I’ve seen the video’s that basically replace the plate of a regular circular saw with the little bumper/spacers so you can rip a sheet of plywood into strips using the previous cut edge as a guide.
However, I need to rip about 40 sheets of 1/2 ply in 6 inch-ish wide strips. I was going to buy a track saw, either a makita or festool, but I’m staring at it trying to figure out how to do something similar with the track of the saw so i can make sure each strip is the same width…
Anybody seen anything like this? I’m not even sure what to call it.
I can go with a regular saw and replace the bottom plate, but I’d like the better cut of the track saw.
I don’t have the room for a table saw at the present time.
Only thought I have is some kind of pre-cut spacers that sit between the track and the far side of the plywood, and just keep replacing the space with the next smaller one, push the track over, clamp, saw, lather rinse repeat.
Any suggestions appreciated.
