rich,
that’s why i was wondering about why a 12” saw before. you can easily build a table to accept a circ. saw. i also did that once. I was able to use the tilt and height adjustment features of the circ. saw on my table. on some cuts, i would take the saw out and use it.

the only issue with this idea, you’re not going to get a 12” capacity out of a circ saw.

designing and building your own wouldn’t be that hard though. I would mount the table so it can be raised and lowered. i would mount the motor independent and adjust it for the angle adjustments. piece of cake.

I saw on an earlier post a tablesaw where the table top tilted. To me, that’s an accident waiting to happen. I don’t even like tilting my bandsaw table (but I do sometimes). but a tablesaw top tilted makes controling the wood harder and more dangerous.
