Since a carbide-tipped bandsaw blade will cost above and beyond $100, spending 33% of the expense of the blade to get it sharp and working like new again can seem OK.
Nonetheless, most of the bandsaw blades are not worth burning through cash to have honed. The bandsaw blade stock is created on mechanized gear, with the grate of the teeth shape, the solidifying of the cutting tips, and the setting of the teeth generally finished with the curl stock going through profoundly aligned assembling machines. The completed loop is many feet long and the blades are then sliced to length and welded. For a honing administration, setting ready for grating the number of teeth on a blade is work concentrated. What’s more, the insignificant arrangement of the teeth on the blade of a bandsaw would be difficult to recreate with a honing administration. It would be far-fetched that a honing administration could cause a honed bandsaw to perform like another substitution blade and the charge to hone would be almost equivalent to the substitution cost.
