From a P-C circular saw instruction manual:
"It is recommended that the depth of cut be adjusted so that the saw
blade just protrudes through the thickness of material being cut."
Is this true, untrue or perhaps generally true? Does the same hold for a
table saw I assume?
Up till now, with my circular saw, I've set it deeper. I imagined the
blade moving along taking little bites from the underside. I've got some
panels to cut for cabinet ends and the back of a peninsula and tear-out
on the bad side isn't important.

They tell you that for safety. Less blade poking out past the work
piece means less chance of cutting thing syou don't want cut, like
stray fingers, knees, electrical cords, etc.
Please remove the spamtrap to email me.
The question isn't "are there weapons of mass destruction?",
the question is "who has them now?"

The arguments are rehearsed on my web site. Please look under Circular
