Sunday was my wife’s and my 29th anniversary. She got earrings and necklace and I received a Dremel 400 with a bunch of accessories. Lots of happiness around the Sawdustonmyshoulder house.

This morning in the shop, I sharpened 5 – 1/2 inch 4 tooth bandsaw blades with my new Dremel tool. Worked like a charm. $175 worth of bandsaw blades saved from the trash.

Take a look at this blog site about how to do this. I saw it several months ago but I didn’t have a Dremel. This site says that the resharpened blades most likely won’t be able to be used for veneer resawing but for everyday general use. I tested the sharpened blades and they work great!!

Here is the link to the site with a short video: http://www.woodturningvideosplus.com/resharpen-bandsaw-blades.html
