I personally can’t handle 1/2” or larger sheets on my TS…not the least of my issues is the “off” switch is 6’ away…but I can’t justify a panel cutter either.

do you have the room for a permanent 4×8 table (I did and I use it all the time for layout, assembly, layout, “junk”)? If so then use that for big panel breakdowns (a minimum of 4 1” stickers” to support the cuts with a circ saw set to not cut into the table top). I have short arms and can’t complete a cut across a 4” span so I shut it down and finish from the back side in a “pull operation”.

remember “good side” down for circ saw cuts. and as noted above, cut a bit wide and get your finished dimensions once the panels are managable.
