I am in the process of building a 14" tree shear for my 763 Bobcat w/ Loegering steel tracks. I have 1" thick cutting edge for blades and was wondering how to bevel it. The top of the blade has a fairly steep factory bevel for 5/8" of the blade thickness, the last 3/8" is flat. I beveled the last 3/8" toward the bottom of the blade to create a "V". Finally I sanded that baby smooth. Will this cut efficiently with 2-5" rams pushing it? I see some factory ones with single bevels and some look like they have a slight double bevel like I described. Any thoughts or experiences?
