What You'll Need
Sharpening tool

It is important that you are able to know how to keep your chop saw blades sharpened. If these blades are not properly maintained then they will end up not lasting as long. Whenever a blade is not sharp enough it will end up making the entire device work harder which will cause it to wear out faster.

Step 1 – Using Sawdust

The first thing that you are going to have to do is get sawdust and put it around your blade. Make sure that you do this first as it will make the sharpening go a lot smoother. It will also help it to be a lot more effective whenever you do it.

Step 2 – Sharpen

You will now need to get your sharpening tool put up against the tip of your blade. The blade as well as the tool will need to form a cross. Your tool needs to be run along the edge of your blade. Make sure that you take the time to pass over each of the pieces of the blade.

Step 3 – Repeat

You will need to sharpen the blade regularly to make sure that it is kept in good shape.
