HI
This is my first post on your forum site, I must say that i really enjoy watching your video's. So much so that it has got me interested in making a Portable Workshop. I have though been looking at your Portable Workshop Video and note with interest your choice of Circular Saw. in the Video it is seen to be a Makita Circular Saw, I am though not able to find the same saw by looking on the "interweb" I particularly like your choice of CS as it seems to have a more "ROBUST ANGLE ADJUSTER MECHANISM" Could you please therefore shed some light onto the exact Model of Makita CS that you have used in the making of your Portable Workshop.
Thanks in advance, & please keep up the good work. Regards BOBNBUILD

Hi,

my model is 5903r. If you can't find this model, you can look try other brands. They usually have similar quality and features in similar range of prices.

Hi
Many thanks for the swift reply i'll have to go on the Hunt for one now ! Looking on the Tinterweb i see that this particular CS will fit the 135mm blade which obviously goes for a better height of cut, sounds like the best route.
Thanks once again

Hi,
I'm interested in purchasing a under table saw for the portable table.
Does this Makita module any good?


Thanks, Oren

Hi,

I have purchased the portable workshop plans, and I actually just finished it, but ran into an issue, that I would like to clear with you.
There is an anti-kickback riving knife mounted on the 5903R, which in turn cannot protrude through the table top.
I suppose I will have to cut it further back from above, by taking off the saw and aligning it to a guide, then cutting a little more backwards.
Just for clarification I have not created a full opening yet below the insert.

But what will happen to the inserts? What is the best practice to cut the blade opening, so that the knife can come out?

Hi Levente,
as you can see in this article, I bought the circular saw used and did not include the riving knife, therefore I can not make the design adapted to the riving knife.
You have two options, you can make the lid hole bigger, or you can reform the riving knife just like I did.
Let me know if you still have problems.
It would also be nice if you can upload some photos of your portable workshop in this forum.

Yeah, I wanted to, but didn't find a way to upload the photos.
