I've been trying out hand cutting dovetails for the first time in 35 years (since I was first taught them at school in fact) and I'm having a lot of trouble cutting the pins straight.
I know I'm not exactly expert at wielding the saw but I really can't quite work out how I could be making a mistake that would result in my cuts veering off to the left. It isn't simply a case of 'get it lined up straight before you cut, dummy', it's more that the cut actually *curves* left. That seems like it must surely be an issue with the blade.
The saw is a 6-7 year old Paragon dovetail saw I got from Garret Wade and have barely had time to even try before now. Could it be the kerf is unbalanced and biasing the cut?
Advice please folks. What am I doing wrong, or what do I need to have done to the blade?
