Just wondered if anyone had tried using a multitool with a tounge attachment and diamond file / diamond paper to sharpen a circular saw disk?

Not sure if anything else will touch the Tungsten Carbide.

the angle of the tooth etc is pretty critical like. my local (north shields) sharpening place charges 12p per tooth and £3.50 per replacement tooth. actually.... i need to swing by and pick the blades up that theyve just done for me.

you need accurate angles to sharpen a saw blade properly and an oscillating pad is hardly going to be easily to judge the angle on

:withstupid:

An inconsistently sharpened blade will produce a rough cut and may possibly suffer from wow and flutter, too, so more noisy as well.There's saving money, then there's being tight

12p a tooth is very good value - I'll have a look into that thanks.

ive just put in 5 or 6 blades, 2 of them needed a couple of teeth adding on. 2 of them were rather rusty and one had a lot of crap on it. they always come back as brand new.

think in total it was going to be about £40 ish including vat
thats a company called north shields grinding. unfortunately its on the dark side so it means a trip through the tunnel for me.. however im working in newcastle coming up so its only a short drive to north shields to pick em up
