This blade is great for cutting box joints and dados. I prefer the 1/4 inch cut, the 3/8 inch is seems not as controlled (it is) but I still stick to 1/4. I tried this in a crosscut and a rip cut, both cuts were excellent. I was just too lazy to change my blade for 4 cuts. I believe that for the price $65 at Amazon it is the best bargain out there.A purist would probably use this set for dados or box joint cutting only, but I a true woodklutz ripped 24” that was as good as you could...

Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

1764 days ago by Pete_Jud | 11 comments »

I just ran 300 feet of 1.5 inch doug fir stair treads over a 3/4 inch Freud roundover bit on the router table to bullnose the work. I was very concerned about “tearout” as the old growth doug fir had a lot of tight knots in it. I had no tearout at all, and the I cut the bullnose in just 1 pass per side. The work is ready to install without any sanding. Great finnish. And almost no pitch buildup on the bit. This is the first Quadra-Cut bit that I have used, and I am impressed.

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

1535 days ago by CharlieD | 11 comments »

Woodcraft has this combination on sale at a good price. I have assembled everything but have yet to use the router. I did turn it on and was impressed with the soft start feature. The plunge mechanism is smooth and works well. So far I’m impressed with the workmanship of the table and fence (nice and heavy) and everything fit together well. The installation instructions could easily be improved but I got through it without too much angst. However, I was missing parts. The flat...

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

Fusion P410 is WICKED SHARP

Just completing the refurbishment of an older 3 HP Jet cabinet saw, I decided to indulge in the first “premium” blade I’ve ever owned. I read several threads discussing blades and was intrigued to find out what the Hi-ATB with the double sided grind was all about. Now that I have the power, I also wanted to get a non-thin kerf blade. This blade is “wicked sharp”... There are a lot of technical discussions already out there, so for my review, I decided to...

Freud LU87R010 10” thin kerf 24 tooth rip blade ROCKS!!!

Freud LU87R010 10” thin kerf 24 tooth rip blade ROCKS!!!

1883 days ago by klpete45 | 9 comments »

I bought this blade last year when I had a considerable quantity of rough-cut walnut to process. My saw at that time was a Ryobi BT3000. While it did manage to rip full 2”thick boards with a 40 tooth combo blade, it did struggle and left a lot of burn marks. So I did a little internet research and settled on the Freud blade since the manufacturer claimed “This blade gives new life to underpowered table saws…..”and the fact that I could get it online for under $50 made it hard to resist. I fre...

Above Table Adjustments Make This Router a Cut Above

Above Table Adjustments Make This Router a Cut Above

I have been using the Freud fixed base FT1700VCE for the past several years. It is my dedicated table router where it excells at easy bit changes and height adjustments all from above the table. No more bending over, kneeling, and craning to change bits under the table. It also offers a wide base opening to accomodate all large panel raising bits. Those features make it an ideal table router. At 13 amps or 2-1/4 hp, it has power to spare. Comparing it to my other routers, it cuts more...

Excellent all around blade

Excellent all around blade

1455 days ago by MedicKen | 9 comments »

Over the past year I have heard nothing but praise about the new Freud P410 blade. Freud has touted it as the best all around blade and even “out performs” the Forrest WWII. Not being one to buy into all the hype and jump on the band wagon I figured I would bide my time and wait until I found a new blade at a more affordable price. I do have a Forrest WWII and I paid a pretty penny for it, however it is a thin kerf blade. I got the thin kerf because at the time I had an under p...

I was making some candleholders and my Dado Blades were junk and chipping wood on every cut. Then my local Rockler Store sent me a coupon with 40% off any single item excluding Power Tools. Sweet!, I tell Blondie I’m off to Rockler to save some money… LOL…. The set is $199.00 so that’s 80 bucks off. She brainwashed my sometime ago to always look for sales. Another story sometime, LOL…. Man, I thought my Forrest Woodworker 2 Blade was something. This set is more than impressive! Th...

Freud Random Orbit Sanding Disks Go the Distance

Freud Random Orbit Sanding Disks Go the Distance

741 days ago by pintodeluxe | 9 comments »

Home Depot switched from Norton 3X to Freud abrasive products. I have tried the 120 grit and 150 grit 5” hook and loop disks, and they work very well. The ceramic blend of abrasives keeps cutting upwards of an hour of continuous sanding. I change them out of habbit, but they look like new and are still making sawdust. I didn’t have any disks come loose from either my Bosch or Dewalt sanders. The disks do not load up with dust like some brands. Cost is cheap – a 50 coun...
