This was an awesome experience from start to finish. Ordered the trutrac online and it was delivered promptly. I ordered it to help with a table I was building for my newly renovated breakfast nook. The TrueTrac was easy to setup with the instructions provided. I used it to cross cut a sheet of Walnut plywood and it worked like a charm. I used it to rip and cross cut some other plywood. This thing works plain and simple and cuts a straight line far better than I ever did! Thanks to the team at TrueTrac. Money well spent (and money saved)!
When I researched this tool I saw some comments about the cost and whether it was worth the investment. No it’s not cheap - but neither is plywood. What I have saved on mis-cuts has more than offset the price. I can now accurately cut sheet goods with confidence. I was a little concerned with the assembly but if you read the instructions AND watch the video AND take your time it’s not difficult. Also adequately supporting the work piece is crucial. I highly recommend cutting with a sacrificial sheet underneath.
Very handy tool. I don’t know how I lived/ worked without it.
Have been intrigued by track saws for a long time, but was always put off by the high price of systems like the Festool.
Building a new shop, and will be covering the walls with OSB, so decided to give it a go.
Purchased the 8' track kit, carry bag and toggle clamps. Installation of the saw base was very straightforward. Note: I had purchased a new cordless Dewalt saw when I ordered the track kit, but realized the smaller saw base would be a lot of trouble to get properly mounted (reinforcing pieces on magnesium saw base are too tightly spaced) when it came time to install it. Switched to a more traditional corded Dewalt saw with a flat aluminum base (highly recommended). Alignment jig was very helpful.
The printed manual is excellent ... very clear text and wonderful COLOR pictures. This, plus one of the helpful YouTube videos, made trimming the anti-chip strips simple.
The carry bag is very high quality ... highly recommended!
My first use was crosscutting OSB helping my son ... worked perfectly. Had not used a track saw before ... still amazed at how "grippy" the anti-chip strips are. Have not had an occasion to rip panels, but that will be coming up in the next couple of weeks. Purchased the toggle clamps figuring they would be helpful.
Can't believe how much time I saved over marking, calculating the saw base to blade offset, and clamping a straight edge. Also, the track saw makes it darn near impossible to screw up ... have clamped the straight edge on the wrong side more times than I would like to admit!
If you do any amount of breaking down panels, this is a no brainer.
It took me about an hour to set it up. I drilled the plate mounting holes from the bottom ,plate, side, seemed easier to me. I countersunk the mounting screws in the plate. I checked the plate to blade with the included jig and a small flashlight after every drill and screw. I broke down a full sheet of plywood and checked every cut with a Starrett tape measure and a framing square and everyone was perfect. I don't do much sheet goods, mostly hardwood, but this thing is excellent at sheet goods. I just lay the sheet on an old piece of 3/8 inch, support the overhang, make one small mark on each side of the sheet, set the track on the sheet on the marks, set the saw on the track and saw. I keep my left hand on the left side of the track just to know if the track shifts, it never does. I set the blade 1/16 lower than the thickness of the sheet. i think what amazes me is you just lay the sheet down and cut it, no fence no miter gauge, just a tape measure and pencil. 8 pieces all told.
