Hey fellow LJ’s needing your insight and wisdom again I’m sure I can figure this out through trial and error but I’d like to reduce the error part? LOL!
I’ve been using a 1/2 inch 3 tpi hook tooth, raker blade to remove some checks and cracks as Charles Neil demonstrated several years ago.. Charles told me more teeth the better in this repeat gluing and cutting process. It is done two or three times until the crack is trimmed out of the board which may be important with highly figured /expensive wood (wide pieces).
The blade has done a good job, but I wanted to refine the cut and have a smoother face. Put on a new oOlsen 6 tpi skip tooth, raker set blade. I was amazed how quickly it set up, stayed true, and even my drift test was minimal.
So I set the table to the angle of the crack and proceeded to cut my second cut through the crack. When I finished I had a lot of the typical vertical cut strokes in the crack.
Tension on blade was good, and I thought my rate was good.
Looking for suggestions as to improving this angle cut without sanding or scraping.
