Folks I have a Hatachi CF75 3" Stellite Resaw Blade and the other day
I was cutting up some roughly 6" size hickory disks to use in my
smoker when the blade jammed and it now has a small kink in it.
Is there a way to remove this kink such as heating and shrinking or is
the blade a total loss. It still runs and cuts but obvioulsy makes a
slapping noise when the kinked section goes through the guides.
Thanks for the help.
Normally it's not cost effective to straighten/sharpen a hobbyist type
band saw blade. At the approximate cost of $135 for the blade you have
I'd start calling saw sharpening services in the area to see if they can
Thanks Jack for the input, my problem is that I do not think there is
any local saw sharpening services in my area but I will check around.
I live in a small town.
...For as much as one of those blades will cost you, I suspect that your
idea of "my area" will grow by several miles. I'm gonna guess that one
blade will set you back up to close to $150usd and for that knid of money,
I'll drive an hour to find a blade shop.
If you were to give us an idea of where you are, we might know somewhere to
send you to get your blade fixed up. Altho I will say that the outfit I go
to can do some great things with bandsaw blades, they are never quite
perfect, so for my little 14" machine, I tried it once and realized that it
just wasn't cost effective...but I can get a new blade for $25usd or so.
