My saw is backwards from yours! My motor is on the left, yours on the right. Seems yours would be easier to guide. Have they all changed? Mine's a good corded Milwaukee, maybe 15 years old. It replaced my cheap SkillSaw whose motor smoked one day!
cant believe you checked the blade line up with the battery still in, bbb bad move, unsafe. nice vid though
"Not bad for an old gay"?
Another tip: Makita makes a far better saw than a Dewalt.
Depth setting the blade is ignored...for the inexperienced the blade will often bind. Table saw is the same, depth set is crucial to safe operation. Many do not even know that you can set the depth. Basics here please.
I'm pleased to say that's what I do, and no one ever told me to!
You never mentioned the depth of the blade.Excellent tip all the same.
Works great unless you’re left handed like me ☹️
85%? From what orifice did you pull those stats?
Simple but helpful video, thank you!
Wow! Such a simple idea I never thought of. I hate free handing with a circular saw! I'll always drag out the 75 pound miter box . Fat chance I'll ever cut a straight line in a sheet of plywood.
Great job, thank you.
I cut the first half inch by hand, then slot blade in - perfect every time.
My top tip would be set the depth just a little bit more than you need. Do not have it set to the deepest all the time. It's safer and easier to use.
I can never cut a straight line
Largely depends on the material - you will get varying degrees of break out.
If the aesthetics of the finished cut are not critical then a single pass with the saw is normally ok. It is usual to scribe the cut line with a knife and cut up to that to minimise break out if a better finish is required.
I would us the latter method and finish with the plane to guarantee the best outcome.
Checking the blade against the front notch is so obvious, I wonder why I have never done this! A simple tip, but well worth putting out on YouTube.
85%? Not 87?
