Well, I said I’d take pictures, then totally forgot :p

The damage to the teeth being where it is (there are two teeth chipped on the side of the carbide, and 2 with significant dings on the top of the teeth), I think it’s likely necessary for those teeth to be replaced rather than sharpened. The blade is the Freud P410t, and has served me pretty well, so I’m looking at 2 options:

Contact a sharpening service and get an estimate to have it sharpened and the damaged teeth replaced (depending upon the cost, I’ll either get it repaired or buy a replacement), or

Buy a true cross-cut blade rather than another combination blade. As it is, I do take the time to swap out blades for ripping operations, so I’m interested to hear feedback on this one.
