Default Lane Shingle Mill Question

I am looking for a 36 inch saw blade for my Lane shingle mill and not having much luck but in the process I am getting some difference of opinion as to whether the blade needs to be tapered. Some say a tapered blade works better as per manufacturers recommendation , others say a straight blade works just fine. Any opinions on this?

Not sure about taper or not


a straight blade for it may be from a large mill with a worn out blade just cut in down in size to get what you want.
Look to a saw doctor in a place that mills a lot of timber, maybe in house or have own shop in the town.

I would add a tapered blade may jam, look into it a bit more with the saw doctor.

Have run 2 Chase mills one straight, standard blade, might even be an old cordwood saw blade. Other has tapered swaged tooth blade. Tapered blade wants more horse power but cuts straighter. Straight blade tends to wander a bit in harder wood and bends a worrisome amount when you get a jam. Just my observation. I'd get the taper if $$ don't matter. Its heavier of course, so you get more carry thru in knotty stuff if horse power is lacking. The taper also helps avoid jams by peeling the shingle out away from the log.
