Hello, Dan here with DK LeSieur, we're a general contractor, Washougal, Washington. Today I've been asked to talk to y'all on how to clean a circular saw blade. The materials you'll need, of course, the saw blade, and a good, sturdy brush. Well, I have a few blades here, I got little ones here, and I got a big one. First off, we need saw blades. Okay, first thing to, second thing, never use water on your saw blades. Saw blades are a raw metal, it's a cutting tool, you get water on them, they will rust and pit. And, you know, when you have a seventy-five dollar blade here, and you use water on it and you rust it, you're going to be upset with yourself that you have to go buy a new one. Basically, you have a blade, I use a brush, kinds brush it off. Be careful 'cause your teeth are really sharp here. That's the simplest way. If you get some stuff on there, goo it up, maybe you're cutting the wrong material and you need to clean it, you can use a little bit of WD-40 and maybe a tiny bristle brush. This one's a little big, but get in there and clean it with a cleaning agent, but make sure that you completely dry your blade off if you put any kind of chemical. And remember, no water, water will rust it. I'm Dan, and that is how you clean a circular saw blade.
