One of the reasons that a lot of carbide is taken off is because the blade was overworked and dull. Unlike other blades, Carbide teeth are all inline. Thus every tooth has to be exactly the same height or it does NOTHING, nada; it becomes a floater that just picks up residue which cakes on the blade. So, all teeth have to be cut down to the worst one. That’s why you want to keep your teeth clean (brush regularly); you don’t want any build up.

The worst sins I commit with saw blades is continuing to cut when I know I should change blades and not having a clean one on hand to change to. (Simple Green is great for cleaning them but don’t let it soak too long). I have three Carbides I’m shipping off to these people next week for sharpening. Should have done this a year ago. If you take care of your blades you won’t need any sharpening for several years, unless you run a shop for business.

Now, why don’t you want the local guys doing this? If they have the equipment to make every tooth the same height then that is a good choice because they are probably doing everything else right. Sharpening a Carbide is not even close to what sharpening a hollow-ground was 20 years ago.
