Hey all,
I recently bought a used 14" Delta BS. I am happy with it but I have no experience with this type of saw. I currently have a 0.25" blade installed. How tight of a radius can I expect to cut with this blade. I used it to cut a 1.0" radius. It worked well but I did some back and forth moves that left some ridges to sand out. I'm no sure how far I can deflect the blade trying to force it into the desired arc.

I've seen a demo video on youtube where someone cuts a three dimensional reindeer. He was really deflecting the blade to make some small curves. Is this normal or was that overdoing it?

Any advice is appreciated.
