Homemade Panel Saw From Pipes And Castors — Every Workshop Should Have One!

Panel saws are great for cutting up big 8 x 4 sheets of plywood or chipboard or mdf or whatever. They cost thousands to buy though, so I made this one a few years ago now and it cost maybe 40 euros plus the skil saw that I can still use separately if I want to. It is brilliant! I use it often and it has to be one of the most useful tools I have. The long spring is just to keep the electric flex out of the way.

If you think this might be useful to others please like and share. Thank you!

    Thanks, Mark. No plans – I just went with what I had. I suggest you find some pipe that won’t bend, and go from there.. Good luck.
