I had the same problem with a smaller piece made from Tzalam and Cocobolo but I think their Janka hardness is very close to Purpleheart. I had to slow way down “like RussellAP said” and let the blade do the work.

There again all I was doing was cutting a curve into a small piece but it was on my scroll saw and I did slow down to about 1/10th of my normal cutting speed i operate at on softer woods.

Nice work by the way.
