Blade tips hard to sharpen.

Does any one else seem to have problems getting the blade to sharpen at the very end of the blade wher most of the wear is. It almost tempting to turn the blade over on the back side and touch it up to get the desired results. Or is it operator inexperience?

Hello,

The tip is of course the most important part of the blade, since it does the majority of the cutting.

If the tip has become rounded from wear, it needs to be returned to a 90 degree angle tip. On some blades that are very worn this can take a bit of grinding.

As you are sharpening move the blade back and fourth against the grinding wheel. You simply do the same at the tip making shorter passes (if you are concentrating on a very worn tip). Be sure to have a good even sound and even stream of sparks while grindings. You should not hear any chattering noises, this indicates that you are not holding the blade flat against the work table or simply not holding the blade solidly.

If you are using HIGH LIFT BLADES and the blade is a bit used you may want to consider using the optional extended work table, to assist you in sharpening those blades.

If you have any other questions or if i have not totally answered your questions please call 800-328-1110, and we can review your situation further to make sure you get everything out of your MAG-9000.

Thank you,

ALSO NOTE:

If there are burrs on the underside of the blade, it will be easier to sharpen it if the burrs are first removed. The underside of the blade needs to be flat and match the work table so that you can easily slide it against the work table.

Thank you,
