I got rid of my table saw because I never used it, after I got my track saw. You can rip anything with a track that you can with a table saw.

What do your new want to rip. I'm sure there are videos out there. I'll go look for a couple and post them.

Ok here's how to joint long boards with a track, I did this myself a few times, fantastic way to joint

Here is a discussion on ripping jigs. It started because woodpeckers came out with a guide rail ripping jig and the discussion starts from there. Basically there are different jigs you can buy or make. This will give you a idea of what's out there.

FG,

I did some searching and here is a long thread as to wherther a track saw can replace a table saw. This might help you as it has a lot of varied opinions including mine of the subj.
