I use rockler’s pitch and resin remover.

If I recall you mix it with 1 part water, and 1 part resin remover, I don’t recall anymore I have a 1 gallon gas container that I have filled with the already mixed resin remover. I’ve had it for a year or so and it still works.

When I want to clean my blade I poor enough into an oil drip pan that has a spout on it, instead of the blue container they sell. Then I let it soak for about 10 minutes and I use a tooth brush on the blade teeth for any extra “scrubbing”.

After the blade is clean I use a funnel and a paint filter to poor the solution back into the gas container and it’s good to go.

I also keep a small container of this stuff near my drill press, after using a drill bit I drop it in the container for 10 minutes or so and then use a tooth brush on it, keeps my bits clean and use the same on my router bits.
