All good advice. I had that problem quite some time ago. I used to creep into the log and then speed up. On the advice of a veteran sawyer, I started entering the cut at or near regular sawing speed and lo and behold, problem solved. Occasionally, I will have the same but less pronounced problem when sawing an oak that has been sitting for awhile. The end dries out and will push the blade around in the first few inches. I now dock all my log ends right before sawing, and haven't had that trouble again.
What is this leisure time of which you speak?
