If you've ever cut and installed laminate flooring before, then you know that it creates a dusty mess. Cutting outside is time consuming to go back and forth and still makes a mess of the outdoor space. I've come up with a couple jigs that work with a dust extractor and a circular saw that allow for near dustless cuts. Being able to make all the rip cuts, cross-cuts and notches right along side of where the flooring is being installed is a huge time saver.
I've had the Makita SP6000 track saw for 3 years now and it gets used a lot both in the shop and on site. Where it really shines for me is working with sheet goods, which I do a lot of as a cabinet maker. In addition to reviewing the Makita, I will share some of the ways that I use the saw in my work and which accessories that I find helpful.
