theoretically I would think that the depth of cut is the only factor, however. the larger blades are also heavier which contributes to a more stable cutter, which would result in a cleaner cut – theoretically speaking.

another thing to consider is the rotational speed – I’m not sure of the numbers, but I think that a TS turns faster RPMs than a circ-saw, which might shorten the life of the circ-saw blade if used on a TS. but I really am too lazy to look up the RPMs for the machines right now.

all in all – I think it’s doable, but why not just use a good full size blade – there are some good ones out there that dont break the bank…
