Ever see one of those kits where you can take the motor and chassis of a regular car (they use to do this VW Beetles) and put a fiberglass body on it to make it look like a Porsche or Lamborghini? Well this is the table saw version of that.

A woodworker named John Heisz took the guts of an old Makita table saw and used them to build this new cabinet saw. It's not up to the standard of a Unisaw or PowerMatic, but it was probably cheaper and looks like it was fun to build.
