POROSAURUS® saws can be sharpened on any workshop disk sharpener, including DIY. For successful sharpening, adhere to the principles described on this web site.
The sharpening disk must 10 mm thick. This is the only possible thickness.
The outside diameter of the sharpening disk and the diameter of the centric hole of the disk is optional according to the type of sharpener.
Example of the sharpening disk
Choose the outside diameter of the disk according to the type of sharpener. The outside diameter of the sharpening disk must be bigger than the profile of the body of the sharpener.
When sharpening the teeth of the saw blade must be far enough away from the body of the sharpener.
When using a sharpener with two sharpening disks, the 10 mm thick sharpening disks must have a larger outside diameter.
Choose the clamping hole of the disk according to the diameter of the shaft of your sharpener or use a reducer. (Reducers can be purchased at sellers of sharpening disks.)
The face of the sharpening disk must be rounded with a dressing stone for the radius R5.
Radius R5 corresponds to the rounding on the teeth of the saw. It is enough to copy it.
Sharpening disk, reducer of the centric hole, dressing stone for creating the radius.
Where the shaped tooth is in contact with the sharpening disk, the saw must be supported from the bottom.
Most sharpeners have a support from the manufacturer.
For correct and safe sharpening, the saw blade must always be directed exactly to the centre of the sharpening disk.
Never sharpen the saw above the horizontal axis of the disk’s centre.
Either the radius between the cutting pins, as well as semi-pin gaps are shaped.
During sharpening we use for each tooth the same down-pressure to keep the plane of the tooth.
The saw is shaped as soon as the pins on double-teeth are renewed.
Attention! During sharpening and handling the sharpener, observe the principles of work safety.
One of conditions for easy cutting with the saw is spring set or saw setting which means alternate bending teeth to one side and then the other side of the saw. The object is to increase the cutting gap. If the gap is greater than the thickness of the body of the saw, there is no wall friction of the cut material. Otherwise, the friction decreases the fluency and increases the effort needed for cutting.
The spring set is not carried out after each sharpening, but only when necessary. It means when after being sharpened several times the saw does not create a sufficient cutting gap for easy movement of the saw.
Example of the whole process of saw setting can be watched on video.
The saw is clamped into the catcher and only the teeth above the jaws of the clamp are moved. By gradually shifting of the saw in the catcher gradually sharpen all the teeth.
For easy teeth sharpening we recommend using the sharpening lever supplied by the manufacturer of POROSAURUS® saws. This lever allows teeth to be sharpened quickly and exactly thanks to adjusted stop.
If you decide to sharpen the teeth in another way without using the original sharpening lever, make sure the edge through which to bend the tooth is not sharp and is sufficiently rounded. If not, the teeth hardened at a high temperature may break.
The recommended saw setting for a POROSAURUS® saw is 0.8 mm from the side area of the saw blade.
