what would make the cut look like this? If I speed up it will not give me the gouge marks but I am pushing it so hard that when I hit a knot it gives me a wave with a brand new band and if the board is wide I cant push hard because I do not have the horsepower to go fast.
I didn't have the HP to run 7s ....
You do not have enough horsepower on your mill to run a 7 deg blade. You can adjust you mill until you are utterly frustrated and will not correct the problem. Cannot emphasize this enough, any mill with under 25 HP should be running a 4 deg blade as an all around blade. Low hp mills are not capable of maintaining optimum blade speed, narrow torque band, to be able use a blade of higher hook angle. Being able to maintain blade speed is paramount to sawing accurately while achieving peak productivity for your mills hp rating. Get yourself some 4 deg blades.
