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. In the following video, I demonstrate a quick, easy and safe method of ripping plywood sheets down into panels or strips. This technique is well-suited for producing cabinetry components.
A Note from the Publisher:

I’m using the Festool parallel guide system in this video. These guides are designed to extend the track saw’s capability. They are one of the main reasons this technique is so efficient. Plus, each panel I rip is exactly the same size.
