I make a lot of furniture (bedrooms, studies etc) using cut & edged MFC from Kronospan, Finsa Egger etc. I can usually make pretty clean cuts but sometimes (and with some boards like hacienda Black, which seems to have a lot of mica in it) I would like a cleaner cut. Especially when making shelves which I would like a clean cut both top and bottom.
I use a Makita circular saw (190 mm blade) and it's quite a chunky beast. I also have made a few cutting guides and a bench which will support the board along its length when being cut.
Does a shallow cut (blade only going through the underneath by 1mm) give a better cut than a deep one? Are there any tricks I can use?
Sometimes when testing new boards I find that some of my blades give better results than others.
Is there a blade (that comes in 190) that is regarded as the best, or will I just have to bite the bullet and get a Festool?
And no, I don't have room for a table saw.
