 :D That 4 degree blade looks like it might need to be sharpened. It left a bit of a wavy cut prior to exiting that melon ;D ;D ;D Maybe it just needs a bit more set!

Please, Sir, can you please explain to the millions of goat fans just a little about the thought process that went into choosing a 4 blade.

Does the saw lube need to be on or off, to prevent a buildup on the blade?

What they all say, No seeds, At least it was straight and not bowed with big knots.
