Well, I can be a lazy bastard sometimes. My WWII blade has been burning a
lot lately. I knew it was a bit gummed up, but I just didn't want to mess
with it. Yesterday, I got some nasty burn marks on the edges of some nice
mahogany for a haberdasher I'm building. I finally got the CMT orange stuff
out along with a brass brush. You wouldn't believe the crud on that blade.
It's shiny new looking now. First pass through that mahogany, it slid like
shit through a goose. And no burn marks. I gotta be less lazy in the
Next task: Sharpen those jointer blades that are leaving streak marks on
the wood. Might not have to sand so much......
I don't recommend using dull blades on anything but if you just have a
nick on otherwise sharp blades, (and you have room on the spindle) you
can slide one blade over a hair and it will clean up the marks from
the nicks in the other blades.
