I thought of using a miter saw blade for a frame saw I looking to make. I know a bandsaw blade is often used but for straight cuts I’d prefer a deeper blade of 30mm+. I was looking at miter saw blades but can only find hardpoint ones but I want to be able to resharpen and shape the teeth to my requirements. Does anyone make resharpenable miter saw blades? If not, is the basic steel of these hardpoint blades suitable for making into saw blades after the hardpoint teeth have been removed or is it too soft? Any help or advice will be gratefully received. Thank you.
ECE has 600 mm and 700mm blades in both rip and crosscut versions that are sharpnable.
They are usually available from Highland Woodworking in the USA and Dieter Schmidt in Europe, among other places
I bought mine at Hardwicks in Seattle, but I haven’t been to their new location in Spokane. They do have an online presence. Drop them a line and see.
Some Ulmia blades are also not impulse hardened.
It appears ECE also markets impulse hardened blades made in Japan, so confirm which you are getting when you order.
