It's the hassle-free way to cut plywood. And it has features that will save you time and money.
An easy way to break down sheets of plywood is on a panel saw. The trouble is, these saws can cost a thousand dollars or more. But besides cost, most panel saws take up a lot of wall space. That's because the saw carriage is fixed, so you need ample room to load and unload the panel. And for ripping, that means you'll need a full 8' on both the "infeed" and "outfeed" side of the saw.
But the panel saw you see here solves both of these problems. First of all, you'll save a lot of money by building the saw yourself. (Ours cost less than S350, without the circular saw.)
And second, once the sheet of plywood is in place, it never moves. Instead, a sliding carriage guides the circular saw so you can make both rip and crosscuts accurately.
Rip Cuts. When ripping sheet goods, the saw slides along the top rail for smooth, easy cuts.
