Re: cutting books with a circular saw



I would like to thank everyone for their responses to my request about
circular saws and bookbinding. I will send them on to the person who posted
this to the Usenet group rec.woodworking.

I particularly appreciated the little film clip, it showed very neatly how
the pixie trimmer worked. I suppose that one could make a sled that rode in
the miter slot of the tablesaw, with some sort of clamp to hold the
magazines solid.

Thanks very much everyone.
