Ripping pvc pipe lengthwise


I need to rip 16' of 8" ABS or PVC. Suggestions?

Snap a chalk line from end to end and free hand it?

Build an L shaped jig and use a circular saw with a rip guide?

Scrap the whole project and head for the bar?

The last should be first.........

The method depends on how accurate the cut must be. For not too.....just wing it. For a very accurate cut, you need something to hold the saw in proper alignment.

I ripped a 4" tube on my table saw with a fine toothed blade. Worked fine.

Do it all the time,be extremely careful and do it slowly. I try to avoid doing this practice if at all possible because I have that little guy in the back of my head telling me "No don't do it"
