Of course everyone enjoys cleaning the saw blades and getting the pitch off so we get a cleaner cut but it can be messy. I use CMT Formula 2050 Blade and Bit Cleaner and find it does a very good job. I also use a small nylon brush to help clean the gullets and any stubborn dirt after letting it soak for a few minutes. There's little to no odor and it's environmentally safe. The only thing I could find to lay the blades on was a few cheap plastic platters that have a raised edge. I only soak and clean 1 blade at a time so this is fine except that platter is fragile. Has anyone found a decent plastic round container that will hold at least 10" blades and maybe even the 12" (compound miter saw) blades that doesn't cost $30 just for the container? It would be great if there was a tight fitting cover so the solution that's left could be used again. Unless it's really dirty I find the cleaning solution will last a good while and clean quite a few blades.
