I saw the wood whisper show a great idea on making a circular saw guide which means knowing where your saw will cut, so this really is a no-brainer so I went and got some chip board and in b & q the wood scraps by the cutting area was some 6mm x 150mm x 2.4M mdf with the straight edge still crisp, this was a bargain 10p. So when I got home I put it all together as per Marc’s instruction, I glued and screwed the pieces together and then cut the chip board to get the cut line. Now I have the jig and I know where the cut will be.

Great tip Paul.

I’ve made several versions of these over the years and keep a 2ft., 4ft., and 8ft. guides in the shop for breaking down sheet goods. They are real handy and don’t take up a lot of space.

SIDE NOTE; My 2ft. and 4ft. guides are set up for my favorite hand held router with a 1/2” straight bit for dadoes, grooves and rabbets on the opposite side of the saw guide for case goods work.

Work Safely and have fun. – Len

Yep they work great and cost just a Tad Less than the Festool Track Saw System. :)

Have your say...
