I had a need to cut four 16" circles out of plywood today and used it as an
opportunity to try this on a table saw. Worked slick. Made a less elaborate
base for the pivot point as it's not something I would do frequently. The
principle is what I wanted to explore.
Be sure to wear safety glasses if you try it. Obviously since I can still
see to type this I wore mine :-) Lot's of small pieces can and did kick out
from the outside of the blade and table top
What's that? Something on the Internet that's true?!!!

Hey, no whining. OK, I know it sucks ass at first, but fifteen-twenty years
from now you'll wonder why you ever thought you needed it. And don't forget
that now you have an awesome nose-picking gag to freak out little kids
everywhere...personally I get the best squicks with the finger-in-the-eye
srsly though, sympathies and best wishes...welcome to the club....

But seriously I did use this method yesterday and the video saved me some
time figuring out a jig. I already had a sliding miter jig so all I needed
to do was add a 1/4" machine screw and drill a hole in each piece to be cut.
They needed a hole anyway. These were 16 1/4" circles and I would not use
this method for anything much smaller than that. At least not without
making/installing some guards.
