Your woodworking life will be easier if you cut sheet goods down to rough size before heading for the table saw, a great job for a circular saw and track system. In addition to rough cutting pieces to size, a track saw can be used to miter carcase sides, cross cut large pieces to length, and cut angles on large pieces. All tasks that are difficult to do on a table saw.

I have a circular saw and would like to know where I can buy a track to get more benefits of this tool
Hi, Antonio. Here is an article to help you build one yourself: http://www.wwgoa.com/article/shop-made-circular-saw-guide-cheap-easy-and-awesome/. This is a very handy jig to have in your shop. Many of the commercially available tracks come as part of a kit along with a saw, and are specially designed for use with a specific saw. But you can find commercially made jigs as well that will fit an existing circular saw. I’d suggest using Google to perform an exhaustive search on this, but here is one that I am aware of: http://www.eurekazone.com/Circular_saw_guide_rail_p/ezts108.htm
My shop is 12 x 16. Yet with a track saw, now for close to 5 years, no problem with 8′ rips, and easily 24″ crosscuts. However, I would recommend a ‘real’ tracksaw – I have the Festool TS-55. Yes, its horribly expensive. But IMO, its perhaps the one Festool really worth its exorbitant price. Particularly when you cut something like case-hardened 8/4 oak – you will appreciate the riving knife for safety. About the only thing its NOT good for – narrow rips from narrow stock. (The narrow board can be poorly supported under the track – but you can use a second board side-by-side underneath, which helps). Other than that, I rarely use my DW-745 at all.
Looks to be a standard circular saw with a base attached. No dust collection and the quality of cut leaves something to be desired.
