I agree on the pitch and rake for rip, zero rake, tiny bit of fleam has worked well in my (non-scientific) tests. Did you consider trialling progressive pitch and or rake in the rip tests?
Good to see, a company that does it's homework.
Keep up the good work.
We have played with progressive tooth saws but we in general don't see the point. just using a bit of the saw to make it easier to start isn't really necessary because hand filed saws are easier to start anyway and it makes the effect length of the working part of the saw shorter.
because we hand file you end up with a little bit of fleam and the rip saws - which makes it work a little cleaner. It's not officially part of the design but it turns out that way - which is a good thing.
I was mostly referring to backsaws and have never tried a progressive rip as you describe. However in the hands of someone who needs the extra speed of a 3 1/2 point over 4 1/2 point saw - would the difference in starting be something that becomes a non-issue with practice - so they might as well have filed the entire saw 3 1/2ppi?
Congrats on completing testing for another great tool!
Thanks for the encouragement.
