    Its on the saw, but I will take a pic tomorrow and post. To my mind, the saw cuts better than new. They had it pack in a box with some sort of blue elastic protector on the tips. I am sure thankful you posted about W.D.Quinn, and who would have thought they would be on the way to my Dr appointment. Thanks

    Blade looks good, geezer! Was that evolution blade 66 or 72 tooth? Looks like a 72.

    I myself just picked two new blades.

    Diablo 90-tooth TCG-tips 14" blade off Amazon for about $90. Works real nice. This will be my go-to blade as I don't use thicker than " steel very often (if I do, I use the plasma cutter).




    The other one I just got is a Tomax 72-tooth 14" blade, also off Amazon, for $61 shipped (it had a $3 coupon ). Figured what the heck, should be ok for a hobbyist. Indeed it is pretty good, runs smooth and true, has a TCG on the teeth just like the diablo. I don't expect for it to last super duper long as the carbide teeth likely aren't commercial grade, but for hobbyist type stuff, it should serve well as a back-up blade to my Diablo 90-tooth (for when I get them re-sharpened), which I plan to order a couple more of.






    I've cut 1/8" thick flat bar (standing up vertically of course) with both and I'm please with how they run. I've been making sure to use wax lubricant whenever I do cuts, so hopefully that habit that I'm forcing unto myself will let these blades last even longer. I just bought some Stick Kut wax lubricant since I'm almost out of the tiny Blair rotabroach stick lube, so here's to hopefully lots of smooth cuts.

    Sending in more blades to get fixed sharpened.





    Accidentally dropped and chipped a couple teeth on the Tomax and the Evo multi-material blade that I already had sharpened (it is relegated only for chopping up oak firewood). The other Evo blade was just a spare so it's just getting sharpened.

    Got the blades back from W.D. Quinn. As before, excellent work.




    Two teeth that were replaced on the 72-tooth Tomax blade




    Nice job on the Evo multi-material blade




    Three sharpenings, three teeth replacement, one was 'hammered and tensioned'. $65 + ~$25 shipping.

    Does having the blades sharpened decrease the amount of quality cuts the blades make? Does sharpening change the cut curf width?

    I don't think the kerf width is affected as the carbide tips are the same width. As to the number of quality cuts, I wouldn't be able to answer that without sufficient data. At first glance I don't see how the number of quality cuts could be affected, unless the carbide grain was not uniform to begin with.

    Good Info. A buddy of mine is a Rep for Evolution so I have several of their saws. A regular chop saw and a slide saw. He gets tired of me mooching blades off him so I'll send in a few to Quinn and have them re-worked.

    The prices for their services are very reasonable. $25 minimum per order now, so unless it has less than 82 tips to sharpen, it should cross the threshold on even 1 blade.
