I decided to sharpen the firewood/ pallet blade today. It was cutting pretty slow. Thank goodness it is a combination blade without too many teeth. While I was filing, the first time I have tried this by the way :-)), I thought I should have put the blade on backwards and jointed it with a file. Has anyone ever done this?
20 minutes after fininshing the filing, I hit a nail!! Murphy’s law, I thought about that before I filed, but it did cut very well and I could defiinitely tell the difference after I hit it. The filing job must have been ok, eh? :-))
BTW, I cut for several days breaking down pallets before I hit the first nail ;-))
