If you set after sharpening, the tip of the tooth is not at a right angle to the blade body. I have noticed a big difference in the performance of the blade when setting after sharpening. The blade cuts like a dull blade. I always set first and then sharpen. Also you don't have to worry about the burr on the blade.

I have always sharpened then set the band.  But I don't like knocking the bur or scale or what ever off before setting.  If I change to setting first,  how many extra ths do i need to set the blade to allow for what the grinder is going to get?  ???  Tim

Banjo Picker.  I have set and then ground for years.  It saves a lot of time and aggravation.   I like a band that is set about 21 or 22 thousandths.  I set 22 and 23 thousandths and then sharpen.  There isn't as much that is taken off as you would think.  

I also like the flat chisel edge that I think is presented to the wood.

Setting with a single tooth woodmizer setter.  I could set one and half to two (13'2") blades for every one I sharpened.  That  means that I could take a break and drink coffee, with my feet propped up, every three sharpenings or so.  I also didn't rush the sharpening stone.  I guess it took about 3 seconds to face grind and run through the gullet and up the back of the next tooth.

Thanks for that link Tom.  I may have read that in the past, but it just didn't sink in. ;D  The blades I use tomorrow will get the set first  then sharpen.  That should cut better.   Tim

Sulfolk Machine says that their new blades don't perform as well as they do after the first sharpening due to the angle on the tooth, as per the reason listed above.

Got my dual tooth setter from Cook's a week and a half ago.   It sure is nice to be able to set a 18' blade in less than 4 minutes.  Accuracy has been within two thousandth's of each other.  I have been very pleased with the results.
