable I did it an improvement: I carried the grinder support toward the center of the table.

As the wood is something thick (1 inch), I did a hole in it and I put in that place an iron plate of 1/8 inch, screwed with various screws, to which I fixed the grinder each time that I am going to use it. Of that way, the cutting blade exceed almost 20 mm.

Sorry the burry pictures.

You can see that the surface of the table has been attacked for the elements, but is not such badly considering that has been more than 5 years under the rain and the sun. I think that will lasts other 10 or more years.

step 3: A new enhancement (july 14, 2009)

Some months ago I buyed a electric welder. Then, I thought the attaching method deserves be reinforced.

Don't look the aesthetics of the weldings, it is horrible, but perform their function.

Today the grinder is much more firmly attached to the cutting table.

Image Notes 1. In a little while I armed this rack with woods that I had to change to the ceiling of the garage. It's nice to work with a powerful and reliable tool as this. NOTE: The broomstick supports the rack because I have not tack it to the wall.

Thanks. Really, the fact to use the grinder it has allowed me to cut metal pipe and some other similar tasks. Another hit (among so many committed errors) was give it a enough height to work standing up. I can use it to support the platter, knife, cutting boards and other accessories when I do "asado" (argentine barbecue).

Your welcome It is quite a good idea to use a grinder though as i suppose with the grinder not being screwed on Always So if anything goes wrong you cant stop it its alot safer

Hey, this is really nice. Can you explain a little better how you've attached the grinder so that you can take it off whenever you need it? I can't tell from the pictures how you have it attached.

Subsequently to this instructable, I did make at the cutting table an important improvement: I carried the grinder support toward the center of the table. As the wood is something thick (1 inch), I did a hole in it and I put in that place an iron plate of 1/8 inch, screwed with various screws, to which I fixed the grinder each time that I am going to use it. Of that way, the cutting leaf exceed almost 20 mm. I will try to take some pictures this weekend.

Very nice. I have a commercially made saw table that is very similar that uses my circular saw. The saw is attached under the table using the square plate surrounding the blade. Four flathead bolts are countersunk in to the top of the table and go down through four brackets that clamp the saw plate tight to the bottom. The power cord plugs into at switch activated by a bar running along the front of the table. The on/off switch of the saw is locked in the on position.
