Recently I had my 12in SLR blades resharpened. Installed it and started the saw and I could hear something was wrong. I just could tell by the tone of the blade some thing was not right. Double checked everything to be sure I didn’t install backwards, hitting on the caterpillar belt ect,ect…. All is well, so I cut a few pieces and was not satisfied and took it back the same day. Couple days later got it back, reinstalled and all is well. Reason was there were several teeth cracked and needed to be replaced. Found out his 16 yr old kid grinded the blade and was a newbie and he said it was probably dropped before sharpening, several teeth were replaced, resharpened, but it did not solve the ones that were cracked…. They did not charge for adding some new teeth and resharpening it.
