I am a retired physician who always has enjoyed woodworking. I retired to 85 acres, most in hardwoods, and began to make furniture from deadfalls and some harvested trees, hickory, maple, oak, and walnut. In addition, my large family began to request I help them with cabinet makiing; some I could make in my wordworking shop, some site built. Making long straight cuts was problematic; I decided I needed a track saw. The TrueTrack system seemed like a good option, had great reviews, and was a US based business. I bought the 8 ft option and got a battery driven 6 1/2 inch saw with the blade on the left to dedicate as my track saw. Following the instructions, I successfully got the baseplate installed on the saw, although I had to drill from the bottom up through the saw's baseplate to get the screws where I wanted them. I then made a plywood box to store the saw when not in use. While the baseplate is secure to the saw, I am worried that if it gets bumped, and certainly if it gets dropped, the baseplate will break or get out of adjustment. The box is big enough that I can store the track connectors, allen wrench and toggle clamps with the saw, and protect the saw in the back of my truck when I do on-site work.
I have now used the TrueTrac system for building a huge built-in cabinet in a bedroom. I am very happy with the quality of cuts I get, and no longer have to wrestle with long pieces of plywood. I get edges that are better than those I got on a table saw and have no danger of kick-back when cross cutting. My only, very minor complaint, is that the anti-chip strips are so loose in their groves that they move out when the track is moved and may get broken. They do work well in maintaining their position on the plywood while I am cutting, even without the toggle clamps. It is now easy to mark for a cut and position the track for a cut exactly where I want it.
I am DELIGHTED with the quality of this product and am happy to recommend it
