And I,m only on my 2# CBN wheel.
I'm happy with the set up.

Well I was trying to milk a blade to finish up the last log for a customer but got down to the last 2 boards & it just wouldn't cut anymore. I switched to a new blade & on the last board I hit my post. It ripped the typos off all the teeth. I finished up the job with a second new blade.

I decided that was a good blade to take a shot at sharpening. I'm a believer now & agree that the resharpened blade cuts better then the new one after using them soccer by side. I realize it loses set & will get to the point it won't cut but so far I'm going to try it for a while.

Please excuse my typing. I don't do well at catching auto correct.

My drag sharpener is 1995 vintage and I used to save all my blades for winter and then sharpen/set, or in my case set/sharpen.
Now i am a snowbird and have gone very happily with resharp.
I despise the whole sharpening process.
