At the beginning and the end of the board, it cuts deeper. Does this mean the blades are dull?

It usually means you are letting the boards lift slightly at the beginning and the end of the planing process, or you might be letting them enter too fast and push them too fast at the end. a dull blade will cause brown or black areas and smoke as you process them and it will take longer to run them through the planer ususally.

When cutting 7.5" laminate wood floor with 12" miter saw. When we cut, the very end of wood(1.25"at the same place on every piece). Does this mean blade is dull?


Hi Shaun:
Just a couple of things to try:
- Make sure the laminate is supported at both sides when cutting.
- Make sure the laminate is held firmly against the fence and deck when cutting.
- Do not "rush" the cut. Laminate is very hard and does not like to be hurried.
- Make sure that the correct blade (teeth) is being used.
- And yes, the blade has to be SHARP

My saw makes a loud noice while I'm cutting


I'm wondering what the noise is like. Is the noise only while you are cutting / under load? Is the blade smoking? What type of wood are you cutting?

Compressed Board? Probably dulling the blade, so after a few cuts, it starts to drag the stock. Try a fresh blade or moving the material to the other side of the cutter.. If you watch the gauges and pressures all look good, I can think of no other problem. I'm not a tech, just a long time user. If any air might be getting in, you would most likely see fluid spraying out.

My blades are a little dull will the blades still cut through a bolt?


You shouldn't really be using dull bolt cutters because it requires more force to cut through the metal which increases the likelyhood that you will get an injury. Yes you can use dull bolt cutters but you should always make sure that your blades are sharp before you use them.

I have dewalt 18 v circular saw i cut vinyl lattice once and used it on a 2x4 but it wouldnt cut it, started to cut then just stopped. is blade dull already? new saw.


a couple things to look at. Did the saw stop operating or was the blade not wanting to cut. Remove the battery and CAREFULLY feel the blade for dull or broken segments. If the blalde stopped check to make sure not a loose bolt holding it on. Did you reverse the blade for cutting the vinyl. Let me know more information and I will try and help

Check your blade latch is working properly. If you took your clipper apart and your blades are not cutting it is one of 2 things. Your blade drive is not assembled properly or your blade latch is not holding the blade on the clipper. If you took your blade apart, check the blade alignment. The cutter blade needs to be slightly behind the comb blade.

Does the blade go to the right if you place the fence on the opposite side of the blade? If so, then the teeth on one side of the blade are dull. The dull teeth beat into the wood, and the sharp teeth cut when the blade is deflected by the dull teeth, leading the cut further and further from the straight line of cutting. This happens when something dulls the blade, like a nail, a foreign object embedded in the wood like stone, or if you use the wrong blade for the work being done, i.e. using a crosscut blade for consistent rip sawing.
First, get a spare blade or two for the saw, don't depend only on one blade. Use a combination blade to get the best balance from ripping and crosscutting. Then for the dull blade: If it is a steel blade, replace it with a carbide blade - a few dollars more, but well worth the upgrade. If it is a carbide blade, get it sharpened, as they will also get dull, though you can't always see it. If it is a carbide blade, and teeth are broken on it, ask your sawyer (saw sharpener) to determine if it is worth replacing the teeth, or if it is less expensive to replace the blade.
A quality blade will last longer than the least expensive ones, as the materials are better machined, balanced, and finished. Hope this helps.

I am running a six inch blade width horizontal band saw in a sawmilling application, resawing flitches to thinner boards. Average depth of cut about eight inches. What blade life (swage set steel) should I...


This depends on the type of wood you are cutting. Hardwoods , like oak, will dull the blades faster and require a change after about 3 months if used daily 8x7 but you can get a longer cutting time IF the blades are carbide steel. You can add life to the saw teeth by keeping them clean and free of sap buildup too.
Specially when cutting pine.
