Default Are these typical saw marks?

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if these results are typical?


Everyone has given you some good advice, but I'm going to chime in with my
own two cents. I've got a Grizzly 1022 with a WWII. I haven't checked the
blade-fence alignment for a while but the last several times it was right
on.

On most woods it cuts smooth like glass with no burn. On other woods, it
burns. One batch of maple cut perfect. Another, different batch, always
burned. That batch also squeezed the splitter. I checked both with a
moisture meter and they both read 8 percent.

I don't try to figure it out any more. For some reason some batches of
lumber cut perfectly for me and others, they don't behave. I've learned to
be happy when the wood cuts nice and if it doesn't, send it through the
jointer or handplane it.

Just a wild guess, but perhaps you had a bit of reaction wood. I once
had a piece of oak, about 2x2, that I was sawing on my bandsaw for a
table leg. There was nothing unusual looking about it but when I got
about half way down the length, it closed up so tight on me that the
blade stopped fast. I had to get a chisel to spread the cut before I
could finish it. I'm not talking prying here - I had to use a mallet to
get the chisel into the kerf!

Perhaps your maple was moving just a bit, pinching the splitter and blade...
