After replacing the blade on my tablesaw, I promptly made the mistake of running some construction grade 2×12’s through it. To say that they gummed up the blade would be an understatement. I took the gummed up blade off and set it to the side for a few weeks until I had time to find a cleaner to remove the sap. Online reviews led me to Trend Tool & Bit Cleaner. Unlike some other cleaners, it is non toxic and biodegradable, which naturally causes one to question how well it can actually work. I bought two bottles of the cleaner assuming that I would need to soak the blade in it. However, with just a few sprays of the cleaner on the blade and letting it sit for 5 minutes, the sap easily wiped off with a paper towel. I used a tooth brush to clean out the gullets and the front faces of the carbide teeth. No scrubbing was needed and the tooth brush very easily wiped away the sap. All in all, it took me 10 minutes to clean the blade including soak time. I highly recommend this product for cleaning residue from sawblades and other woodworking cutting tools.
