DWS520K plunge saw - best blade for cutting high gloss units

Post by dazlp » Mon Mar 20, 2017 2:38 pm

Hi. Looking for advice on the best blade for cutting high gloss (graphite grey) kitchen doors. I need to mitre a 'J shaped' corner post for some handleless doors. At the moment I'm getting some very fine micro chipping on the cut line (its a fine white line - which I assume is the primer). I'm using the standard (48T) blade supplied with the DWS520K. Is there a better one I could use or am I always going to get the white line (it's literally 1 or 2mm thick). If not, any ideas how I can complete the mitre and not be left with the white line in the join?

Cheers
Darren

i had to do this recently. but i couldnt track saw it as the post was too small. i took the door to the timber yard i go to and got them to cut it down on their table saw.

i then popped to screwfix and got some grey silicone which was a bang on colour match. looks exactly the same as a corner post
