I’ve been doing more work with larger sheet goods, and of course, buying in larger sizes, then breaking them down is a good way to save money — has anyone found any surprisingly useful/affordable tools for this?
Naturally, what I really want is a Festool or Makita Track Saw, but I’d like to apply the 80/20 rule — can one get 80% of the functionality by paying 20% of the price?
Ages ago, Craftsman had a small saw which I’ve always regretted not buying:
but it seems to be available once again under a different brand name:
I’d get the track as well (and would hope it would fit in the cloth case which is now being offered)
The alternative/upgrade would be a battery-powered Makita (I’d probably break down and get the saw/drill combo pack) but I’m not seeing that it specifically works with a track.
Is there some third-party track which folks would recommend? I see that Kreg has one…
