    It could be that you are turning the wood too fast and the blade has not had a chance to catch up.
    The blade is deeper than it is wide so if you turn too sharp the balde may catch.
    The blade may have a slight bow on it due to deflection when you are pushing the wood. If you give the blade a rest by easing up just before you turn, the blade can catch up and the chatter will not be as bad.

      One thing that helps is to use plain skiptooth blades, not reverse. Of course, make sure the blade isn't in upside down.

      The only other thing I can think of is, it could be that you are using female wood. There is no way to completely stop females from chattering.

          Crank the speed up! If you are already at "high", what Carl said.....

            Mike, this is just downright rude, There are only two reasons for wood chatter and believe me it is not female wood.
            1) The blade is in upside down.
            2) The wood probably has a cup in it causing vibrating against the table.

            I might yell and scream alot, but I've never been accused of chattering.
            Woman do not chatter, when we got something to say we just spit it out.

              I think its from turning to fast, and using a blade not suited for what you are doing. What size/type of blade is it? Dale

                      Ok, thanks Steve,that blade should turn ok for you. I'm guessing its mainly a issue of a little more practice. And , cranking your wood around real fast to get the tight V might also be causing you trouble.Like Carl stated, the blade needs a chance to cut, cranking your wood around to fast will twist your blade, binding it in the cut, and somethings gotta give.

                        Hey Mikey,
                        What is this? I'm gone a couple of months only to come back, check in, & find you in trouble again! I need to leave again for awhile. Do I need to hire someone to watch you?

                          Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole.

                          My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                          New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                          I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.
                          Thanks

                          Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                          Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
