I recently purchased this Ryoba Nakaya Reiji off the auction site from a man in Japan. It cuts crosscut great. When I used it to cut the cheeks of a tenon it drifts on the far side of the cut, even after I cut down the line on the far side first.
This is my first Japanese saw and it is mostly likely user error.
As you can see its SYP, so from what I read this saw should be ok for what I'm using it for. Does anyone have any pointers or suggestions. I tried numerous times with the same results after making adjustments with my stance and the mechanics of my draw.
Thanks in advance for your responses,
