Can angle grinder be used as motor for scoring blade? What I have found so far the rotation speed should be pretty similar and regular scoring blade can be probably also fitted on the grinder.

  • I'm not sure what info you found but angle grinders as far as I know will usually have a much higher rotational speed than a typical table saw, possibly three times higher. – Graphus Feb 14 '17 at 17:22
  • Scoring blade at 8000rpm vs. Angle grinder at 8000rpm. Where is the difference. Im talking about scoring blade not main blade – Zveratko Feb 14 '17 at 17:31
  • 8,000 RPM would be very high for a table saw, typical speeds are 4,000 and lower. By comparison the speeds quoted for angle grinders (in Europe at least) are often in excess of 10,000 RPM. – Graphus Feb 14 '17 at 22:50

    I know it used to be fairly common to homebrew table saws before safer commercially made saws were widely available at reasonable prices -- but given that a table saw is potentially one of the most dangerous tools in the shop, I really have to question the wisdom of attempting this at all, never mind trying to add something that needs fairly precise alignment. – keshlam Feb 15 '17 at 4:20
  • Given fairly steady home made saw(used for couple years), which I want only to enhance with scoring ability for laminated boards. The scoring blade is dived only milimeters or so, which diminishes the need for ulimately precise alignment(It actualy only breaks the lamination layer) – Zveratko Feb 15 '17 at 8:19
