blades and/or sharpener in the panama city area?
« on: January 12, 2013, 07:00:11 PM »
Hoping someone lives close and can help me out. My saw came with a few blades, rusty and only a few cut. I would like to buy a few blades so I can keep cutting! If anybody has a few I could buy and/or could sharpen my blades that would be great.

I don't know what you consider close. The blade manufactures will ship fairly cheap. It is difficult to sharpen just a few blades correctly unless you have the same size and type of blades as the person doing the sharpening.
Two LT70s, Nyle L200 kiln, 4 head planer, 30" double surface planer, Lucus dedicated slaber, Slabmizer, and enough rolling stock and chainsaws to keep it all running.

Cook's Saw up in Newton, Al. is probably closest.  They're actually just west of Dothan.  Good people there.  Worth visiting.

And, they're a sponsor.  Look just left of this post

I seconded that, go see cooks that is 1.5-2 hrs from you. I get my blades from them and got their blade sharpener , works great, built like a tank.

     I've been to Newton a couple of times to see the folks at Cooks.  I found it a worthwhile trip.  I'd call ahead to see if they have the blades you're looking for in stock first, though.  And no doubt having blades shipped from them to you would be pretty quick too.

Well I followed some of your advise and ordered from Cooks, they shipped them yesterday and they arrived this afternoon. I hope I can take one for a spin in some wood tomorrow! I feel certain they are going to cut better than the new, very rusty blades that came with my mill. I think I'll go to bed early so tomorrow will come faster.
