Either one. Obviously the TS will produce a much cleaner cut.

I'll make a few V blocks to keep it from "rolling" on me......

Ahhh PVC pipe, I thought you meant flat stock......V blocks or just a box cradle will work.

Ripping PVC


oops.......... forgot 1 word...LOL I built an Arbor out of Rough sawn Cedar to match the Garage.. as it's attached. I want something smooth on top so I can put an Awning on it (and not have it rip on the rough sawn stuff)

I figured some of the grey PVC Elect. conduit ripped in 1/2 lengthwise would work.

I would probobly make a 3 sided box used upside down over the pipe. For the top, double up the material so you can make one cut through the pipe with the blade adjusted high enough so it just nicks the cradle. Maybe an end cap to eliminate any flying pieces and to push the material through.
