30 minutes: Clean Blades

30 minutes? Clean your table saw blades. Remove that resin and gunk. They’ll cut better and burn less.

Put them in a plastic tub. Spray them with Simple Green. Wait 5 minutes, scrub them with a brass brush. Repeat if necessary. Dry carefully. Wipe lightly with a non-staining oil.

  • Time: 15 minutes
  • Cost: Plastic tub, brass brush (or scrub pad), Simple Green ($0.00 USD). What? You don’t keep Simple Green around your shop? Silly rabbit.
  • Satisfaction: Moderate (now), high (later).

You still have 15 minutes. Do another one.
