This is a big thank you to not just the LJ’s who helped me with my CMS question, but to all of you. I guess I was having a bad day when I posted a question about my CMS, or just had a MASSIVE brain fart. You guys gave me some suggestions that I should have already known, but some how forgot (old age). I was able to clean up my cuts by just adding a piece of 1/8 inch plywood to my fence. Not only did it help with tear out, but I am able to make a more accurate cut every time. I know, I know I am a woodworker and should have known. But with my question, you guys were very helpful and knowledgeable. You guys also gave me food for thought when I have some money and can sharpen or buy a new saw.

I must have missed something somewhere—I don’t have a clue what you’re talkin’ about. Please fill me in with details, as I’m almost 63, and I get a lot of sleep, so it slipped by me somhow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I posted a forum question on fixing tearout on my compound miter saw a some guys responded with some simple fixes that I should have known about like putting a backer board on the fence to prevent the tearout.
