Maple burns on end cuts
I rarely use Maple...
Tinkering in the shop today and noticed that crosscutting small maple pieces were all burning (badly). The new blade is sharp, doesn't burn pine, fir, pywood or MDF, so I am assuming that the maple is the cause.
Also, It doesn't seem to matter if I go fast or slow, chop cut it or use a Sliding compound push cut.
For this particular project, the burn marks can be sanded out, but for future reference, how do you reduce burn on Maple crosscuts?
