I recently worked on a video series for Festool in which I covered examples of how you might use a Festool track saw in a shop or on the jobsite. I typically work out of a small garage-based shop, and yet I’m able to process sheet goods in a one-person operation with limited space—something that wouldn’t be nearly as easy with a table saw.

In this first video, I’ll walk you through using a track saw to break down plywood, MDF, and other sheet goods. Using a track saw produces superior cut quality with no splintering. It also prevents you from having to lift and run large sheets through a table saw, which can be awkward and presents safety concerns. With a track saw, multiple sheets can be cut simultaneously, speeding the entire process. A track saw is a very versatile tool and can be used for many applications beyond processing sheet goods.
