    It couldn't be because a table saw is any safer.

    Maybe, it was because you wanted a bigger table.

    Well I must admit that in years past I have done something very similar, and felt much safer on small stock than I did using the circular saw normally. If you notice he has made the equivalent of a zero clearance insert which on a circular saw is one of the bigger hazards when working with small stock. Now my usage didn't include a vise as the support but I have done that with a portable belt sander.

    Well, a sanded finger is always better that no finger at all My portable belt sander came with a suport to hold it vertical or horizontal on a bench and I've used it quite a lot of times without problem.

    I'm not sure. It looks like the guy is a model builder of some sort, and the saw is one of those battery operated C-saws.

    Still, kind of scary. I love that site. Always some 'creative' type pictures on it...

    For model work I think I'd want a blade with a lot more teeth per inch.

    To me, the most dangerous thing about his setup is the lack of a fence or miter gauge. Even on a little battery-powered tablesaw, I'd think freehand cutting could be a risky thing.

    Ok, the Griz G0691 is off the list. But I'm going to wait for their model with the riving knife!!!
    I've seen several pictures over the years of similar setups, but most of them looked a lot more scarey than that one! Jim.
