    Re: Dewalt DWE575 issue

    Like Jerome, I never use the guide as it's too easy to misalign with the abuse a saw gets on a job site the plate is just there to give you a stable base watch the blade and there is no margin for error.

          ... In line with Frank's comment, you can make a fairly precise cut by measuring the distance between the blade and the outside of the sole (use the wide side; easier and safer cut). Then, position your straight edge the exact distance from the line of cut. The blade will remove material on the waste portion. This works well with pieces that are wider than the plate of the saw. For narrower pieces you will need to create a wider surface under the saw, for example with two more pieces of 2x4.

          I hope this helps.
