This DIY Band Saw Sharpening Jig Saves Your Blades (And Money)

Stop buying new band saw blades every time you hit a nail or a staple. You can sharpen your existing blade easily with this DIY band saw sharpening jig.

A Dremel with a small grinding wheel can be used to sharpen a band saw blade, but it’s a lot of manual effort. With this easy to build jig, you don’t need to remove the blade from the saw, and you can hit it at a consistent angle each time.

Use plain wood blocks attached to a piece of 1.27cm plywood to make the holder for your Dremel. Keep the tool in place using a small metal strip and then place the jig against a fence that will align it with the saw blade.
