Re: swaging and shaping V.P.D. saws

I just experienced a new problem. I ground in a saw to a new profile. I was trying to shorten the face a little to cut down on the saws chattering in deep cuts. When I started to swage the saw I noticed a lot smaller swage in the two shortes teeth in the pattern. Upon investigation I found that the die was bottoming out in the gullet. The cure was of course to make the gullet deeper.
