I sell wood slices (tree cookies) and I just got a 14” miter saw with a 15” blade on it. It’s a red Diablo blade, and it keeps leaving horrible streaks of red paint on my slices.
Usually any paint on a saw blade will wear off with a few cuts and I just cut things that I will be sanding for the first uses until the paint wears off, but this one is painted all over, not just around the teeth, and the paint streaks just keep coming and coming. It actually seems as if it is melting off of the blade and onto the wood, because it has been pretty hard to sand off. It’s like the paint is soaking in to the wood.
Is there a safe way to remove the paint off of the blade? Mineral spirits? Some sort of solvent that won’t ruin the blade?
