What blades to run on a Norwood lm 29
« on: February 05, 2018, 09:29:05 PM »
I have a lm 29 been using sabertooth blades with 3/4 tooth spacing, can I go to a 7/8 and what will the difference be ?

 The 7/8 will use a bit less power, the 3/4 will saw straighter in tough wood.   I use 3/4 most of the time.   Steve

Do you sharpen your blades and how often do you reset them ?

I sharpen my blades to 4 and reset when needed, most times the 2nd sharpening.  If cutting spruce or dried out pine I set heavy . The only blade I've found that cuts spruce good is a 3/4 pitch  4 and heavy set.   Steve

Welcome Maplehillfarms,

what are you sawing most of the time and how big?

Sounds to me that you need some 7/8" pitch 4deg blades.

I believe some 7/8 pitch   8 deg or 7 deg,  would do well,
