High Speed Steel (HSS) Saw Blade Sharpening

Pat Mooney Saws HSS customers aren’t just interested in receiving a sharp blade back; they’re interested in getting the right blade from the start. When a blade breaks or becomes too small to sharpen, they want to make sure their next blade will perform.

We work with manufacturers using all kinds of HSS machines including:
Rattunde high production systems for sawing tubes, rods, and profiles
Hydromat rotary transfer machines
Buffoli transfer machines
Bewo cutting systems
Sinico transfer machines
Soco cold saws for tube and bar cutting
BLM saw cutting systems
Scotchman, Baleigh, and other manual and semi-automatic saws
Any custom fabricated saw that uses an HSS blade

Our transparent pricing for High Speed Steel (HSS) regrinding and mail-in blade sharpening services depends on three factors:

  1. The size of your blade
  2. The time it spends on our machines
  3. Whether your blade is within runout tolerance


Each blade is individually inspected and logged into our system by trained staff.
A secondary inspection where blades that are either too small or beyond repair are removed from your order to avoid unnecessary billing.
Cleaning to remove material build-up that naturally occurs during cutting. This ensures nothing is between the saw blade and the grinding wheel when it’s time to sharpen the blade.
When requested, we measure the runout (straightness) and hammer the blade back into the proper specification (half the diameter of the blade).
Diameter measured to ensure the robotic-assisted machines haven’t removed too much or too little material during the sharpening process.
Saw blades are then loaded onto one of our 4 Loroch machines that can hold up to 500 blades at a time. These machines can run “lights-out”, which means your blades get finished quicker.
Upon removal from the machine, they are visually inspected again by our trained staff and waxed in our signature “Pat Mooney Blue” to protect both the saw blade and the people handling the sharpened blade. They are then carefully packaged and shipped back to you via UPS.


There are four key measurements to determine the kind of saw blade you’re using, they are:


The measurements of your saw blade might look like:

Diameter x Kerf x Bore x Teeth
160 x 1.2 x 32 x 60T
166 x 1.2 x 32 x 80T
250 x 2.0 x 40 x 80T
250 x 2.5 x 40 x 60T
300 x 2.0 x 40 x 100T
350 x 2.0 x 40 x 120T
350 x 2.5 x 40 x 300T
Once we know these measurements, we then use your application (what you’re cutting) to determine the appropriate hook angle, rake angle, and profile of the teeth, including:
Mild Steel “C” grind Triple chip (18/8)
“BW” or Alternating top bevel grind for thin-walled applications
Notch grind up to 0.25mm for
Stainless grind
Aluminum grind
Every new HSS blade begins as a blank, ready to be toothed up and optimized for your needs. We work with the top manufacturers across the world to stock popular blade diameters like:
160mm (6.2”)
166mm (6.5”)
250mm (9.8”)
275mm (10.8”)
300mm (11.8”)
315mm (12.4”)
350mm (13.7”)
400mm (15.7”)
450mm (17.7”)
550mm (21.7”)

Pat Mooney Saws has always been a family business, and we take pride in helping manufacturers of all sizes keep their saw blades in the best condition.
