Foot Powered Table Saw, Left Side
The words “Foot Cut” can be found on the bottom of most of my products. This means I have made it using the PEDAL POWERED TABLE SAW, you see in the photograph. I have put a plain background behind it so it will show up the best. When people would see me using it they would ask, “Why are you peddling backwards?” I would tell them, “I’m not, the saw won’t cut if I go backwards, this is forward, for the saw”. I did find I could go at a more even speed going “backwards”, especially when using the scroll saw. Also I don’t have as much upper body movement, which when your cutting, you don’t want.
For every revolution of my feet the blade turns 30 times, so when I peddle at 40 rpm I am getting 1200 rpm’s on the blade.
