    Sharpening Band saw Blades

    I ran across this video, and thought it was interesting, so I though I would give it a try. I was really surprised how well the results turned out. I took an old dull blade that I was going to toss, and gave it a shot To my amazement, it cut like new. I will be doing it again for sure. I know some people don't have the time to do these things, but if you have time you should give it a try.
    The Video is annoying to watch because it moves around too much, but I found the information very helpful.
    I was curious if anyone here has tried this, and what your thoughts are?

    I'm supposed to respect my elders, but its getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

    Haven't tried it Charles, but for a 20 minute effort it's worth a shot. I've tried while the blade is still mounted on the saw, using a dremel and have had a margin of success.
