|The Spear & Jackson|
|Saw plate 0.026" thick|
|Total set of teeth was 0.027"!!|
|See any problems here?|
Well, back to the original problem. I re-set the teeth before final sharpening and with a little rubbing of the sides of the teeth on a diamond stone I managed to get a very consistent set of 0.032" to 0.033".
|That's more like it!|
The moral of the story: when your tools are not performing properly, take the time to check them out. It could save you lots of time and headache later.
