To get best accuracy when sharpening a carbide tipped saw blade on the AV-40 carbide saw blade sharpening machine is to use the roundness gauge. After you are through face-grinding the carbide teeth, set up to top-grind the teeth. Use the roundness gauge to check the heights of the carbide teeth to see if the alternate bevel tips are the same height. If the left cutter teeth are taller than the right cutter teeth, lightly, sharpen the right cutter teeth first.
After you have finished sharpening the right cutter teeth, the left cutter teeth will now be taller. Now sharpen the left cutter teeth with a heavier grind to get the left and right cutter teeth to have the same reading on the roundness gauge. The blade will now be perfectly in balance with all the carbide teeth doing equal amounts of cutting. With the AV-40 carbide saw blade sharpening machine, you have the control to perfectly balance every saw blade that will come into your shop ensuring the best results for your customers. A lot of automatic sharpening machines will leave that same saw blade out of balance.
