Default Old circular saw blades

Didn't I see a discussion here some months ago about a recycling service for
old circular saw blades? I'm looking for the best way to get rid of some of
these old blades (and no, they're *not* worth sharpening; most of them were
"thrown in" with the RAS I bought on Craig's List this past year).

Concerning sharpening, how do you know they're not worth it? Do you have
a good sharpening service near you?

I do--Standard Saw Works in downtown Oakland. Love the place; they've
been there since forever (1920-something). Don't charge very much and do
an excellent job on both steel and carbide blades.

So far as recycling goes, any scrap metal dealer should be happy to take
them (but they won't give you anything for them).

.... old circular saw blades? *I'm looking for the best way to get rid of some of these old blades ...


Do you know anyone who does blacksmithing? They might take them ---
I've seen some nice knives made from saw blades.

Paint pictures on them: A fish, dog, guail, woodland scene, etc. It
doesn't have to be perfect. Hang them in your shop. Got an old rust
hand saw, cross-cut saw, do the same. Old wooden shingles or old
slate shingles work, too. If you can't paint, get your kids to paint
on them. Kids like painting flowers and are easy to paint.

I just store them in a box near the GBOC. I'm sure they will prove
useful someday....

Make tacky pukey duck clocks out of them.

Guail? Are those small forest birds from Guam?

Sorry, Sonny, but painting old saw blades is a cardinal sin. It's
almost as bad as shudder shopping at Searz!

See my last post, WeeGee.

P.S: Did you ever make it -out- of California? Politics and smog
notwithstanding, it's a beautiful and scenic state with many wonders
to explore. You'll have to come back with Marilyn on your next winter
vacation to see more of it.

LOL. I missed that typo

I wasn't aware of some taboo in that regard. What's the reasoning for
not doing so?

Oh, I'm pretty sure I know a POS blade when I see one. Do the brand names
"Vermont American" or "Credo" mean anything to you? Probably the best blade in
the bunch is a Delta Sidekick, and I'm not likely to spend the $10 or $15 it
would cost to sharpen $20 blade.

Do you have a good sharpening service near you?


Yes I do, but I can't remember the name of the company. It's actually a
service offered by my local Woodcraft (Austin), and the sharpening company
comes into town once a week to pick up the blades, then returns them the next
week. My understanding is the company is somehow affiliated with Forrest, and
they do a wonderful job on my "Woodworker" blades.
