    O/T Any use for old circular saw blades?

    I have about 20-30 old table saw blades. Anyone know a good use for them, other than selling them for scrap?

    Some custom knife makers use them for blades.

    If you have a friend with access to a water jet/laser cutter you can turn them into brake rotors or sprockets...

    Have an artist paint a country scene on it and sell it as art.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    The hardware store I work at has a program that offers a $5 trade in toward the purchase of a new saw blade if you bring in an old one, so long as it isn't missing any teeth. I'm sure we're not the only ones who do this.

    This is the one that was used to cut the lumber in my house--it's about 3 feet across.
    I painted it with blackboard slating and bolted it to the wall in the hallway.
    I use it as a my message board.

    Just bolt them to your big chainring as a badass chainguard.








    That would be badass, you have to admit!

    You'd get something worse than a chain ring tattoo if you leaned the wrong way though...

    As above, resharpen carbide blades. If you know a roofer or will be doing some yourself, run them backwards to use a circular saw for cutting long lines of asphalt shingles. Great for trimming ends of roofs.

    Not trivets. The metal will conduct the heat too well and could ruin your finish.

    that is bad ass.

    How about one for the front wheel? so squirrels get all chopped up before entering getting a chance to jam your wheel?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
