Saw blade chips wood when crosscutting
I've a 10-inch Ryobi table saw. It cuts quick and straight. However, when cutting across the grain on white pine, it chips the edges back as far as 1/4 inch away from the cut. My 7 1/4 inch DeWalt circular saw has not this problem on the same wood. However, I would rather use the Ryobi because it's easier to get a straight cut with a table saw.
What can I do about this? Should I get a better blade made for fine work? How about laying some painter's tape along the path of the cut? Any ideas would be appreciated.
