Genius Idea or Beyond Stupid? A Saw Blade Powered Machine



Chances are that I’ll never make a machine that’s powered by the spinning table saw blade, but I thought the idea was interesting enough talk about. The efficiency of the power transfer from the spinning blade and the possibility of overheating the blade are the biggest issues, and not how safe it is.
The mockup I made was just a plywood wheel with a screw as the axle. Very quickly made just to show on video how it would work. The wheel would be bigger and may have a rubber tire on the rim to grip the blade better. It would also be on a proper axle with bearings, as would the idler wheel.
If I do make something that uses this idea, it would be for the novelty of it, and not for a machine that has a practical purpose.
