Hi, I cut lots of acrylic. Sheets are often too big for a table saw. Sheets
are up to 50" wide and 100" long. I need the saw to be able to handle the
50" wide cuts ( I don't cut down the 100" legnth enough to worry about). It
needs to be square within 1/16" accross the 50" cut. I plan to purchase the
costly blade for acrylic (alternate chip), I just don't know about panel
saws that much. It needs to keep the sheet from vibrating causing chips.
What is the recommendation for this?
Thank you much, bg
call the folks at Safety Speed Cut...they are experts in the
field...they make a number of models in all price ranges and they
should be able to meet your needs.....good luck

I worked in a glass shop that also sold acrylic and polycarbonate. We
always used Milwaukee's standard panel saw with a (?) blade and always
had very clean, accurate cuts with almost no breakage, melting or any
other problems. It will cut any length, but I'm not sure if it can
handle 50" high sheets. There are others on the market that can handle
I use a Milwaukee panel saw to cut primarily 1/4" plywood and mdf.
Have used it a couple of times to cut acrylic. Makes cross cutting and
ripping large sheet goods a breeze. Milwaukee (and I'm sure other
manufacturers) sell an optional spring loaded hold-down - go for that,
and definitely invest in a good blade. I'm sure you'll love it.
