    Bandsaw blade sharpening services?

    Well Durham has not bandsaw resharpen service in town so I went to Raleigh yesterday. They don't sharpen BS blades at Ashecroft or Raleigh Saw.

    Circular blades are still being sharpened but I guess bandsaw blades are cheap enough to just get new blades?

    I have a couple Laguna blades that were expensive when I bought them and I am not going to discard the blades without a serious search.

    Questions:
    Does anybody know of a blade sharpening service in the Triangle area? In NC?

    What blade do you favor? Carbon or bi-metal? If I go for some new blades I guess I'll be making a choice.



    Let me know. Thanks

    Not in Durham area but there is a place in Union Grove that sharpens BS blades. They also have a pickup/delivery service to different areas------could be they deliver to someone in your area. Will look up contact info for you if interested. They do have a web site also.

    There is a guy just north of me (south of Burlington) I've used for circular blades and jointer/planer knives. He also sharpens BS blades, or at least he used to.

    I'll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don't confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.

    Re: Bandsaw blade sharpening services?

    Dan, I actually resharpened my blade using my Dremel while still installed on my Rikon 14" Bandsaw. Believe it or not, I think it cuts better then it did when new! Here's where I got the idea!

    Search for:

    Scott Smith has his band saw mill blades sharpened by Precision Saw. They do pick up and drop off at his place. Wouldn't hurt to give them a call, and see if they can sharpen your blades
