The lightweight bench top saws aren’t much more than a gussied up circular saw mounted in a table. They have some of the same issues as the setup you are proposing, Gepatino—marginal power, very noisy, dubious accuracy, and poor durability (universal motors are prone to burning out; they don’t thrive on overloading). But I myself have considered what you are contemplating. My thought was to use it as a job-site saw.
