I have a 2” wide bandsaw blade that was stellite tipped with no set, and now after repeated sharpening there’s no stellite left on the blade. Is it possible to add/put set on the blade to continue using it? It would really be waste to throw it out! And re welding teeth on it would cost more than a new blade :(
Also, Does anyone have any plans to make a tooth-setter for a bandsaw blade?

Any help, and/or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

ward63

Handsaw tooth setter ?...and plenty of patience. Being heat treated they may just snap off though.

Handsaw tooth setter ? http://www.cutterschoice.com/cgi-bin/store/cutters.cgi?show_details=2572&s=popup&cur=usd
Doesn’t look so difficult to make…..easier said than done but I’ll give it a try.
Being heat treated they may just snap off though. It can’t hurt to try
“Bite the bullet” That’s inevitable :) but a good idea to cut it up for handsaws.

Thanks for all the help and advice.
