Oscillating blade sharpener?

My cabinet saw blade needs to last just a little bit longer. Do you think I could get by if I use my oscillating tool's diamond blade to touich it up?

this would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
if only new layers hadn't been added....

  i think you will be buying a new blade very quickly if you do. that is not where you want to learn!! have it sharpened by a pro with all the tooling and experience required

Re: Oscillating blade sharpener?

Even if you had a robot-like ability to hold the oscillating tool at the proper angle for each saw tooth the diamond grit on one of those is way too coarse for a carbide saw. Carbide requires a very fine grit diamond wheel to do the job right. Coarse diamond grits will leave a sawtooth like edge on the carbide. This is bad for your chisels and even worse for carbide because carbide is very brittle and its edges will break off (dull) very quickly.
