  I ordered a new box of WM 4* DH yesterday afternoon from WM PA and they got here at 1:00 pm. Took me almost 23 hours.  ;)
Good job Howard.  Goes to show you living in WV does have one perk.
What do you saw with the 4 degree blades?  I am waiting on Turbo 7s.

   I am steadily standardizing on 4* as my only blade. When I bought the mill I bought 10, 7 & 4 degree blades and have tried them all. I use 4* on any hard wood like oak, ash, etc. but I also find it does better on spruce or such where the wood is soft but there are hard knots which tend to make the blade want to jump up. I can cut soft wood with a 4* blade but I can't cut hard wood with a 10*. As I use up the 10 & 7 degree blades in stock I only replace them with 4's.

 I've been running 4 for around 17 years, sometimes I have to buy them at 10 but they get sharpened to 4.  Steve
