Swingman showed you his track saw, below is what I have done with mine.
I was commissioned by an airline company to build a display for their
convention displays of their aircraft. The lower airplane is 60" long
and has a 60" wing span. The posts that both are mounted on protrude
through the top and anchor with a large peg, on the bottom end, into an
inner lower shelf.
The trick was to cut the hole exact and at a 15 degree angle through the
top. The fit had to be very close to perfect to prevent wiggle. I use
the TS75 track saw to simply plunge to make the cuts, not totally unlike
the action of a drill press. I locked the saw so that it did not slide
on the track. The track also is your alignment tool, it places the saw
precisely where it needs to be. Anyway I covered the top with a Formica
like material after cutting the hole in the top. I also rough cut all
of the separate pieces of laminate with the track saw before adhering
Oddly the company that built the rest of this commercial display could
not build the one to display the star attractions. Like all of the
other display components this had to be broke down and reassembled 50+
times all over the world.
That was 3 years ago. Six months ago I was invited to the company's
25th anniversary party. It display still looked great. ;~)
