Subject: Re: Unisaw Blade returned ! 51 days later but, ITS NOT MINE
When I opened the plastic case I mailed, I found that the blade inside
wasn't the one I sent.
They told me over the phone they had replaced 4 of the carbide points..this
blade has had 7 replaced and there is still one chipped and another broken.
The surface of the blade on each side shows some cooked on greasy coating
which shows that the retention washer that had been holding this blade on
was approx 3.25" dia. Mine is about 2.25". There is also some name which
has been engraved onto the blade..now scratched out/'engraved 'over' and my
name has been engraved onto the blade in another area. This blade has
obviously been beat.
So my question: IF it had been properly sharpened (not with the broken (1)
and chipped(1) teeth as it was returned), would it make a difference if I
got my original blade back or not ?
BTW, I ripped a small piece of spruce 2X4 I had cut with the 'old' blade
found that the cut of the 'sharpened' blade was not appreciably smoother
than the old (3 yr w/o sharpening). I sent it in after building a home,
hoping to get a nice new blade to use for finer work: cabinets, VG fir
baseboards/ window/door casing etc. It seems this isnt going to be the
case. I certainly dont want to sent it back a third time..51 days..I'll
never see it (or my original) again...BAH !!
