Hi everyone, just looking for a bit of info. I have been using my Veritas cross-cut Carcass saw for a few months and I really like the feel of it. I have been noticing that while sawing, I often end up getting a bit of jamming from the saw mid cut. I am trying to maintain proper position, not handle things too tightly and keep a good stance, but it continues to jam slightly. When I was examining the blade tonight I noticed that there is a slight bend in the blade that starts about a third from the end and continues for approximately 3 inches towards the back. Since I am fairly new to this, I am not sure if this happened while cutting (who knows, it might have), but I feel like there hasn't been anything that I would have done that would have been able to bend the blade. In any event, I am just curious to know at what point a bend is a problem. Do all saws have a little bit of bend or warp or are most quality back saws dead straight? Just to clarify, it's hardly noticeable, but I can see it when i look down the blade. Any and all info is much appreciated.
