Saw blade-replace or sharpen?


I have a 12 inch blade that I have already sharpened once last year, and for my upcoming project, I need a sharp blade. Should I sharped it again, or replace. Price difference is about $30.00. Thanks for any thoughts on this.

It depends on the quality of the blade and the ability of the guy doing the sharpening, throw in travel time.

If my sharpening co. wasn't at the end of my street AND if they weren.t really good, I'd buy new and build it into the project cost.

I'd just get a new one. Buying a new tool or a new add-on just feels good to me. You may be able to get a better blade too than you did last year too.

I'd lean towards a new one also
...unless you've got a neighbor like Teetor's

Thanks. I did get a new one, and not the one I thought I was going to get. I picked up a Freud 12 inch 80 tooth blade, and it is sweet. Like a hot knife through butter.
