Default Sharp planer blades

I've owned a Dewalt dw734 planer for a few years. I recently put new blades on it and they were as dull as the old ones. After taking the blades to the sharpening shop I was astonished. The blades were sharper than any factory blade. The blades are sold as disposable but fortunately I saved the old ones and now have 2 backup sharp sets. costs 24.00 USD

If you've got a good sharpening shop near you, kudos!! Amazing how many tools, blades, bits, etc. can have a very long extended life with proper sharpening. I used to have a fellow nearby like that but he retired and no one bought his business. :-(

Bill: I take mine to a saw mill near my home. They have a person that stops by every 2 weeks. They will do saw blades as well. You don't always have to look up sharpening service in the yellow pages. Smokindog

I use an industrial grinding service. Fortuneatly they are only a few miles from me. Business to business is their main focus but they also sharpen lawnmower blades for 5.00usd. My position on the blades is shame on Dewalt nuff said
