I'm considering a Makita track saw. I wondered if anyone sees chip or tear out on the non-track side. I understand that festool has an insert (Festool 499011) which the blade cuts through, so something is contacting both sides of the cut. Does the Makita have something similar?
My main reason is that I'm going to attempt a continuous grain pattern, so I'd like to make one cut but have both sides useable.
