Sharpening Saw Blades

Sharpening circular saw blades Chicago

Can circular saw blades be sharpened?  Yes!!  When your saw blade becomes dull, it will give you a rougher finish as well as your saw’s motor will have to work harder and may burn out sooner.  Sharpening your saw blades can be done at a fraction of purchasing a new blade.
Nearly all circular saw blades today have carbide cutting teeth brazed (or welded) onto steel plates.  Carbide is extremely hard which holds it edge for a very long time.  The problem with carbide-tipped saw blades is that they require diamond grinding wheels in order to sharpen.  Also, sharpening carbide tipped saw blades is so complicated that you can easily destroy the blade.
