Inserted Tooth Source
« on: October 23, 2012, 02:29:27 PM »
I tried to search the forum, but had no luck.  Does anyone know of a good place to get parts for an inserted tooth head saw?  I have acquired a second blade and it is in need of bits and shanks.  I think it has in it now size "B"
Thanks
Charlie

I can't agree with chromes. Especially if you hand file.

I was going to ask about the hardened ones.  I use a Andrus Hand sharpener.  I imagine it will take much longer to sharpen the chrome ones. 

Jeff, would it make any difference in your opinion of the Chrome one if I were to purchase the Diamond Wheel they recommend for the carbide teath?

Honestly, l have always preferred standard bits due to the ease of bit maintenance. The hardened bits stay sharper longer in clean wood, but the same things that screw up a standard bit will screw up a chrome or destroy a carbide.

You can hand file chrome bits after you knock off the chrome face.  The Andrus won't do it.  You would need some sort of grinder.  After that, you could use the Andrus.  Chrome will cause the file to wear out quicker.

Ron,
this maybe a dumb question; but, if i knock the chrome face off does that not defeat the purpose of the hardened surface?

Your tooth does its cutting by the edges, not the face.  Although there isn't any chrome on the face, you still have chrome on the edge of the teeth.  If you're used to swaging your teeth, you won't be able to do that with chrome.

I went back to all steel teeth for awhile, but the quality of the steel has slipped quite a bit in the past few years, and I couldn't maintain the edge.  It was cost effective for me to go back to the chrome.  The extra cost was made up with a little less downtime in sharpening.

I quit sawing in late 2005, and was starting to notice the decline in quality of the bits a couple years before that. I'm sure I probably griped about it here somewhere. :D

They have a bunch of knowledgeable people at Menominee. Don't be afraid to ask advice from them on your given situation.
