Top Sawblade Sharpening related questions
What do saw blade sharpening services include?
Saw blade sharpening services include trimming, shaping, and re-sharpening saw blades. From powered saw to hand saw sharpening, specialists do many types of blade restoration services. Whether you’re a tradesman or DIY enthusiast, our Taskers are to help restore your tools.
To sharpen a saw blade, a Tasker would use tools; a flat file, a saw vice, clamps, a saw file, and a saw set. Saw sharpening services include trimming, shaping, setting, and sharpening the teeth. The condition of your blades will determine which methods your Tasker should do. Here’s an overview of standard sharpening processes.
Trimming the saw teeth
Constant use can alter the shape and height of the saw teeth. A neat rank of teeth becomes ragged over time. As a result, the shortened teeth no longer do any of the sawing. Trimming the teeth can restore a saw’s cutting performance. This method involves filing back and forth over the teeth to restore the top surface of every tooth.
Shaping the saw teeth
After trimming, the specialist treats the saw blade with a 3-sided file for even filing. A 3-sided file ensures each tooth receives 3 or 4 strokes. The specialist repeats this process to achieve a consistent shape and neat line across all the teeth.
Setting a saw
To set a saw, the specialist bends alternate teeth outwards to either side. This process enables the blade to make broader cuts. Setting a saw also prevents a blade from jamming. An experienced craftsman makes sure the offset is equal to both sides. Doing so prevents the saw from going off course toward the wider offset side. Usually, a Tasker would need a saw set to do this job.
Sharpening the blade
To avoid damaging the teeth, the specialist should do the sharpening after the setting. But depending on the state of the blade, the specialist may skip other steps and go straight to sharpening the saw. First, the saw blade is clamped in the vice for stability. Then, the Tasker runs the file through the gaps between the teeth.
The filing tool and filing angle are crucial to a correct sharpening process. Specify the type of your saw to ensure your Tasker brings the appropriate sharpening tool. Tools include hand files, handheld metal grinders, crank sharpeners, and grinding machines.
