I'm a rookie woodworker exploring the different ww forums. I'm interested in flatwork, mostly built-ins and outdoor furniture. I am doing all my learning on the internet and through books....so I'm a relentless question-asker. I also freelance write for one of the ww magazines.

Thank you so much, everyone. I’m very grateful for the warm welcome. If anyone wants to read all the grisly details about the Hillbilly Track Saw, I did a blog entry about it here.

Not to be over critical but the ideal is to anchor the saw to one rail (stopping sideways movement) while allowing free travel along the cut. Sandwiching the saw can lead to dangerous kick back if the offcut tips into the blade under clamp pressure. Been there (had to change my pants tho).

I hear what you’re saying exelectrician, and I understand. I did not anchor the saw to one rail—although I could have, and could still. But the offcut is not under any clamp pressure. I clamp the track on the good side only, and clamp the 2 parts of the track together. The offcut is not clamped to anything and is free to fall away.
