Jake, do the 8s pull your carriage into your hardwood logs much? The 10s were pulling my carriage into an apple log quite a bit.

Not as bad, I used to notice it the most when I was edging boards. It seems like the wider the cut, the less it tries to pull. I added some weight to my carriage (3' I-beam, 20 hp v-twin, 8 gallon fuel tank, and a battery). Now that my carriage is heavier I don't really notice it pulling at all.

Cool thanks.
Now if a guy could regulate how much "grab" it has and raise the tail end a couple inches he'd have auto feed and auto return. :D

         The Kasco blade profiles in 10  deg and 7 deg are almost an exact clone to WM 10/30 and 7/34 profiles in 7/8 tooth spacing. There should be very little issues in sharpening the Kasco blades. The 4 deg Kasco blades are a completely different tooth profile from the WM 4/32 profile. As far as I know, no cam or full profile CBN wheel to match the Kasco 4 deg profile.

A cam for a 10/30 blade profile ( or similiar ) works great.  The Kasco 4 deg. shares the 10 deg. profile, just a different hook angle.  Just adjust the head angle to 4 degrees and dress the stone accordingly. 

No full profile CBN wheel avaiable... yet.

EDIT:  As of Oct. 2015  Rixsaws has a CBN wheel for the Kasco 4 degree blades

Thanks, that was what I was wondering!

Got 2 blades last year.
I like them, but I have about 50 blades in rotation now so dont need any more, but when I do I'll certainly contact kasco.
