Right tool for the job?
Have a laminated disk 9" in diameter 2.5" thick with a 1/4" thick laminate on one face I would like to cut into 8 equal 'pie shaped' parts. I do not want to drill a center hole in it to preserve the pointed ends and am wondering what tool to use, table saw, bandsaw or radial arm saw, I would use the miter saw but it maxes out at 5.25" cuts at 90 deg. Idealy I would like to use a fine tooth blade to provide a smooth finish and minimise finishing the parts, seems like the RAS or table saw would bind due to the thickness of the material if I put in a plywood blade. Band saw seems to be ideal but I would have to travel some distance to use a friends and hate to bother them on a holiday weekend but I have to get this done in time for Christmas.
Suggestions welcome, perhaps some sort of jig or fixture in a octagon shape to guide along a fence?
