Woodworkers must be familiar with proper maintenance techniques and requirements for sawblades in order to save time and money. During use, blades become contaminated with pitch sap and other wood-based materials that cling to the teeth and surrounding areas of the blade body. These contaminants increase friction, which generates heat. Heat accelerates the dulling process of the blade, increasing the chances of binding or kickback.
