The plan is to convert this mini circular saw into a mini table saw for fret slot cutting. Unsure how to add the other pics in series, so I will load them in order in the comments below. ThX for looking. RKIII

It only works well on soft woods. Harder woods it's wanting to bog down. But I think I need to had some larger washers to stabilize the blade. I would use a newer mini saw that has decent power and won't bog down. I'll probably redo this and give an update. But 2015 was rough for me with family issues so I didn't get much building done. Onward 2016 !!! Hehe

Awesome Idea!! I have been brainstorming myself to reengineer tools to make things work better.

Sorry the pics ended up in the wrong order with first being last. Should have planned it better. But looking at them you;ll get the idea of how it goes.

Test run of a couple of slots to check depth. Looks good to me. I think this will work nicely. In all, this build will allow me to use the router table to make the necks in multiples, then switch over to allow multiple fretboards to be cut as needed. The saw is a 18V cordless HF 5.5" circular saw I got from my dad. But never really used it. My shop is too small for the amp load for a regular table saw, and this was the best alternative for now I can think of. At some point will modify the power souce for the saw. ThX for looking.

Mini saw and crosscut sled all in one. I used an aggressive tooth 4" blade to cut the running grove. The will use that to line up with the .023 blade.

For now battery back sits at bottom, but will make a small fitted shelf for it to sit on and easier access.

Now inserted, the red mark to the right is where the battery was hitting the table, would've needed to remove 1/24" 3/4" of material there is I had not chopped the saws handles off. This was better way to go.
