Before I took the plunge and bought my plunge saw (aka track saw), I got by using a home made zero clearance saw guide which I read about on Lumberjocks.

I made mine with a slight difference, the left side is for the saw, the right side has a zero clearance for a 12.7mm router bit in my 1/2” Dewalt router.

Making one is easy, it’s very accurate and cheap (in fact it didn’t cost anything as I made it out of scraps). Getting the first straight edge is the the difficult part, you can make one any size you want as well for ripping or crosscutting.

This guide is made with the wide part of the saws’ base plate running against the straight edge, to help it from tipping at an angle.
