Cutting up a piece of wood from active rank is really pretty simple if you keep several things in mind and measuring tape is accurate. Here is what I do to make perfect cuts each time I used my power saw.
First thing I want you to do is check your tape measure. Make sure the hook on the end of the tape is straight. Dropping a tape measure on a hard surface can cause the hook in the bin. This problem can create a measurement error.
You can straight the end of your tape measure tip using two flat-nosed pliers. Once you have your measurement, make your mark with an arrow tip. Use a framing square to establish a square line through the center of the tip of the arrow point. Mark an “X” on the opposite side of the line from where you measured. This is where the saw blade must come to make the perfect cut.
When you start to cut, be sure the blade stays on the side of the line where the “X” is marked. Cutting down the center of the line or on the wrong side of your mark will make the board too short by the weight of the saw blade.
Perfect saw cut are simple. Remember, make sure you have an accurate tape measure and stay on the right side of the line.
