Hi Charlie – What saw do you have?

I’ve never noticed a difference with or without stabilizer. With good quality blades spinning on a well tuned saw that’s running true, you really shouldn’t need a stabilizer…especially if the lumber is flat and straight. It’s a profitable item for vendors, so many companies suggest them…it’s more right than wrong, but I’d hold off if you don’t need them. If you’ve got an obvious problem, the stabilizers can help, but note that they’re more of bandaid than a cure for another issue that should be resolved.
