Yep, on all counts. As I said, it's a decent blade. Just doesn't produce the quality rip that can go directly to glue up like I get with the Tenryu. At least, not on my Shopsmith. 

I rarely cut any soft wood but, the LM does ok in poplar. But not mesquite or white oak. 

 

don't experience what you are but then again .. no Shopsmith...

And that may make a difference, too. The guy that first recommended Tenryu to me was my sharpening guy, down in PHX. He sharpens for a lot of Shopsmith users, also. They are a quirky machine. 

BTW, if anyone needs a good sharpening service, this guy is great. Totally automated and can grind a specific profile for the customer. He does work for customers all over the country. And, turn around time is quick.

Used a lot of Freud. I'll pass..

 

The company I work for buys all Tenyru..

 

Personally I'm an Amana fan. Have compared Freud and will still continue to buy Amana for personal shop...
