Has anyone used the scarfing attachment for skill saws advertised by West System designed by Gougeon Brothers? I just picked up the 2012 West Marine catalog and seen it in there. I works for up to 3/8" plywood. Does it do a good job?

Make one out of scrap plywood. I'll have to find the picture of the one I made and post it.

Can't say as I've tried that method but did look at it when I was looking into scarfing my panels. Having been a carpenter for years and having made my own scarfs I wonder how dead accurate it can be. I wound up making my own scarfing jig with an old dead table saw set up and a router, but my second choice would have been an adapter I saw that as far as I know is still made. It was designed for a specific Makita planer. Lots of ways to skin a cat, plus the set up isn't all that cheap if it's for a one project use.

A couple of pictures of one that uses a skill saw. Note: use an ultra fine blade, not one like that is pictured.

Or another version with a router that I have used.

lakeracer,

My scarf jig is essentially the same as your circular saw jig...works great. I stole the idea from another site.
