    Wavy cuts

    A guy on my route has a smallish mill. He was showing me boards & they had hills and valleys.

    Any idea why the cuts are not smooth?

    Typically due to several things...
    -Underpowered mill running narrow bands
    -Under tensioned
    -Crowding/trying to feed too fast
    -Rarely poorly sharpened blades (generally a poorly sharpened blade or dull will just dive or climb)
    Sometimes I just want to look at pretty pictures,... Thats when I go to the Turners Forum

    Thanks,

    I will pass along your advice.

    My experience is that as a blade dulls it starts cutting wavy boards. First sign of an uneven cut I change blades.
