knotscott did such a fantastic job of explaining saw blades here: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/28163#reply-296605
I thought I would ask a question I have been wondering about for a while. I have an old saw with a steel blade I am using to cut pallets into firewood. I touch up teh blade with a file once in a while. The angel of teh teeth is flattening out a bit, so I used a rat tail file to add a little gullet back into the blade and put a little approach angle back on teh teeth.
I am wonder what is teh down side to having that approach angle flattening out. I don’t think it really matters much cutting up scrap, just curious.
