Hello,
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.
Thanks!

Try running a stone lightly down the sides of the teeth, flush with the plate. You may have some burrs on the edge of the teeth from filing. At least that's my thought.

you need to flush the teeth and that will level the set. Sometimes a burr, or perhaps a tooth or two that got set a little deeper than the rest.
