I have had my track saw since Christmas but just now putting it to use. I will have to say I really like this saw. I did take off the anti-kickback device because I want to pull the saw back on the track. I am sawing 5'x5' baltic birch ply. I am using the blade that came with the saw and doing a scoring cut first. As long as I keep the ply on a one-inch foam insulation I have no tear out on the bottom and doing the scoring cut I have no tear out on the top. The first picture is the top but isn't very good. The second picture is the bottom. I am really liking this saw.
