- Ridgid 10 In. x 50 Tooth Combination Saw Blade Model R1050C
- Brand: Ridgid | Category: Saw Blades
I just recently bought this blade after reading some of the reviews on the home depot website. I am very satisfied with it and think its an excellent choice for someone on a budget wanting a nice cutting blade. I havent used any of the high end blades such as the forrest woodworker2 but i would be mighty surprised if they cut that much better then this blade does. I tried it on red oak, pine, douglas fir, MDF, and particle board melamine and it left a super smooth cut in all of them with no tear out on both rip and crosscuts.
For $39.95 i think its a pretty good deal
i plan on getting one of ridgids 90 tooth blades for my miter saw when i get some extra cash
the following is from HDs website
