DIY Track Saw

I took an old circular saw and turned it into a nice track saw with a bit of aluminum and some plywood.

If I ever remake the track, I'll cut the slot only as deep as the thickness of the aluminum bar, which should eliminate the wobble I had to correct for in the end.

The pink stuff underneath the plywood is insulation foam, available at any big box hardware store. It makes it a lot easier to cut sheet goods, eliminating the need to hang cutoffs over the end of the workbench.
