Thanks for taking the time to put all this information out there!!!

My eyes tend to glaze over whenever I start to examine/compare saw blades. I’ve come to just trust what you say and go with whatever you recommend, that also happens to not stretch my budget too thin. Given your knowledge and expertise, I would be insane to do anything else!!!

Again, Thank you!!!

Thanks so much, Scott. I need a new blade for my chopsaw and thanks to you , I’m going to give one of those Irwin Marples a spin : )
Irwin Marples 1807370

Oh, wait…I just read that it has a 10-degree positive hook angle.
I believe that we’re supposed to use a negative hook design on chopsaws. True or false ?
My 10” Delta and my 12” Bosch both came with Negative Hook blades from the factory.
They are not sliders, just CMS , if that makes a difference : )
I’ll wait for your decision before ordering. Thanks.

Dusty – A low to negative hook is recommnded for a slider and RAS (anywhere from negative up to ~ 5° or so is good), but 10° to even 15° is fine for a regular CMS or chopsaw.

Good morning, Scott. The guy selling the Marples was asking $35 for the 80 tooth blade, or best offer.
I offered him $27.50 with free shipping and he accepted. The blade is now on its way to me : )
I also had a couple ebay bucks to spend , so the final cost was only $25.07 : )
Thank you so much and have a great weekend !!
Maybe someone else can bid lower and get a great deal as well.

Wow….$35 was a pretty solid deal. $25 shipped is terrific! (I think you got the last one he had…I just realized those were being sold in my town.) Enjoy!

He had 2 left after my order was processed.
I just checked on my order and the expected delivery date is between the 15th and the 19th…must be coming to Massachusetts on horseback !
Hopefully it will be sooner than later as I have a molding project to get done.

For some reason”my” Lowes never have a good variety of anything, it carries only one Irwin combo blades ( 50 teeth I think).
The people working in this Lowes told me that this is the smallest Lowes in the USA, that probably explains it
