Topic tags/keywords: utube saw puzzling

Not even how the fence stays up but even just as puzzling is the slanted (what looks like an) out feed table on the saw.

This is on utube and to save you having to watch the whole thing the part I am talking about is from 3:43 to 3:55

Comments are very welcome as I don’t see how this saw is marketable. I will not be doing the vacuum build though, far too much work for me. :) larry

????. Just looks like a combo machine to me. Not sure what you are seeing.

As far as I can tell, that’s a European style sliding table saw.

It’s a T track, the slide on the fence is physically held in place.

Exactly, something like this maybe not exact model but you get the idea. And price…...

That’s Marius Hornberger. He has lots of really cool DIY projects on his channel. He also did a couple videos on his upgrade decisions.

old saw and first attempt at a new one (also a sliding table unit):
keeper saw:

These types are pretty common, but usually in larger production shops. His model is pretty small as far as these go. Here’s a big one in Timothy Wilmot’s shop. You can get big cantilever arms that glide and pivot to support big sheets all the way through a cut.
you can see it in action here:

Sliding table saw and a couple Matthias Wandel based machines.

WOW Guys, that stuff is so far out of my world I didn’t even know there were such things.

I guess I’ll just go back to my single car crammed up shop and try to forget about all the things I’ll never have and probably never need. But boy would that be NICE to have! larry
