I am going to present this question to the group. Saw restoration and sharpening is not an area I have really spent much time in yet so I am far from an expert. So I ask is this saw plate worth trying to sharpen up or should I explore other options?
I WOULD like to use the original plate if it is at all usable but like I said.. I’m hoping some folks who are much more knowledgeable on the subject will help me out here.
First some before pics…
And sanded from 80 grit up to 220 grit.. (I tried my best to get a good representation of it’s current condition)
And just the faintest etch still visible..
So what say you? Is this going to be usable or is it a lost cause?
Thanks for the help!
