Crosscutting a beveled edge into tabletop with a track saw.The design of these saws make bringing the tool to the work easy, less dangerous and accurate.Track saws are a favorite among on-site installers and carpenters, for breaking down sheet goods, trimming floors and other operations common on the job.
Their portability and accuracy make them a godsend for contractors.Many woodworkers have a circular saw in their shop and use it for crosscutting, kerfing out large joinery or cuts where the tool needs to be brought to the work.
The addition of a track (made at home or with aftermarket accessories like this) makes the circular saw even more valuable in the shop, providing long, straight and accurate cuts.For most, though, the track saw is seen as a tool outside of furniture making, but my experiences have shown me otherwise.
I bought a Festool TS-75 years ago when I was working for Joel at Tools for Working Wood, and the saw makes its way into a ton of my projects.The Festool track saw is the tool I've worked with most, but there are many other brands to try and test out, each of which has its pros and cons.
