    Preserving the quality of his blade saw.

    Interesting tip is to remove the pressure of the saw while it is still hot.
    Thereby preserves the steel molecules in its original form and hardness, we have a much longer time of use.
    I use this process for years, both in manual saw as my band saw at last in all the saws I have.

    Sorry my mistakes in english.

    Interesting, Hotz. Has it been your experience that your sawblades stay sharper or last much longer?

    I try to not let the blades heat up too much if I can while cutting metal. Slow speeds and thread tapping oil helps to cool the surface and keep the bimetal blades shaper for longer.

    For wood I don't worry about it, but I use a carbide tipped saw blade that can take a lot of heat.

    Yes! It has greater durability.
    The saw stretch and lose quality if they stay for a long time stretched.
    Best release the tension after work finish
