When done, raise the footplate and
make the through cut.

Score the cutline first

Make your cut in two passes instead of one. A shallow scoring pass cleanly shears the surface fibers rather than lifting them upward.

A 1/16 inch deep scoring cut is your best bet for stopping tearout. That is why the big industrial saws have a scoring blade built in.
