Oh but we do and we can show ;) Dunn and others have measured the feed rates where striations are found. We know the diameter and width of the blades to within very close approximation. Isn't this the elephant in the room after all?

Fast saws and the work was easy. No banging on chisels. Don't people pay any attention to the many vids out there/in here which clearly show these feed rates etc.? Can't be done with hand tools man. nuhuh
