  • Free blades or a Random Act of Kindness

    I have a bundle of blades to give away. This is a mishmash of what I think are Flying Dutchman blades. Some of them have a light coating of surface rust. Many different styles, spirals, skips, reverse and etc.

    Well over a hundred blades I am guessing. They fit in a 5/8" ID tube with a little room to spare and weigh 1.94 ounces to help you decide how many blades there are. No I am not going to count them.

    I would like them to go to someone that is in need rather than to someone with a shop full of tools and everything they need. It does not even have to be for the person that contacts me. If you know someone that fits the ticket I will send them to you to give to that person.

    I am tired of sorting through these blades looking for what I want at the moment. Yes, I am that lazy.

        I was at a restaurant one day having lunch. When I went to pay the bill the waitress told me it was taken care of. Someone else there had paid for it! It made my day and more.
        Thank you for making some one else's day! Merry Christmas.

          I paid for a couple of Sheriffs deputy's lunch and told the waitress not to tell them who did it. It is fun to watch the reactions when I do that. They stood there for five minutes looking out the door to see if it was someone they knew. FUN FUN. They deserve it, rough job.
          I have plenty of blades so I don't want to put a bid for them but there is a retired and handicapped individual living in Cave Junction who would love to sort them out. A tip to help sort, get a folder of Mikes FD blades and sort them according to teeth. After that get a caliper and measure and before you know it, it is all done. Good Luck and Merry Christmas

            I found it impossible to decide who got the blades. So I put all the names in a box and had the neighbor kid make the draw.

            Thanks for the numerous responses.

                    At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                    The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                    Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
