Ensure Straight, Square Circular Saw Crosscuts

First, control your saw using a speed square or a tool like the Square-Cut™ to guide the saw base. This will ensure that the saw blade moves straight across the width of the board.

Second, make sure that your saw’s bevel angle is set correctly. The blade should sit at exactly 90-degrees to the saw base. This will ensure that the saw blade moves straight through the thickness of the board.
