« Part 2: Tearing it down, inspection, cleaning, and a clearance issue... Part 3 of The Unisaw Experience series Part 4: The Woodworking "devil" made me do it... »

Hi fellow sawdust creators,
In the pause during this week before I actually touch my Unisaw again on Saturday, I thought I would share my new blades that will soon be doing 10’s of thousands of revolutions and ripping, crosscutting and mitering their way to oblivion…

Introducing the four new additions to the “blade brigade”........

May I present “Lord Combination”, offering a variety of talents to his royal highness, ME

Please welcome “The Duke of Clean Cuts” offering chip-free service to his royal highness, ME

Here comes “The Marque of Rippage, from the region of thin-kerf”, offering less wood chips and narrower kerfs, for his royla highness, ME

Lastly, Sir Dado, knight from the royal order of widecuts, offering flat-bottomed grooving, for his royal highness, ME

I present to you the court of blades of greatness, fine woodworking and massive sawdust.

Thank you for visiting these honored members of my shop – you may resume your normal activities at this time.

That’s some Freud royalty. I’ve got the 50 on my wormdrive saw. It’s a friggin animal.

MrMeasureTwice, I have that 50 tooth blade. The new Irwin Marples 50th blade is definitely better. If the package is still sealed, I would recommend picking that up instead. Same price. I did a review comparing both side-by-side

@lumberjoe – thanks for the tip – it is still sealed, so totally returnable.

Did you do the comparison on your blog on LumberJocks?

I also picked up the Marples 24 tooth rip blade and the 80 tooth cross cut blade. I will be reviewing these soon
