It seems like most people throw away a band saw blade once it dulls. Odd, when it's so easy to sharpen. I'll show you how.

There are basically two different tooth patterns on woodworking blades, and they can both be given new life simply by sharpening like a rip saw. Arguably the teeth of a hook tooth blade could be sharpened to keep their original shape, but I find this method gives good results and is simple and quick.

The simple aids I demonstrate make the process quick and easy.
