There are specific instructions in your manual, but my suggestion is not to touch anything. Sounds like a tooth issue to me. Ernie

Clairmont, easiest thing to do is contact LCS and ask for a Download of the manual, be a lot less hassle than trying to type you through it on here. Good luck

  clairmount,I foundout with help while building my saw the distance from the center of the swing pivots to the out side of the blade tooth has to be the same distance as the center of your saw arbor to the tip of the saw tooth,if this happened when you changed saws I wouldn't touch any thing untill I changed saws.go back to the old one and se if the cut intersects,why did you change saws in the first place?I know if your saw has been doing ok and not ok with a blade change the probable cause should be the saw blade,if you adjust to this saw then the next one you put on will have to be adjusted again unless the blade is the same as the one you have taken off,what I'm trying to say all your saws have to be the same circumference if not the intersect will be different

Sounds to me like the blade is wrong as well. Those teeth have to be right. If it is the blade, you don't want to change the mill, you need to change the blade.

clairmont, I'm just curious, was it just one log?  These pics are of one particular log that for whatever reason (tension ???) made these lines on the vert cut (lumber came out ok).  I saw it in 'spots' on other logs but not the whole length like this one and it hasn't been an issue.  Though it's been so long since I've sawn a log (Mother Nature is working against me with this snow and cold :() I can't remember if it's an issue! >:(

John, I have also had that happen in one spot on a log, usually where a large limb knot is coming out the top.

  It appears the vertical plane may be off,slightly shifted down . That would make the blade cut into the log.  Instead of a 90 degree rotation it may be a 88 or 92 degree rotation.  Adjustment screws should be near the rotating axis.
Think like a farmer.

Not sure about the Lucas set up, but on the Peterson you can get a chunk of sawdust sitting on the adjustment bolt. This stops the blade from flipping to exactly 90 deg, and you get this sort of problem.

Any time the cuts don't line up, that's the first thing I look at.

It can also be a log that has tension and bows (either up or down) and creates those patterns. Doesn't means that you can't saw the logs. The individual boards are OK, they just end up with a weird pattern on the edges.
