Glue Line Rip !

Glue Line Rip !

When Freud claims that this blade will give you flawless rips and glue joints, they are not boasting.I purchased this blade few months back but never got around using it until this week when I got tired cleaning the mess my jointer was making.Long story short, this put my jointer to shame. The cut is so smooth; you may have to scuff it up a bit before gluing.Well, I’m not the least bit surprised, Freud makes some of the longest lasting and sharpest router bits and saw blades around. it&...

Expensive Junk

Expensive Junk

193 days ago by colvinatch | 30 comments »

I bought this bit as part of a three bit set for $75.00 and had high expectations after reading about their revolutionary four blade cutting bits. I put this cove and bead bit in and after the first cut (which was smooth) one of the blades split and separated from the bit and buried itself into my router table fence. What is most troublesome of all is the fact that I communicated this to Freud with no response in over two weeks, not only does Freud have terrible quality control, now ad non-...

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

Freud Jointer knives = POOP

These blades are so dull, I couldn’t even cut my finger with these. I contacted Freud directly about it and all I received was “thats our blades thats how they come. If you don’t like it you should return them to where you bought them. We don’t get any complaints about our blades” Umm YES you do get complaints because I was complaining with him right then. The dull blades I am replacing are sharper than these brand new Freud blades and Freud has ZERO concer...

Not Bad Afterall

Not Bad Afterall

996 days ago by pintodeluxe | 27 comments »

Had blade marks after ripping 1.5” white oak. Even after taking a skim cut with featherboard and zero clearance insert with thin kerf splitter I still had blade marks. Not burning, just the sort of cut that reveals its imperfections when you hold it up to the light. My industrial full kerf combination blade sure makes glassy smooth cuts compared to this one. In fact I had to switch back to the Freud combination blade to make skim cuts on all boards. Too much work. This one is goi...

Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

Last week I received this saw blade from Rockler. This is my first “professional” blade, until now just used the blades that came with the machines I bought or some cheap blades I could get a local stores. In my last proyect I realized 2 things (using the dewalt blade that came with the saw) 1.- Big quantity of wood consumed by each cut2.- The finish was VERY poor I couldn’t glue the faces without sanding… The things that made me choose this blade: 1.- ...

Freud insert router bits

Freud insert router bits

This is a review of Freud insert router bits but also a review of these bits in general as there seems to be some re-branding of the tools going on. I have bits from Freud, Amana, CMT and Dimar, some with identical bodies. Regardless of manufacture, having one of these bits would be an important addition to any shop. You can achieve perfect glass smooth surfaces on any wood, even going completely against the grain. Fluffy, curly snowflakes of shavings will hang in the air while you work an...

WOW, what can I say. This is another pleasant surprise from Freud.In my search for a super thin kerf saw blade under 20. The Demo demon @ $15.00 although not designed for table saw and ripping gets my 5 star.Gives extremely clean cut with not too slow but steady feed rate and at 1/16 kerf, No waste and oh my, almost no dust. You can see the cut is practically glue ready.Since this is 7 ¼ blade and super thin, I don’t recommend using it on any stock thicker than 3/4 It may deflect but you do g...

Freud's Dado - Freud's Dodo

Freud's Dado - Freud's Dodo

It’s pretty safe to say I love Freud tooling. And I love it in spite of being trapped into using it.I should explain. We primarily run Freud tooling in our shop simply because my boss signed up to be an occasional demonstrator for them at hobbyist shows. His compensation for this task (and it is a task if you put yourself into it) is that he receives dealer discount on any order, always. It would be easy to dislike their stuff if I had no choice (as the tooling manager of a small ...
