I am looking for some advice for what to do on a project I have
started. I am trying to cut some Weyerhauser Melamine panels for a
shelving system to go in the utility room. My problem is that when I
get about halfway through the 16" panel, the blade starts to bind up
in the cut and it begins to burn the panel. I got through the cut but
really mangled the last three to four inches. BTW I am using a
Circular Saw with a DeWalt Laminates Blade.
What am I doing wrong? Would it be better just to borrow some time on
my friend's RAS, or do they even cut that wide? What would you
16 inch on a ras might be too wide it depends, try cutting half way
through and tapping a wedge into the kerf to help keep the halves
seperated so they dont pinch, cut SLOW, let the blade do the work.
