Nothing can beat the Freud glue line blades. or their other blades for that matter in price performance and length of time they stay sharp..

This blade really is amazing I made cutting boards for Christmas presents, I don’t have a jointer so I used this blade and got amazing results.

Sharp is hard to beat. Last year I had my two combo blades sharpened. I just put the second one on this week. It is like night and day. We could all do ourselves a favor by keeping our stuff sharp.

I bought this blade 6 months ago and I agree that it is one of the nicest blades that I have bought.
It leaves a rounded top on the cut, so if you are trying to do a thin dado with multiple slices you will have to consider that.

Thanks for the review. I have used Freud’s 24 and 50 tooth blades with success. I will have to give this one a try.

It’s worth noting that Freud recommends this for 3/4” max stock. I use it for 1”, but switch to my 24 tooth for thicker.

I love em too. Got 3, one 40 tooth combo and 2 resharpened 60 tooth crosscut blades. Great results when you use a clean and sharp blade!
Have one WWII, and 1 ridge smooth bottom cut blades. Prefer the Freud’s for all but rabbet cutting.

It’s a good blade. I’ve got one installed in my table saw right now. It really does make a nice, clean cut.

I’m glad your experience with it matches mine, I’d hate to steer anyone wrong.

I’ve had that blade for about a year. Just great. I wish I had bought one years ago.

Jerry,

My Freud experiences match yours. I put a Freud blade on my POS HF table saw and it changed everything! That old table saw bit the dust and went to a far nicer contractor saw. Now those Freud blades are even better. ;) I really like them and I picked up a new blade here and there during the monthly sales at Wood crafters or Rockler. Eventually I started to scorch the maple. A quick cleanup on the blades worked nicely.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

Oddly, I can’t find this blade on Freud’s website anymore. I wonder if they’ve discontinued it.
