Cutting pegboard
 
I have a pegboard I need to cut to a specific size to mount.

What is the best way to cut it?

Can I cut it with a table saw or would that chew it up real bad?

It's a bit too thick to score with a razor blade I think.

1/8 or 1/4?
Table saw is fine.
Hold it down good.

1/4".

I tried using a diamond blade on an 4.5" angle grinder and it got hot with a burnt smell fast. Besides it will take forever to do 8 feet of it.

I will try the table saw tomorrow, for some reason I thought a wood blade will chew it up bad.

Thanks.

circular saw with a plywood blade. the fine teeth will make for a nice clean cut

Table saw with a fine tooth blade, that is used for paneling cutting.

Use whatever blade you have in the table saw and just go nice and slow, finished side up. Going slow is the same as using a blade with less teeth, lol

Never thought about it like that before.
Good one.

A table saw would be perfectly fine. I used to make these cuts at home depot all the time.

I've cut a bunch of peg board with my table saw. A circ saw would work fine too - if you are working with a large sheet, it can be clumsy on the table saw by yourself.
