when mitering a baseboard with a power saw i have had a problem where the cut is not 45 degrees,when I hold it against the fence of the saw, because the baseboard is not the same thickness from top to bottom.

how do you overcome this problem?

Varying widths (because of a profile, for instance) should have no effect on your ability to miter the baseboard to a 45. Is your blade sharp?

the saw is a new crafsman and I have a 200 tooth blade, the cut is smooth , but I have found if I hold the baseboard flat on its bottom edge , I can get a 45 with some trim. Also I am the trim is standing in the saw , not laying flat .

Would tht make any differance?
