This was on the forum I help manage and a couple of guys has tried it and said it worked great and better than a new blade.

That guy is a little more organized than I am. But that machine really sings after his treatment.

I have a 1 1/2 " blade that come with my saw and I have resharpened it. Best I can remember I used the hand held rotary grinder.

Hey, I did this. Very easy to do and it took about 45 minutes and the blade works very well. That would be a savings of somewhere around $20 buck for 45 minutes and double that if I can get two sharpening s.
