    Sharpening circular saw blades

    Does anyone have experience with getting tungsten tip saw blades sharpened in LOS? If so how easy is it to find someone to do a decent job of sharpening them? Thanks.

    I was hoping to find out too; normally I just throw them away

    maybe I should get oe of those diamond cut anything blades, then when I go through a nail there would be no loss of sharpness

    If you use diamond blade to cut timber then the diamonds will over heat & fall of
    Also the diamonds do not like steel.

    Circular saw blade sharpeners start at $60 USD
    Their use is not difficult but takes three operations to sharpen one blade.

    They do have them. The town nearest me has a guy that does it. If that's any help ? Try looking for a saw mill.

    Not to derail the thread but I use to reverse the saw blades to cut sheet metal. Works like a charm.

    ^^ Iv'e never done that, but hear it works very well.
    What we use in the work shop for sheet metal, are those 1mm thick cut off wheels you put on your small angle grinder, I have even cut 12mm plate with em.

    find the local sawmill and ask them who their sawdoctor is.
    they have to be sharpened with diamond tools an a proper machine- no hand tool will do the job properly (the angles have to be exactly correct.)
    they should also be able to replace broken tips, etc.
    even tungsten tipped blades get blunt rapidly when cutting hardwoods especially dry timber.

    The local machine shop in Hang Chat does all my blades and router bits. 2 baht per tooth.
