Has anyone experienced problems swaging and shaping vpd saws I use a #5 air swager with 5/8 die bar and 6900 shaper with 6x3x25 jaws. It seems the 3 shorter teeth of my 5 tooth pattern get a bigger kerf and more stock built up. these saws cut good but it is aggravating not getting consistant swages. It seems like the anvil doesn,t sit on the backs of all the teeth the same! Anyone got any ideas?
