Grizzly T27444 - Mini Track Saw Super Kit
The 20T carbide-tipped blade cuts wood and wood-based material (plywood, MDF, OSB, etc.). The 40T carbide-tipped blade cuts soft metals (aluminum, copper, brass, etc.), melamine panels, and plastics. The abrasive blade/disc cuts steel. The diamond-tipped blade cuts tile, slate, brick, stone, concrete, etc. The 24" rails have a non-slip backing on the underside for secure grip on the workpiece, and the top of the track features a guide rail that fits directly into the grooved saw bottom, allowing the saw to slide smoothly and precisely along the workpiece in a perfectly straight line. Another awesome feature of this saw is its plunge-cutting action, which allows you to easily make window, electrical, or plumbing cut-outs in panels—without being required to lift and hold the guard out of the way, such as with a regular circular saw. Last but not least, this saw is also equipped with a dust-extraction port that connects to a regular shop vacuum to help keep your worksite cleaner.

On sale for $99.99 plus shipping for saw and 2 tracks was worth a shot. But poorly made and doesn't work well upon delivery. Great compact size, but the saw rocks in the track, and doesn't give 90 degree cuts- (see utube videos). There are a couple of things that can be done: 1- purchase new green top strips for extreme left side of track to prevent rocking- ( can also use the longer 55" top plastic strips from full size track saw for the 48" joined tracks of mini track saw; 2- purchase bottom rubber strips from full size track saw to replace smaller joined bottom rubber strips on mini tracks (assume you join 2 of the 24" mini tracks for general use), 3- discover that you can buy additional carbon tipped wood blades off of the parts list ($9.25 each), and not have to pay for a 4 blade pack as described in sales literature.
I keep using it more and more instead of my table saw and my Makita plunge saw.
How come? Iâ€˜ll tell you.
This saw allows me to cut in no prep time, no dust, and no hassle any straight line in any piece of plywood smaller than 24 inches. I just draw all the angles on the plywood; place the track on the line and zip-zip I cut it. The procedure is similar to place a straight edge and mark with a pencil or cut paper with an utility knife.
I also use it to cut PVC barrels and other plastics and the amount of plastic dust that gets captured is amazing. You wonâ€™t see any dust in your shop.
The secret is that the performance is much better than the engineering. It is extremely light and although it rocks when you check it, it actually doesnâ€™t rock when you cut because you are placing downward pressure on the right side of the track. The cuts are very sharp with very little chipping and it is powerful enough for what I use it which is less than one inch of material. I even used it to do dados in ¾ inch plywood.
The only thing that I wish they had was a 60 or 80 inch track. When you joint two 24 inch track it is very hard, and time consuming to actually makes the 100% straight.
I paid $99.95 on sale for the whole kit and I can recommend the value of it.
I have the larger model as well, I like it so much I couldn't pass up the value priced smaller model. I replaced the rubber edge guide with the more ridgid guide that's available as a replacement for the Festool edge guide, it's a little stiffer and cuts way down on the cross cut splintering. Very portable straight edge system excellent for use in tight work spaces.
Great saw and great customer service as well. The saw works as advertised works great for hardwood floors which I do professionally as a hardwood flooring contractor. \r\nThank you Grizzly!
