I bought a new Dewalt miter saw and every time I use it, there is a burning smell. I saw this question about a similar issue, but I don't think my problem is the speed at which I'm cutting or the thickness of the wood (doing test cuts on a 2x2 and have made cuts a varying speeds to make sure I wasn't cutting too fast).
A quick internet search suggests this can happen when the blade is dull or when the blade is on backwards. However, my miter saw actually came with the blade pre-installed, and the teeth are facing the correct way. Also, I don't think the blade a new miter saw comes with would be dull, but maybe I am wrong.
The other thing that puzzles me is I'm not actually seeing burn marks on the wood. Anyways, I was hoping to get some advice on some additional things I could check to determine what is causing this burning smell. Also, are the blades that usually ship with Dewalt miter saws good quality, or should I go ahead and replace it?
