    Not enough info.

    Your question is like “ my car doesn’t work. What gear should it be in?)

    You need to describe the filing of the teeth ( universal teeth isn’t a term with meaning) is it filed rip or cross cut?

    You need to describe how you used it to determine it isn’t set properly. ( cut across the grain or cut with the grain)
    Sloppy kerf?
    Saw binds?
    Saw cuts to one side?

    You need to describe the wood you cut ( wet, dry, hardwood, softwood , did the kerf close when you cut)

    And you need to tell us which model eclipse set. The hammer on the set needs to be small enough for the teeth. Paul has a video on Fixing that.

    Show us pictures of the saw teeth and your attempted kerf cuts.and maybe a picture of your set with your saw’s teeth.

    Also, Paul has maybe a dozen posts on sharpening , the Eclipse saw set, and S&J saws on his blog. I suggest you go through the videos. While we might be able to help with a specific question, Paul’s well scripted posts and videos are a better place to learn general principles.

    The common woodworking site has several posts on using and refining the Eclipse set in the “ Guides” section.
