I’ve been woodworking for sometime now. And I am kind of embarrassed to ask this question. How do you know when it is time to replace a saw blade?

When you clean it but it doesn’t cut any better, then you go to have it sharpened but it doesn’t have enough carbide left.

buy 20 like me and use a different one everyday and you never have to sharpen them, when they get harder and harder to push then you know. I just had a WW2 sharpened the other day and it was no effort to push in 5/4 red oak I bought it off Ebay and it took effort to push, when I used it, now it cuts like brand new, no effort
