I recently bought a Morse Carbide tipped blade. It says quiksilver on the box. The blade is brand new out of the box and it burns the wood when cutting. It did this the first time I put the blade on the saw.
Has anyone had a problem with this? And yes it is on correctly.

i assume you mean a table saw,and by correctly youve checked that the blade is aligned parallel to the fence? this is the biggest problem when you get burning.

yeah i saw that,but burning from a bandsaw? they do make table saw blades and sawzall blades too so we’ll have to wait for a little better explanation.hard to help someone with vague info.

Sorry Yes it is a bandsaw. I thought I put that in the post but I didn’t. It is a 3 tpi. It smokes the wood with a very strong smell and can even see the smoke in the air. I have had this from a dull regular blade but a quick resharpen and it is back to cutting fine. The odd thing is that if I push the wood through faster it doesn’t burn. But the blade doesn’t leave a nice smooth finish that I expected. I got the blade from a wood working store.

Do the teeth have any set to them? Any chance the wood you are cutting is trying to pinch closed after the cut?

If you are resawing it will have a sweet spot as far as feed rate.

Morse is more known for their metal cutting blades which don’t have the amount of set that wood cutting blades have. Are you sure the blade you got was for wood and not metal?

Carbide tipped bandsaw blades don’t have set per se. They are not bent out like a carbon or bi-metal blade, the teeth are ground like a table saw blade.

To the OP which model blade do you have? Have you tried cutting different wood?

Have your say...
