while you say your ripping that means your using the fence correct to do so? if so then you must have the fence set out of parrel with your blade ,,your binding between the blade and stock right. also as rennie said you might be going to slow,, when they show those blades at a show settun there and spinning threw a block of cherry and no burning well that saw isnt any one you or have set up..thats atweaked saw for the shows.. you will get some burn sometimes wood isnt fire resistant. the off sideof the cut being burnt to could be from interanl stress in the wood or again rennie said speed trouble
