Topic tags/keywords: miter saw

I see on a lot of you tube videos,people making like a scoring cut across the top on the wood there cutting before making the real cut though the lumber when using a sliding miter saw. Is there a reason,does it really do anything?I have tried it a couple times to see and haven’t noticed any difference.

if they cut to the cut then there is no chance of splintering the grain. I dont usually do it.
