I received a great Christmas gift,A saw blade sharpener.
The tool is simple enough,with 2 sharpening wheels,one diamond bonded steel(for face grinding only) and one emery type beveled wheel(for both face and edge grinding) both have their limits and needs.
The reason this is so necessary for the shop is simple,we have 30 blades,most needing sharpened.
The question I have is how to clean the resin off the edges,what to use?I cut new southern yellow pine and old barn siding for projects and the resin builds up quickly,this wood is full of the stuff.Eventually the blade just burns(edges) and smokes,requiring change..well needless to say,it’s high time we found a solution to this problem.
