Jim, I can t imagine how you can get rounded edges unless the chisel is entering the stock at an angle. Maybe a picture or two would help. Sorry I don t have an answer for you.

Art, it sounds like the bit is crushing the fibers at the entry of the cut. So he’s not getting a crisp line on the face. I had the same issue. The bits “seemed” sharp, but the hollow inside the chisel was very rough, preventing the evacuation of chips and the cutting edge wasn’t really sharp because of the poor milling on the inside edge of the chisel. That is crushing the fibers before they’re cut, leaving a rounded over edge or line. Well I’m guessing that’s what he was referring to :)
