From the shopnotes plans.

Uploaded some action photos. Worked out nicely, unloaded straight from truck to the saw several days ago. Today did two cross cuts, the cut was a little less than an eight off so for this job all is good. May have to take a hammer and adjust!

With the collapsible stand only needs about 12 inches from a wall, less if you pull the saw off!

If you don’t mind me asking, how much do you have into this panel saw?

BTW, nice job on the panel saw! You may have inspired me to make one…

Thanks, I lost count! My guess is about $225 all total.

I just found a link online to the plans. Thanks for the inspiration. Where did you get the nylon spacers from and is there anything you’d change about the design after using it? I’m thinking about putting rollers at the bottom to make it easier to slide the plywood through.

No problem. It was fun to build, told my wife even if I never cut a sheet of plywood I had fun!

I got all the hardware; nuts, bolts and screws as well as the nylon spacers from Bolt depot dot com. The spacers are part number 13771. The counterweight rollers were from Home Depot part number D-1506 from Prime-Line. Knobs and such are Rockler products.

Good luck and have fun!
