I have little skills in woodwork
I have just bought a cheap sliding compound saw. All works OK but the saw
rips pieces of wood off the wood it is sawing (hardwood). The blade is a 40
tooth tungsten carbide blade. What is recommended for precision cuts
You need a high quality blade designed for crosscutting. It will probably
have more like 65-80 teeth. The blade you have on may be a rip blade.
BTW, you get what you pay for when you shop for saw blades.
g'day Old Bloke, coupla things to try:
- put a waste piece underneath and on top as a sandwich,
- are you pulling or pushing the handle (push it),
- try some tape on the top,
What timber are you cutting? Is the saw a GMC or Ozito by any chance?
