    I just wish I had room for one. Luckily, our supplier will cut substrates for us.

    You'd be surprised where you can cram a panel saw. Mine is a smaller version safety speed cut. Takes up very little space. Can wheel it right out the door and make a real mess if necessary. HAd it for about 13 years now, on it's second blade. Would probably still be on the first if not for employee abuse.

    I think I posted up this before but cutting a little window in the blade cover made lining up cut marks on our safety speed saw real easy.

    I'm happy for you.
    But if I had one I'd certainly be an amputee.
    Love....Jill

    I wish I had the wall space for one, as well... but I have stared reading a handyman how to book called Shop Notes, and I got hold of some back issues, and they show how to build a couple of different styles of panel saws.

    The one that I was goign to originally build, instead of sliding the material thru the stationary saw, the material is stationary, and the panel saw moves horizontally (it is in issue #88)...

    But the one that I have decided to build instead of a sliding track system, it has grooves in each side as well as top and bottom, and there is a guide rail that the saw moves across. It is built from 1" x 4"s in a grid pattern to support the material, and it folds flat against the wall.
