    You don't! The whole idea of the Parf table is to eliminate the use of a table saw for cutting sheetstock.

    Use your dogs in the new holes with a length of timber as the "fence" to trim it. Just run the circ saw along it.

    Not entirely for cutting sheet goods.

    I made mine to use as an assembly, clamping and gluing table, not a cutting station. I don't even own a track or a circular saw and doubt I will ever buy one. In the odd situation that I need a full sheet of something, the timber places I use break then down for me, slightly oversized so I can trim them on my table saw. I do a lot of face frames, boxes, cabinets etc. I use the dogs and all their varieties, in line clamps, squaring blocks and hold downs to keep things square and aligned while I clamp/glue/screw/ etc. That's why its called a multi function table, because of its versatility.

    Wot he said!!

    If you don't have a track saw, use a regular circular saw & a STRAIGHT straight edge.

    I just bought my set a week ago. Mine is also hyper duper accurate. I also bought the Super Parf Dogs + Chamfer tool. The Super dogs are really good, especially with the little chamfered ring that keys into the chamfer on the doghole. Have checked with an engineer square and it's perfect 90 degree to the table. I thought about making my own jig ( how hard could it be right ) to make the dogholes, but I'm amazed at the quality and tight tolerences on everything. Expensive, but I'll forget about the cost soon enough. CNC would have cost similar amount.
