This is priceless... you cannot beat that it will still do any job :thumbsup:
I still love and enjoy using my Old Porter Cable saw Model# 617 that takes a dab of grease on the side :thumbsup:.

You mean I can't patent it as an original invention? I'm devastated. :sad:

I wouldn't want to trim cabinetry that way, but for a couple of 16' deck boards, it works like a champ.

I used to use 2 small c clamps for that a long while ago.
I know someone who uses his fingers for that, just pinches the base plate at the front about 1 1/2" or farther from the blade and slides the side of his index finger along the wood as he cuts. Thats too close for me, I will do 4" or so. Need very thick skin for that.

That's actually what I do most times. But for several 16' rips on nasty knotted PT... :no: :laughing:

I make a line with a pencil by holding the lead against the measured mark of a speed square and run it down quick and then just freehand the cut.

I bought a brand new maloti circular saw at the hd and it didn't come with a rip guide.

This is what caused me to buy a track saw. I always made fun of them and managed to get quite accurate with index finger than one day ran a splinter from knuckle to knuckle.

Now festool is in my life.
