This jig might help those who sharpen their blades a lot. I made this jig out of necessity. Please watch the full youtube video below to see how it works.

One of the best designs I’ve seen to sharpen your own bandsaw blades. It looks like it works well, I might have to try and make one for myself. Thanks for the idea. Congrats on your DT3

I don’t sharpen the blades often, but once in awhile it is necessary. Good plan!

Brilliant design—probably the best DIY jig I have seen. I was just thinking that some of my blades need sharpening but have put it off because it is such a pain to do by hand. I might have to make one like this myself.

Excellent design. Any tips on building one for myself? Thanks for posting.
