Why not? You can make a dedicated jig for the job, with a higher fence for support, and clamp the vertical board to the fence. It would be a pain, but I think it could be done.cloudancer said:I can't quite imagine running 10'x36" plywood over my table saw on edge8-O.
Well the model is 40", the full thing is 10' or 120" ... I've actually been thinking about the problem for a while now and today I think I struck on an idea using a router and straight bit. Hard to explain but I'll try to draw it up this weekend.insomniac said:<I'm assuming you meant 10", not 10' >
Esentially that's what I was thinking about doing. Today it dawned on me that I could build a jig and run a router with a straight bit in it to do the cuts. Effectivly the jig would form a "table" on top of the board to run the router on.DaveO said:Cloudancer, I've used very careful layout and a Bosch jigsaw to do nice box joints on larger pieces. You might consider that. Or a jig that would hold your ply vertical, and another to keep the circ saw square and try making shallow kerf cuts. Dave
I will but its a big project of which the tank is only part. I'm hoping to get the scale model going in the next month or so...insomniac said:Hey, I don't care where you post it... I just want to see what a 10' long tank looks like!!! Please keep us posted!
