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

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...

Great Thin Kerf Bulk Ripper

The Freud LU87R010 is a 10” 24 tooth thin kerf (TK) ripping blade that features a red “Permashield” coating for reduced friction and corrosion resistance, laser cut anti-vibration/anti-noise expansion slots, flat top ground teeth (FTG) for efficient material removal, and an aggressive 20 degree hook angle for a fast feed rate. The LU87 is the TK counterpart to the LM72R010, and is part of Freud’s “Industrial” series. Rip blades are designed to make fast ...

Just got this in the mail. Haven’t had a chance to use it yet. I wanted to get this up before the Woodcraft sale went away. $99 with free shipping. This is my second router, my first is a Black and Decker plunge router. This router appears to be quality built. Smooth base adjustment with two different style adjustment knobs that can be switched. Both 1/4” and 1/2” collets. Adjustable speed from 10,000-23,000 RPM. Also comes with a nice case, which is a huge bonus to...

Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

Freud Quadra-Cut Roundover Bit "Wow"

06-18-2009 06:29 AM 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 SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

Freud SD606 Dado set - Tradeoffs

01-07-2010 03:40 PM by richgreer | 8 comments »

This dado set is the 6 inch version of Freud’s dial-a-width model. There are several things I like about it but, as is often the case, there are trade-offs. The dial-a-width concept means that you do not need any shims. The outer cutter has a mechanism that, effectively, causes the width of that cutter to expand up to 7/64 of an inch in increments of 1/256 of an inch. Using the dial-a-width mechanism in lieu of shims is very convenient. Me and those shims never got along very well....

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

Freud RTS5300 Router & Router Table Kit

02-01-2010 11:09 PM 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...
