Best saw for plywood and hardboard panels?
by Manage My Life Last activity date:
I regularly need to cut 1/8 to 1/4 inch plywood and hardboard (Masonite) for fine art panels and would like a saw I can devote to that. I often by sheet goods in 2 x 4 foot sections. Today I tried to use my scroll saw (locked so the blade wouldn't swivel) and even with a good-quality guide rail clamped down, the blade, with a mind of its own, veered off the line and away from the guide rail, even with the base of the saw firmly against the rail. I suspect that the tiny bit of play in the locked scrolling mechanism may be the culprit. I have a VERY heavy circular saw that seems like overkill. I use it for decks and such. Is there something out there I use for these thin panels that will enable accurate, straight-line cuts without using a table saw?

This material would certainly offer challenges. I found some information on a web site that may be helpful. The relevant section is under , "What should I use to cut and mill MDF". This may help while you wait on the expert answer.
