Not being very knowledgeable about table saws, but I doubt that they
are stressed for a "sideways" force. I would imagine that the bearings
and such are designed for high speed spinning, and forces applied at
a right angle to the shaft. Putting a sanding disk on instead of a blade
would cause the forces to be in line with the shaft, and it might just not
work very well.
Then again, I know very little about them - last time I use one was in
wood shop in high school (lets just say that Nixon lived in the White
House), and the real sander was not far away...
