Get better cuts from any circular saw

After cutting the guide to match
your saw, clamp that edge directly
on your layout marks. Then cut while
holding the saw against the fence.

Make your own guide

A custom edge guide for your saw not only beats tear-out, but also makes it easy to align cuts. Start by building a jig based on the drawing below right; adjust the width as needed for your saw. We made ours long enough for crosscuts in 4'-wide sheet goods. Make the base's cutting side about 1/2" wider than the distance between your saw's blade and the footplate edge below the motor. Trim the guide to custom-fit your saw by running the footplate against the fence to create the zero-clearance support. Clamp the jig on the "keeper" piece when cutting because the jig does not provide zero-clearance for the cutoff.
