Stephen,
     I also started to think about when you set and then sharpen and how this could cause not very smooth cuts.  The blade itself has different levelso of steel tension in them, I found this out by setting the teeth and some requireing additional pressure to set.  Now if this is the case when setting the tooth they all may not actually bend at the same exact spot it could be higher or lower.  Then when you sharpen even though you take off the same amount at each toot depending on where the tooth was actually bent into its set position could cause the cut to not be smooth.
