Frequently Asked Questions in Atlanta Georgia

A vertical panel saw, unlike a horizontal panel saw, allows for sheet materials, such as plywood or OSB to be cut vertically, taking up much less floor space. On a table saw, or with a track circular saw, you need a lot more horizontal space to make similar cuts. The vertical panel saw saves on shop space. In the case of breaking down large sheets of plywood, a vertical panel saw can be placed near a wall. A horizontal panel saw really needs to be placed in the middle of a space. Consider breaking down a full sheet of plywood; given how plywood is fed through a table saw, you would need twice the length, at the least. Also, it is much easier for one person to load a vertical panel saw by themselves, than onto a horizontal panel saw. The final thing is safety. Vertical saws have the saw blade guarded behind the carriage making workplace injuries by the blade practically impossible. Horizontal saws may have a guard that pivots out of the way when cutting but still allows for a finger or hand to be cut by the saw blade.

There are no other adjustments for the compact models, but the full-size models have a similar arrangement to the Accu-Square, only it is vertical and called the Accu-Fence system. The left roller fence is permanently fixed to the frame. The centers of both fences use square holes and carriage bolts are used to attach the fences to the frame mounting plate. The outside of the right roller fence has an adjustment up or down with the Accu-Fence using the same 1/32" increments of the Accu-Square. This alignment is done at the factory with a specially made 10-foot-long straight edge and should not be adjusted without first consulting a Saw Trax representative. Learn More

The Accu-Square works something like a slide rule using the Vernier principle. There is a series of 9 holes centered on the guide tube support bracket spaced 5/32" apart and there is a series of 9 holes on the frame mounting plate space 4/32" apart (1/8"). When the guide tube bracket is mounted to the frame mounting plate, only one hole will line up in the front and back and the adjacent holes will show the hole getting smaller as you move away from the front and back holes that line up. Once aligned at the factory, a set screw is inserted into the holes that line up preventing the guide tube bracket from shifting in relationship to the frame.
