Hi

Save some time and space and look at Eurekazone's Track Saw guide, it replaces panel saw, jointer and a lot of table saw uses at a much lower cost and space.

I looked in to this about a year ago, if you search this site I know there is a couple of threads on panel saws. To get accuracy there isn't really a cheap way to do it. I've looked into linear bearings and slides and they are pretty expensive. I still would like to built one someday but it got pushed to the back of the list for the time being. It can be done and isn't that hard but the bearings are pretty expensive and from what I've seen if you try and do it cheaply the accuracy is threw out the window-so you might as well just go with a circular saw and guide.

One option that I have looked into and will probably buy before I end up making my panel saw is a festool track saw. http://www.toolking.com/festool-ts-5...t-circular-saw
I think it would be more versital in most situations than a panel saw. It's 500 bucks but by the time you figure bearings and slides and all other materials it would be really close to that anyway.

Just some things to think about and hope this helps

Thanks for your help
