Clean cuts on Plywood

Mark Corke has shown us a wonderful tip for cutting ply. Go on over to his web site to get the full blurb.

Mark says.....  The picture shows some cuts that I made in half inch thick marine ply and as you can see they are perfect straight from the saw. The blades that I use for this type of cut is the Bosch 101AO, which have needle teeth not too dissimilar to those found on Japanese pull saws. With the pendulum action turned off they really are the nuts with almost no tear out even when cutting against the grain on the face laminate. A quick trawl of the internet shows these blades can be had for around $8 for a pack of five which considering the little cleaning up you have to do once you have cut out the component is money well spent.
