I got the plans for this panel saw from they were pretty straight forward and easy to follow. The first pic shows the saw loaded with a sheet of osb, the second shows it un loaded and you can see part of the “A” frame I mounted it to. This “A” frame doubles as a sheet goods storage rack, I didn’t want to take up 10 feet of wall space for the saw so I mounted it on the sheet goods rack. The third pic shows the carriage that slides both horizontally and vertically on six ball bearings. The fourth pic shows the spring loaded counter balance that offsets the weight of the saw so it slides up and down with little effort. The last is just another view of the carriage assembly. The first test cut with it was off by less than 1/16” in 8 feet which is good enough to break down full sheets into something more manageable in my opinion. Now to start using it to build new shop cabinets.

I would love to have one of these because it would be quite handy. I wouldn’t be able to put it in my shop because of room but there is a shed that might work next to my shop. It’s a nice saw and I appreciate your posting of it. Nice work.

Awesome stuff! The only thing preventing me to do the same is lack of space in my workshop garage.
