I'm sure most have seen my TT build in the Plywood cutting tutorial thread so I won't bore anyone with step by step pics. This is one of two mirrored image TT that I'm building for hugeroost. This is my second (and third) build that I've done since I bought my track saw. The thing is worth it's weight in gold. It's a tremendous time saver and really makes you a better builder. I can't recommend it enough.IMG_0434.jpg

Thanks Joe. The saw is so much faster and more accurate than guides.

nice looking setup, so I assume you have all set up on a bench like in the pics.............

I always wanted a panel saw.............this kind of resembles one only it lays horizontal

I have been using claps and guides for years, but this is the cat's meow, thanks. Never knew this existed. You don't see this at Home Depot.

That looks more useful to me than a table saw.

I got mine at "Woodworkers Paradise". It's a local store. I could have gone the internet route but wanted to support a local business. They also took the time to go over all the features with me. That was a big plus.

It's much better than a table saw at ripping full sheets. On this build, I knew all my interior panels would be 18". I clamped 3 sheets of 1/2" Baltic birch together and ripped them 3 at a time. 3 cuts gave me 9 strips of 18" panels to slice up into interior pieces. My garage electrical isn't very stout though. I kept popping breakers until I learned enough patience to go slow.

I never said I was doing them for free :P

We worked out a trade that was mutually beneficial to both of us.

No bench. I work off of 2x4's on the ground.

I have a Delta contractors table saw that I've used only a few times. I think it's time I sell it and spring for one of these.

And I have an urge for a table saw. They both have their uses also but ripping full sheets of paneling is best left to the track saw.

Without a doubt, I agree.....
