Porter-Cable Circular Saw FAQ

How to sharpen a circular saw blade?

For a competent sharpening of a circular saw, you will need a special machine for sharpening and a pendulum inclinometer. The correct sharpening of circular teeth with straight teeth is carried out along a plane surface located in front. For this purpose, the blade is installed in a mandrel located in a horizontal plane. Then, using the adjustment screws installed on the tool sharpening equipment, you need to set the angle for correct sharpening. The circular saw should move with the closest fit to the surface of the emery disk. The thickness of the layer grounded by an emery disk is controlled by the force of pressing the saw blade against the abrasive. After sharpening the first tooth, the saw blade is retracted from the emery stone, rearranged one step and the actions continue in the same way until the sharpening of all high-alloy material plates will be reached.
