Universal Circular SAw guide system

Easily convert any standard circular saw into a legitimate track guided saw using our system and make all your cuts laser straight and splinter free!

Cut Straight Lines
Better Than Pros

As much as we'd like to say, "If you can draw it, you can make it," that's rarely the case for most of us.

That's where the TrueTrac Pro-Series Track Saw System comes into play.

If you can make two marks and line the track up to those marks, you're guaranteed a perfectly straight cut.

Simple as that!


“I broke down a full sheet of plywood and checked every cut with a Starrett tape measure and a framing square and every one was perfect...”

Sets Up Fast
Makes Smooth, Accurate Cuts even faster

Loved by professional woodworkers, handymen, contractors, sign-makers, DIYers and hobbyists alike. The TrueTrac Pro-Series lets you use your circular saw to make perfectly straight cuts.

Whether you’re cutting straight or at 45 degrees, cut through wood, PVC. plastic, acrylic, plexiglass or aluminium in a straight line precisely where you place the track.

Not only is it faster to setup without the need for offset measurements like an edge guide, but the cut quality is insanely good.


“I bought the 8' Pro-Series Combo at a Woodworking Show in 2012 when it was a brand new product...I use it to not only cut sheet goods but it works amazingly well at making off square cuts or ripping trim and other boards encountered in remodeling old houses...Thanks for making a great product!"

Say Goodbye
To Expensive Mistakes and Wasted MAterials

With the TrueTrac Track Saw System, your scrap or burn pile will be dramatically reduced when you start making smooth straight cuts every time.

With lumber prices going through the roof, mistakes and poor cuts can get pricey.

Not only that, but you'll waste less time and get more life out of your blades too, saving you even more!


“This is a must have for straight, long, accurate cuts. I couldn’t have completed my project without this. It is actually fun to use vs the frustration not not using the correct tool. Great when a table saw just won’t cut it. Pun intended.”

Safer and Easier To
Cut large pieces of wood solo

Your days of awkward handling of 4' x 8' sheets of 3/4" plywood on a table saw by yourself are over.

With TrueTrac you can safely and effectively rip down 4 x 8's without the back-breaking hassle of trying to feed sheets into a table saw.

Plus, you’ll no longer need your wife (or anyone else) to hold the material steady. No more bickering or paying someone else to stand and watch you work.


“After my wife got tired of me constantly asking her to “catch” a long piece of wood being ripped on the table saw, I finally decided to try a track saw. Wish I had done it years ago.”

Make Perfectly Straight Cuts
On Live Edge or rough Sawn Boards

Your saw rides on top of the track, not next to it.

This allows the track to control the saw and creates a straight line cut regardless of what the edge of the board looks like!


"The track method saved an enormous amount of time...The edge of the cut was as smooth as you would expect coming out of the jointer milling process.

I highly recommend this tool for all wood workers.”

FAQs - Track Saw

If you've got a question about our universal circular saw guide system that isn't answered here or among our videos, please don't hesitate to send us an email or give us a call!

A track saw is ideal for making precise, straight cuts on large sheets of material like plywood, MDF, and doors. The TrueTrac Track Saw System ensures accuracy and clean edges, making it perfect for cabinetry, furniture making, and other woodworking projects.

Yes, you can turn your circular saw into a track saw using the TrueTrac Universal Guide Rail System. This setup improves the accuracy and safety of your cuts, providing the benefits of a track saw without needing to buy a new tool.

A track saw, like the TrueTrac Track Saw System, is often better than a circular saw for precision cuts and ease of use. It offers better control and cleaner edges, especially on large panels. However, a circular saw is more for rough cuts and general use.

Yes - It's massively unlikely you'll find a "normal" 6-1/2, 7-1/4, or 8-1/4 inch bladed circular saw that won't be able to be adapted to our system.

Why? Because the adapter plate is flat on top. The metal base of virtually every circular saw in production is flat on the bottom. Those two surfaces touch, and the only reference we draw from or care about is the body of the blade itself. So, quite literally, the metal base doesn't matter where it ends up, what it looks like, or where the mounting hardware ends on on the metal shoe of your saw.

You will have to drill your own unique/custom holes for mounting your saw to our adapter plate. As for where to drill, anywhere that is flat on our adapter plate is fair game - Do not put mounting hardware on the beveled edges machined into the bottom, as that's the part that rides on the track.

There are four brass inserts in the adapter plate, but those are -not- for mounting your saw - They're for mounting either the Zero Clearance Block or Dust Collection Nozzle to the adapter plate.

Yes, it is best to countersink to keep the heads of the mounting hardware from scratching or catching on the track itself.

We don't use clamps because they're inconsistent. It doesn't matter how particular you are, unless you're using a Haimer-style gauge and measuring down to 0.0005 you're not getting the saw and blade in the same place repeatably.

It doesn't get much more consistent than drilling a hole, bolting two things together, and leaving it alone. Since you trim the Anti-Chip Strips and ZCB to fit your saw and blade combo once it's set up, it's best (and fastest) to just leave everything set up for the next time you'll use the system.

Yes - Leave it mounted! You can still use your saw off of the track free-handed, simply remove the ZCB or DCN and the adapter plate has plenty of surface area for lopping off a 2x4 or whatever your needs are without using the track.

You'll also find it to be more stable since the standard base plate is 7-5/8" x 13", which is larger than the base of most saws. Same concept as the "Big Foot" variations on the worm drive saws. Larger base, more stable cutting table.

Diablo 40 tooth, CMT orange blade 40 tooth

40 teeth give a nice middle ground - Fine enough to have nice plywood cuts, but not so fine that a wet 2x4 gums up the gullets and causes burning. We use those blades for virtually every cut we make, other than on metals or stone.

Brands honestly depend on personal preference. We've found virtually any saw you purchase in the $120 - $150 category from a known brand, preferably with an electric brake and a 15 amp motor, will be an amazing saw for your normal DIY / Homeowner / Moderately heavy types of use.

The $80-$115 range saws are generally for very light, sporadic use here and there but lemons are more common and generally the mounting between the motor/housing of the saw to the metal shoe is a little weak and will flex more noticeably.

If you're looking for a "lifetime" type of saw, it's usually better to spend the extra $50-$60 and get an 8-1/4" saw, simply for the extra 1/2 inch depth of cut you'll gain. Motors will be the same 15 amp, but the housings and metal shoes are generally stouter and the blades are still easy to find.

All else being the same, pick your favorite color and go with it.

Track + Adapter Plate removes 3/4 inch depth of cut, so it honestly depends on the specific model of saw you've got.

6-1/2 inch saws are generally good to 1 inch material, the majority of 7-1/4 inch saws are good to 1-1/2 inch DOC, though some will still leave splinters on a 2x4 due to model variations, and your 8-1/4 inch saws are good to 2 inch material.

Doesn't matter - Pick the style and blade orientation you like. The only thing that changes is which end of the adapter plate becomes the "front", and the direction you make your cuts (right to left, or left to right)

Yes, with a 10-1/4 saw you can handle 3 inch materials. We offer a drop-down menu on the products in our Complete Universal Pro Series Track Saw Kits category that allows you to substitute a 10-1/4 inch saw adapter plate into a kit for $20 extra.

If you wish to have both the standard (6-1/2 to 8-1/4 inch) adapter plate as well as a larger 10-1/4 inch plate, or if you'd like an extra standard plate, they can be found here with the same drop-down style menu to select the size: Circular Saw Adapter Plates

You can take one of the 10-1/4 inch plates and modify it to work, but currently (July 2020) we don't have a cnc machine large enough to make the plates for the larger saws, and I don't particularly want to farm it out. Looking to add machine capability towards the end of 2020 or early 2021.

Your car or truck is nothing but some chunks of steel and bits of rubber and plastic.

The raw material costs aren't what you're buying - You're buying the expertise of one of the best wide-body aluminum extrusion companies in the US, one of the few plastic extrusion companies left that will willingly do dual-durometer plastic extrusions, and our support, knowledge, and backing on every one of the products that we design and sell.

These tools are literally designed and meant to last you a lifetime of use. If price is the only objection, use a 2x4 or a piece of angle-iron as an edge guide.

We also offer a custom DIY kit that consists of a 5lb chunk of aluminum bar stock, two small sandwich bags of plastic pellets, and a blank saw adapter plate for a very reasonable price.

A track saw can be more useful than a table saw for cutting large, heavy materials that are difficult to maneuver. The TrueTrac Track Saw System is portable, easy to set up, and provides excellent accuracy for long, straight cuts, making it a valuable tool for various woodworking tasks.

Yes, a guide is essential for a circular saw if you want to achieve straight, accurate cuts. Using a guide rail system, such as the TrueTrac Universal Guide Rail System, helps ensure precision and safety, making your woodworking projects easier and more professional. A guide prevents the saw from wandering, allowing for consistent and clean cuts every time.
