I keep thinking of using centripetal force developed by the motor that is transferred to the blade/wheel. What about adding a mass (TBD) to the axis of the motor that would then “store” x-amount of centripetal force, that could then be used to pull/push the blade below the table? The only restriction that I see at the moment would be the need to ‘slow start’ the motor so as to NOT overload and blow circuits, but once running, this centripetal force would actually work FOR the saw when cutting thick lumber and the like…

Still thinking… carry on…
