I bought a 10” Woodworker II 40 tooth blade maybe 10ish years ago. Thought about getting it sharpened, but never got around to it. It still cut very well, or so I thought. But I bought a new one and installed it and made my first cuts today. Holy Cow! It went through 2×12 pine and Oak like a hot life through butter. The difference between the dull one (I didn’t know it was that dull) and the new one is shocking. Shoulda had the old one sharpened years ago. It goes in the mail tomorrow.

I hope you don’t wait as long as I did.

Small world. I took a similar path, however I did realize that the WW II had become dull. Being too lazy to send it off, I went through a couple of Freuds. They’re OK, but not great. Then I got a killer deal on a WW II and ordered it. Like you, I’d forgotten what a new one is like to use. Just cuts like butter.

And, like you, my old dull WW II is going out for sharpening as soon as I get off my lazy butt to send it.
