I use a Skil trim saw for all plywood cutting. Uusually, with a 4” carbide- tipped blade. I always use a locking guide bar, eiither 24” or 50”, and run the saw base alongside the guide bar. I support the cut off piece and, while cutting, stop the cut 8” in and apply a clamp across the kerf to help keep the sheet flat before resuming the cut. . With some wood stock I apply masking tape over both the face and rear cutting line and only allow 1/8” of the blade to show beneath the board.. I’ve never had a problem with this simple set up. It sounds, as some commentors have said, that there was an alignment problem.
