How To Make a Saw Blade Sharpening Machine

Sharpening is the process of creating and improving a sharp edge of suitable shape on a tool or carry out designed for cutting operation. Honing is done by grinding away of material on the implement with a tough abrasive substance more difficult than the product of the implement. The substance on the honing surface area of honing machine must be more difficult than the material being honed. Diamond is really tough product, so diamond wheel is really reliable for sharpening of the tool.

Carbide saw blade is usually used for wood cutting operation. After long time of usage of carbide saw blade, it will be required to hone the tooth of saw blade.

The saw blade honing device is utilized to grinding and sharpening of carbide saw blades. There are numerous kinds of sharpening device is readily available in the market, but expense of this kinds of machine is very high. So I decided to make a saw blade honing device for my own. I have utilized 4" angle grinder device to make it. For honing of the saw blade, I have actually utilized 4" glass cutter blade. The feed of saw blade towards the grinding wheel is done by hand. This sharpening of tooth for blades with a size of 4" to 8" is possible in this saw blade sharpening device.

Material Used

Black & decker 4" angle mill:-.

It has 820W effective motor so grinding and cutting operation run efficiently, and 12000 rpm making grinding operation simple and quick. It has light weight style for long hour usage and also it has long life due to dust safeguarded ball bearings. This angle mill is included super protective guard for security versus burst wheel, and side deal with for optimum control over the tool.

Glass cutting blade:

Glass cutting blade is designed for use with angle grinder device, circular saw machine, radial arm saw and tile saws. I have used 4" glass cutter blade to hone the carbide saw blade.

Drawer slides (8" length):

Drawer slides are an essential element in a range of various types, allowing drawer units and other things to move in and out in a fluid motion. Drawer slides are readily available in various designs and lengths based on our requirement. It is used in simple desk drawers to sturdy tool storage drawers. I have used 8" long drawer slides to feed the saw blade towards the diamond glass cutter wheel.

Plywood sheet (18mm density):

I have utilized 18mm density plywood sheet to make a base plate and upper plate of saw blade honing maker. The dimension of base plate is 22" * 13" and upper plate is 8" * 8".

Wood block and clamps:

Wood block assistance is utilized to support the angle grinder device on the base plate and provide some height to the angle mill. I have actually used two clamps to fix the angle mill maker on the base plate.

Bolt and AB washer:

Bolt and AB washer is utilized to attach the carbide saw blade on upper plate of honing machine.


Screws are used for connect the drawer slides and wood block support on the base plate.

How to make:

Step 1:- base plate and upper plate.

Primary step is cutting the plywood sheet to make the base plate and upper plate. The base plate of 22" * 13" and upper plate of 8" * 8" cutting by table saw machine or circular saw device. It is simple to cut by table saw machine.

Step 2:- Attach the drawer slides and upper plate.
2nd action is to attach the drawer slides with base plate and upper plate. I have used 2 drawer slides to move the upper plate in forward instructions. It is move the upper plate in fluid motion and smoothly. Little screws are utilized to attach the drawer slides with base plate and upper plate.

Action 3:- Bolt and AB washer.

Third action is connect the bolt and AB washer to the upper plate, to connect the carbide saw blade on upper plate whose tooth are to be make sharp. So firstly drilling a hole to the upper plate and pass the bolt through this hole and after that connect the AB washer and carbide saw blade whose tooth are to be make sharp.

Step 4:- Fit the angle mill on base plate in set position.

Fourth and last step is fit the angle mill in its fixed position on base plate. Firstly connect the wood block on base plate for assistance the angle grinder, than after fit the angle grinder on the wooden block by utilize of two clamps. Ensure that it has not any type of movement in between the angle mill and base plate. Next action is connect, the glass cutting blade with an angle grinder. Now the saw blade sharpening machinery is prepared to utilize.


Its expense is really less than what offered in the market.

Easy to sharpen the saw blade using this device.

Simple style and simple to make.
