Gold Finish Circular Saws

Item #: Gold Finish Circular Saws

Once a saw has been heat treated to achieve sufficient hardness in the plate it's tempered in a lower temperature oven to carefully control that hardness, to make sure that the hardness is uniform throughout the saw, and to add toughness to the saw. All Simonds small diameter saws, regardless of the eventual finish, are carefully tempered in house to get optimum results and uniformity. Our gold finish saws go through all the same steps as our silver saws but after finish grinding they go through an additional tempering process at a moderate temperature to help stress-relieve the steel. Many filers appreciate the subtle change this makes in the way a saw holds level and tension, and in the uniform way it responds to the hammer and stretcher roll.

Simonds is a leading producer in the extremely demanding world of guided saws. The nature of modern production gangs and edgers requires saws that will hold up to feeds, speeds, and accuracy requirements that were almost un-imaginable a few years ago. To meet these demands Simonds has brought the process entirely in house. Most importantly we're staffed with genuine craftsmen dedicated to holding the highest standards of workmanship. Our plant is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment - from the lasers to the grinders to the heat treat ovens. We do our own heat treatment from start to finish, giving us a level of control that many competitors simply don't have. We're not bringing in heat-treated plate and finishing the saws, we're making the saws from the ground up. Our saws can be finish heat treated in a wide variety of ways designed to suit a mills specific needs.​
