Whats it called and how to stop doing it
I don't know the term for this but it seems to happen to me frequently. I'd like to know how to prevent it.
When cutting a piece of wood, ply, osb whatever, with a skill saw, when I get almost to the end of the cut the piece breaks and one edge corner is broken out while the other has the stub still attached. It seems that when the leading edge of the blade gets to the end, the small piece that isn't cut yet by the trailing edge is what breaks off.
Now I surmise part of it could be due to an unsupported off-cut, which isn't always possible or if supported, maybe there is an issue with the support of each side not being level with each other... or?
Before I start cutting my SS I have to correct whatever it is I'm doing wrong as I don't have the extra material to waste.
