Your are right, sIKE this does look like a nice tool that a lot of us could use to handle full sized sheet goods.

I remember reading about how to make one of these in an old “Shop Notes” magazine. I don’t rmember if they quoted a price for the project.

I have that issue also, i estimated the cost of materials and parts at about $300 and then the time and effort.

Would a track saw and an A frame do the same job? Of course, if you don’t have the track saw, it would probably run about the same price.

I think I’ve seen this or a similar one used at Home Depot for custom cut pieces of plywood. If you have a HD near you take a look, it’s usually in the back area of the store.

I have used one of these and it works very well. It sure beats trying to cut a full sized sheet of OSB on my table saw. I believe the company that makes this is Safety Speed Cut. They market this unit to the home hobbyist but manufacture a full line of panel saws and other woodworking equipment. The price seems very reasonable at $799.

I have that issue of Shop notes in PDF format, as long as its not in violation of any type of copyright laws, I have no clue about legalities with these things, I will gladly send you the excerpt of how to build a panel saw.

Let me know if you want it :)
