Hoping someone can help me with this…
I filed and set a Disston D-8 crosscut 8tpi yesterday. 15 degrees rack, 20 degrees fleam. Teeth points are all nice and sharp, as well as slightly set.
It followed the line with no guiding when I made a cut down a piece of 5/4 pine, but I found the cut was really ragged and even though it followed the line, it was extremely course… almost as rough as a chainsaw. Did I do something wrong? Did a 10 TPI Atkins and it came out great. Cut was smooth and square.
