    What a joke.



  2. Michael R on December 10, 2022 at 12:36 am

    Great video.



  3. James McGuire on December 10, 2022 at 12:36 am

    Simple Idea till I build my real one.just thinking out loud,those cheap china beginner tablesaws you seen onCL and yard sales for 25 bucks,you could make a dedicated sander out of that using your Idea!

    Interesting innovation and imagination



  5. Tyrone Frielinghaus on December 10, 2022 at 12:40 am

    Also, didn’t know how to make a circle with a table saw : two ideas in one video



  6. Trophy Tines Taxidermy on December 10, 2022 at 12:42 am

    Great idea but you may want to exercise more safety while doing how to videos. We dont need newcombers taking their fingers off. You came close to doing it at least twice.



  7. michael cassetta on December 10, 2022 at 12:44 am

    great ideas! Thanks!

    You just saved me a $100. I was ready to buy one of these.

    because of high speed wood doesn’t resist , if breaks or take apart its danger fatal.



  10. Mike M. on December 10, 2022 at 12:45 am

    Thank you! We have to make the best out of what we have to work with and any time you can make two tools out of one it’s a Big Win! Well Done!

    You just blew my mind



  12. Eric Neering on December 10, 2022 at 12:47 am

    There’s another way to do this take an old dull blade put it on your grinder and grind all the teeth off make it smooth that’s what I did and then I stuck the sandpaper to it



  13. dave on December 10, 2022 at 12:47 am

    Sid, along with all the help you have shown, I have a question as I saw your table saw. Mine is old, 1950’s craftsman. I cant  turn the tilt to 45 degrees. It looks like we have the same era saw. Do I need to take it off the stand and flip it upside down to clear it or is there another way? I hope you say yes lol Thank you Dave



  14. Carl Gradolph on December 10, 2022 at 12:50 am

    Sid: I found this video recently. I have an old table saw whose blade lift/tilt mechanism has a broken handle (Chinese plastic) but whose motor still runs strong. Thanks to you it’s going to take on a new life. For those people that want a disc sander but don’t want to spend a lot of money, I recommend looking for used table saws on Craigslist or at yard sales; nowadays they’re practically giving them away.



  15. t t on December 10, 2022 at 12:51 am

    Like how you cut a circle on a table saw. Very neat trick!!!!



  16. James Richardson on December 10, 2022 at 12:51 am

    👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍



  17. Tuan Bui on December 10, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Turning the sled into a quick little circle cutting jig was freaking brilliant. Lol. Hv seen all kinds of great ideas with folks making circular cuts with every tool imaginable, but this was one I have not seen yet. Nicely done!!



  18. DIY Gene on December 10, 2022 at 12:52 am

    Great information and idea!



  19. Edvaldo Francisco da Silva Francisco on December 10, 2022 at 12:53 am

    Muito bem gostei 👍



  20. Paul Jackson on December 10, 2022 at 12:53 am

    What a great idea!

    Thank you for sharing 👍



  22. Kevin O'Neill on December 10, 2022 at 12:57 am

    All good 👍 nice to see your not too technical. Even I could follow along so you get a 👍Just from me to you. Something you all ready know. Put your ear and eye protection on 😉

    thank you SID that was great…. keep them comin!!



  26. Makeshift Frank on December 10, 2022 at 1:00 am

    Excellent idea. Thanks for the video.



  27. berthosquire on December 10, 2022 at 1:00 am

    Useful video. Clear and well presented. Thank you.



  28. Leon Lessard on December 10, 2022 at 1:01 am

    A piece of half inch solid surface works good and will not have to spray glue disc on it , eventually the paper will give way therefore the solid surface can be cleaned real good and apply a new disc.



  29. Theo FarmManager on December 10, 2022 at 1:01 am

    Very interesting. I don’t know if you or other viewers have seen Mike Farrington’s channel (which I highly recommend). He has developed an aluminium disc and it’s primary use is for the final sanding of boards that you have cut. So, he doesn’t use it as you do (as a conventional disc sander) but runs the boards through using the fence and his aluminium disc.

    One interesting point is that Mike found through his development that a flat disc doesn’t work well for his application. So, his disc is tapered 2 degrees. By using the table saw tilt, you adjust the tapered disc to 90 degrees or whatever you want but the taper front and back stops any binding or burning. His system works very well. I would guess you could use his disc as a disc sander although I haven’t tried that.

    It might be worth see whether, if you were able to turn a 2 degree taper on your wooden disc, whether you could achieve something near to what Mike aspires to ?

    Brilliant! I’m subscribing.



  31. Dave Taylor on December 10, 2022 at 1:02 am

    I did this with my very first 100 dollar table saw, it’s now my permanent sander. I put a different grade sand paper on the other side of sanding disk.



  32. Tyrone Frielinghaus on December 10, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Great ideaQ just what I was looking for. Thank You



  33. dave on December 10, 2022 at 1:06 am

    Sid, really like your vids as they are very helpful,  this has to be a great site for us who don’t want to spend a mint on jigs and didn’t know how about doing it differently…now we do, thanks Sid



  34. Abdilwahid عبد الواحد on December 10, 2022 at 1:07 am

    Great work sir,but how about when changing the sand paper?Glueing and taking off every time or how?thanks.



  35. Spaceman. on December 10, 2022 at 1:11 am

    cool idea, but you also might want to make the sandpaper easily replacable. ie: strong velcro. i am far too familiar with trying to get blunt sand paper off of wood! spoiler: it takes forever and afterwards you will never have a flat wheel to mount more sandpaper to! unless you want to keep making new wood disks… seems pointless to me…..sandpaper wont last forever.



  36. Md Robnson on December 10, 2022 at 1:11 am

    So much easier than I was thinking.

    Just replaced my old table saw with a new one and was wondering if I could turn the old one into a disc sander.

    Space isn’t an issue
    My shop is two tables beneath a hackberry tree and a storage shed for the tools. LOL

    Was gonna try this with the new one but I can hardly get the blade on, this would be impossible until I learn what I’m doing anyway. LOL

    Thanks for the video!!!
    New subscribe from me!!!!



  37. Peter Labat on December 10, 2022 at 1:12 am

    amazing



  38. Flash Gordon on December 10, 2022 at 1:13 am

    I think I’ll do this to my radial arm saw with the carriage locked fully extended. The motor even tilts and pivots. Just have to come up with a movable sanding base.



  39. Bull City Woodworks on December 10, 2022 at 1:14 am

    Nice, I’ll have to give it a spin!



  40. Joe Vannier on December 10, 2022 at 1:15 am

    Excellent. Worked perfect. A low cost solution for right angle sanding.



  41. Ceci on December 10, 2022 at 1:15 am

    How about being a little more enthusiastic in your videos, even smile from time to time??… This was soooooooo slow and boring to look at, the idea is great, but you really need to work on your "in front of camera" personality.



  42. FrankieOnBeastMode on December 10, 2022 at 1:16 am

    looks dangerous. DO you think that can break?



  43. Kevin LaRose on December 10, 2022 at 1:16 am

    I would suggest making a near zero clearance insert for it just to be on the safe side. Otherwise, very nice video!



  44. herbsu43 on December 10, 2022 at 1:17 am

    Have you had to change paper yet? How easy/hard to do?



  45. Stroys on December 10, 2022 at 1:19 am

    Good video, you are very skilled, but please work safely – fingers don’t grow back.



  46. j b on December 10, 2022 at 1:21 am

    great idea! maybe even more versatile than a store-bought disc sander with 2 sides having different grits.
    you could also make a simple zero-clearance plate by just cutting a notch in the middle of a board. the notch length would be about the same as the disc diameter. just lay it over and clamp it down and use it on both sides.



  47. Ted Haubrich on December 10, 2022 at 1:25 am

    I’m tempted to try this. I’d like a disc sander, but don’t have money or room for one. My concern is whether the bearings on the table saw will hold up to the sideways pressure.



  48. Nash Frogman on December 10, 2022 at 1:28 am

    I have been subscribed to your channel for a while and have enjoyed the tips. I have this one portable table saw, fence handle won’t tighten anymore but the rest works great, for being an older table saw. I hung onto it, hoping I could do something useful with it, and after seeing this vid, now I know what. Thanks for the tip Sid! Now I have a new and better tool.



  49. Wayne K on December 10, 2022 at 1:30 am

    Nicely done!



  50. Thomas Doherty on December 10, 2022 at 1:30 am

    I’ve always thought of a jig for the fence that houses a thrust bearing or even multiple bearings to prevent the disc from being tilted and damaging the shaft of the table saw
