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...

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
