Table saw...set the blade to just slightly more than the thickness of the wall and run through twice (one cut on each pass) and you'll have two nice halves.

I have had bad catches on both table saws and band saws.....the best luck I had was to clamp a straight edge on the PVC pipe and use a saber saw .

Using with a tablesaw or bandsaw can make some dangerous results also. To do it right, you must support it so that it doesn't try to roll while cutting. It can be done by adding a clamp or something to insure it doesn't try to roll.

Band saw with the fence on one side and a clamped fence on the other to keep the material straight. You can even screw down some overhead strips to hold the stock flat across the table. One person to feed the stock and a smart person to pull it at the end.
