Second Use - 13" blades
« on: October 06, 2006, 08:02:24 pm »
I just finished my second session sharpening 13" DeWalt blades.  It occurred to me that no where can I find which grit to use.  I have been doing the 220/1000 method.  Is 1000 good enough?  Presumably, if the sharpening has been done correctly there is nothing left to sharpen without a readjustment.  None of these edges exhibited nicks.  If they did I am sure there just would not be enough blade material to remove them.  Your hint about honing using the holder was brilliant!  Thanks.

I would use both 220 and 1000.
