This Christmas Santa was a nice guy and got me a saw blade sharpener.
I have completed cleaning and sharpening all of the 36 blades(those paneling blades take a lot of patience)
4 of my blades have missing carbide tips,3 of them between 3-4 teeth,the last one( my formerly best blade) has all the teeth gone(and now needs dentures.lol)
Is an Oldham blade with all the tips missing worth getting them replaced or just throw it out(sniff,sniff)If it IS worth the repairs,where can it be sent (or at least priced) to be repaired?
Explanation of this travesty…We use mostly recovered wood from old barns/out buildings etc.The wood has an interesting trait,,LARGE HAIRY A** NAILS!Now we do have metal detectors,but trying to teach father how to use them on a regular basis,,well you know ‘old dogs’....etc. ‘nuff about that.
The other injured blades have been fixed by the sharpener,but the 4 other damaged ones,well I hate to let go of ANY tool.
