When cutting the boards for my first project, the saw made a nice clean cut at the beginning, but the back part of the cut splintered up. I don't know anything about blades, but it has been mentioned on another post that saws come with a rougher cut blade. I think this saw still has the original blade. What do I need to know to buy one that cuts the wood clean for the entire cut? It is a 12" compound miter saw that I am using if that matters.
I don't like to go to orange or blue not knowing a thing about what I'm asking for. I'm already a little intimidated walking to that end of the store. Thanks for any knowledge you can pass on!
