  • cutting curly maple

    i am cutting a whale puzzle out of 3/4" curly maple with a FD-UR #5 blade and am having trouble with burning. Can you help me? i have increased and decreased speed and am careful not to push but it burns easily.

    Help please

    Have you tried clear packing tape over the pattern? One other thing to check is if the blade is in properly just in case it's in upside down.

      I always find the wood harder to cut when it's curly, instead of when it lies flat.











      .........okay, that was a dumb joke.

        Oh Shawn...that was a groaner......Some woods are just a bugger to cut, try the packing tape as suggested.

          I just cut from Curly maple. I think i was using a #7 with packing tape on top. I was able to cut no problem at high speed

            I always use clear packing tape when cutting 3/4" hardwood and use a sharp blade.
