Ah, guess i missed the “nontrue” part.

You’re talking about a straight lining operation. Slider or gang saw would be ideal – except with the wet wood.

Do you have a jointer already ? I think I’d invest in that before a tracksaw setup, but in that light I’ll change my stance to you are a candidate for a tracksaw but not a front runner. The jointer offers more possibilities and economies of scale unless you also do a lot of sheetgoods too.

But , one thing you mention is you want to work in comfort. Taking the tool to the work is often better and I think this might be the case for what you’re asking about. Comfort usually comes at a cost, and this is no exception. You might very well decide it’s worth the added expense to setup a tracksaw system for this.

Only you can answer that.
