    Box Cutting

    Guys, I am having a hard time getting straight cuts on long runs. ANy suggestions? I am using a 10' skilsaw. Its older black and decker. I have a roybi 10" table saw but really dont have any way of making the wood straight. Just looking for some hints from all you professional builders.

    Make sure your fence is aligned correctly to the table saw I had a similiar problem and my fence was mis-aligned just had to align it just a few screws on my ridgid.

    Re: Box Cutting

    i have something dont know if its a fence but it slides on one side and I can lock it down. But how am I suppose to put the huge piece on the table.? I try using all 4 side because normally they are pretty true.

    Re: Box Cutting

    Yeah if your table saw doesn't have a big table it's pretty hard to cut a full sheet of mdf on it. I'll usually use a circular saw to cut the full sheet down than use the table saw

    Re: Box Cutting

    can you recommend a good circular saw? Dewalt Makita? What size do I need a 10"?

    Re: Box Cutting

    ^^^^ thanks I apppreciate it. I have to do a better job. I noticed today I could feel air moving out of some edges on the box. I was sparring on the glue. I guess it does not matter that much because its ported.
