Topic tags/keywords: camellia blades maintenance

Is there any reason not to use Camellia Oil on table saw blades? Happen to have some handy. I use for hand tools but never seen folks mention it for protecting power tool blades.

Whay say you?

Does it make the slippery to handle?

That’s the first I’ve heard of Camelliia oil.

Very good point Knot. If I did do it then sounds like a good idea to do the carbide only.

Cleaning saw blades tonight and am reminded how much I hate cleaning TS saw blades. Wondering if I can make the process less painful with coating it in something. Boeshield came to mind, but don’t have any on hand right now. That and doing more often.

Ron, I came across it a couple years ago from this reviewer on Amazon. His reviews are highly recommended. I learned a lot from them.

I use a cover from a 5 gallon pail, spray both sides of the teeth with any household cleaner that’s around (409, LA’s Totally Awesome, Greased Lightning, etc), hit the teeth with a stiff brass or nylon brush, rinse with water, and wipe it dry. Done in 4 or 5 minutes from start to finish. If you keep them clean, they’re easier to clean.

Great tip! I knew that 5gal top would come in handy for something. Also, thx for the heads up on the cleaner.
