I like the feather board setups. It kind of reminds me of this. Probably a little more money though.
Whatever happened to that tool? It was pushed hard when It came out and now nothing. Seemed like a good idea but I think track saws killed it.

As far as I know it's still available. I got one at Lowes a number of years ago for $ 100. It's actually a decent flooring saw. Rips and crosscuts, right in the room with you.

The skil reminds me of the delta sawbuck, but obviously smaller and more portable, but the concept is the same.
Well I had the Delta Sawbuck as well. It was the precurser to the sliding miter saws. The difference with that Skil is that you lock the saw in place, rotate the fence, and you can rip with it. The Skil really is only of use for flooring, maybe siding. It has a very limited depth of cut.

Sorry but someone at Triton is trying too hard there.

Did you see how long it took to switch from radial arm saw to table saw? What if you needed to cross cut something and then rip it?

Be better off with a dewalt 745 and using the miter gauge to help you cross cut
