    ... 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.

    Regards,

    J.

    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 30 odd years of using circular saws for a living, I have never once used the guide you watch the blade on the line that is always spot on.

    Maybe you might think about taking it back to where you bought it, with the receipt and ask them if they will refund it?

    The width of your saw blade is usually 1/8", so you will always be removing that amount from whatever your cutting. If you make a line and then cut removing the line you have probably made your board shorter than you intended. Make a mark on the waste side of the cut and err on that side to sneak up on the final dimension. As has been mentioned before, make many practice cuts and you will quickly answer all the questions your asking.

    Yes, I think that is what it means.

    This is what the owners manual says about the lines :

    My problem with the DeWalt planner is that I ordered one and it doesn't seem to be coming in.
