I hate it when this happens!

>Thought I would cut up some blanks out of a big maple log this morning before it got too muggy to work in the shop. Looked over one of the pieces (which was a little dicey anyway and was originally headed for the burn pile) and decided maybe I could get a blank out of it. Shoulda listened to my original assessment! It grabbbed...had to cut the blade out. By the time I got thru installing a new blade and tuning (whenever I do that, I go over the entire saw to clean it up, de-rust, wax, etc) the sun had started to bring the temp in the shop to an uncomfortable level. Shoulda listened...shoulda listened..wasted all that morning "cool" darnit!
