I tried this for the first time tonight with no experience (no research either). Using a 1/4 inch blade, tried to cut 3/4 cherry to a circle with a radius of about 3 inches. Within two minutes the blade came off the wheel and got crimped in that process! $30 down the drain!

Some good tips here. One, I need to file the back of the blade, two use a little more tension. Next time I will experiment with a softer, thinner wood, larger radius until I get this right.
