I have several cams for my Cooks cats claw truth be known theirs little difference between them.I like the Timberwolf gullet shape and use that cam on almost everything, sometimes the gullet doesn't clean til the second or third grind. I think things have changed but Suffolk used to sell the Cooks grinder and cams. The cam for Simonds bands is also close to many profiles. Prehaps I'am a crude old dude but minor differences in gullet shape don't amount to a row of peas, sharp and set is what matters. Frank C.

In an image above, looks like the blade push rod is up-side-down on the cam.
Hope this is usefull (Warning 3.5Mb, not great but 150dpi)

pulled the cooks sharpener out and set it up today, none of the cams matched up to the 10* woodmizer saws, so I added larger wheels which raised the saw up in the holder and used the 12* pin this made a slight change in positioning so the cooks 8* cam was a close match to the tooth profile. Using one of Tommone's sharpening wheels and making light passes to avoid seeing any color, after about three passes avoiding the face of the tooth it was getting a full grind and another couple passes adjusted to include the face of the tooth was providing expectable results.
The extra time on the sharpener ment little Jo had plenty of saws set and ready for sharpening. We got two boxes of saws sharpened in an afternoon, and another box set and ready to be sharpened.
