Repetitive Thin Rips
« on: Today at 09:34 PM »
What is your method for dealing with repeating thin rips - as in cutting face frame pieces from a stick of hardwood?

Thanks for any enlightenment....

A table saw...here’s 30 pieces of aromatic cedar ripped to width within a 15 minute time span.

The track saw system is great but it has its limitations.  If that’s the only tool you own it works...if you own other tools there are alternative and sometimes faster methods.

Even though I use the table saw less after I purchased the Festool track saw system, I’d never sell the table saw because the table saw is more efficient in many sawing instances. Match the tool to the chore.
