Track-guided saws are made by several manufacturers, and all use a specialized, hand-held circular saw that slides precisely along a metal track. You put the track on your wood, the saw on the track, then slide your saw to make the cut. It sounds simple enough, and it is. Deceptively simple. But beneath this concept are a whole range of details that allow track-guided saws to deliver accuracy and perfectly smooth cuts, even on doors and chip-prone sheet materials like plywood, particleboard and melamine.
