Tooth crumbling on red oak. Not on the corners, in the middle of the tooth. I just got in 6 IKS saws and the factory tooth even crumbled.They were frozen,but even in the warmer weather they still crumble some.I am just learning this job .The person who is teaching me has even had trouble with this problem.On any other type of logs it is no problem.My teacher has been filing for about six years.We have both talked about it and we think it has alot to do with the speed of the band mill.I would wecome any advice you could give me. Fax our mill at 660-248-2508 Thanks for your help.
