Some time ago I asked for ideas on cutting dowel plugs for a wooden floor
with a chop saw. They had been flying off. Oddly enough (unusual in this
group) I got no replies.
I solved the problem by using two sheets of rubberized matting, the stuff
you use on kitchen counters. I draped it on the bed on either side of the
blade, making a sort of tent. It has enough surface friction to sit in
place. Instead of flying off in all directions, the cut dowels are trapped
by the rubber. I cut about 10 at a time.
Just like slicing salami.
