Hey Ben, that burning you are referring to may not be associated with the blade at all. I’d more likely suspect a misalignment of the fence to the blade. I’m sure that there are several schools of thought on this, but on my saw, the fence is set a little wider on the back side of the blade than the front side. This guarantees that when you are ripping, the material between the blade and the fence will not rub against the back side of the blade, causing… guessed it…............burning. Try adjusting your fence and see if that doesn’t correct your problem.
