Reply To: Cutting Tongue on End Grain

Larry Geib

Really sharp cures a lot of ills. If you haven’t honed your cutter and are relying on the factory sharpening you will likely have problems on end grain.
Other things to pay attention to.
Take smaller cuts on end grain.
Check to se that the skate is parallel to the fence.
Also, make sure thecutter protrudes on both sides of the skate.
