Kiss the Line Once I have my mark, I make a mental note as I walk to the saw – remembering which is my ‘good’ end, the piece I am keeping. Then, I line the sawblade up on my line, being ever so careful to just ‘kiss’ the line. :) That’s a mancave term. In other words, take the line off with the cut, but don’t go past it.
(To the left is my good end in this photo, opposite from my measuring photo in step 2, if that confuses you…)
