I’d like to make a guide for crosscutting boards and smaller panels with my worm drive circular saw. I got my inspiration from the kreg KMA2600 square cut.
I would have to mirror the jig and hold it against the workpiece with my right hand and saw in left hand. That puts me where I can’t see the blade, plus I’m right handed. Also, I would always have to adjust to account for the kerf thickness.
If I build it in the same orientation as the Kreg version, the wider side of the saw’s shoe and all the motor weight would bear on the waste side of the cut. It just wouldn’t be very stable and safe.
I apologize, I know that’s all very hard to understand without me acting all of it out.
I find the saw awkward in almost every task I do.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there a trick I’m missing.
