A great dado set..

Since I purchased my rigid tablesaw I have been really trying to advance my knowledge of exactly what a TS can do and I figured joinery techniques was a good a place as any.. In in the middle of the design phase of creating mitre saw station and I think the doors will be mortise and tennon joinery anyway I have been practicing with this set.. The Pros:Really like the quality of the blades,chippers and spacers.. I like how easy it is for a beginner like me to align everything in the s...

I received this from my wife for Christmas. (Good wife huh?)It was ordered from Amazon.com and came via OnTrac in great condition.So far I am very pleased with the performance.I have crosscut and ripped several feet of Maple & Birch and I have no complaints.Very minimal burning when ripping. (It’s time to check my fence alignment too)Cross cuts in my sled were very clean.This is the best quality blade I have ever used. I should have bought one sooner.I replaced an older Freud Com...

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

Freud router bit broke into 3 pieces.

I used this 3/8” up spiral bit for over a year when making mortises for a gate (in redwood).This bit did not get used very much. Supposedly it is solid carbide.Recently I was routing slots for a jig in a medium dense wood using my router table.When I was nearly finished I heard a bang and discovered the bit broke into 3 pieces.These router bits are not cheap; over $50. I emailed Freud twice on from their website about thisand to find out if they warranty the bits. No response after 3...

A World of Difference from the Stock Blade

A World of Difference from the Stock Blade

06-07-2014 11:26 PM by jonah | 9 comments »

I mentioned this blade in my review of the Scheppach Track Saw. It gave me tearout-free cuts in pretty much everything I have tried with the track saw. Just look at the closeup of the two blades. On the left you have the stock blade. It is probably a $5 blade. On the right is the Freud. Much more carbide, much sharper carbide, and a much better cut. The only possibly negative of this blade is the price. At $45, it isn’t cheap, but it’s quite a bit less than Festool blades, a...

Usually in my old Rockwell/Delta table saw I use a combination blade. I do very little crosscutting in my table saw as it’s not new and doesn’t have a super fence on it. My main use of it is to cut my wood to width in the jointing/planing process of readying the wood to use. I own a nice sliding combo 12” Bosch miter saw that I do all of my crosscutting with. The combination of the two saws lets me get by pretty good. I tried a couple of rip blades in the past few years....

Don’t Confuse this with the previous posting on Freud Junk. This a different Lumberjock with his own Freud Junk story. It was funny logging on to find another member just posted about this. I guess I’m not alone in my recent sad experience with Freud. Let me start by saying that I own dozens of Freud router bits and several of their door making sets. I have used Freud products for years and have been completely satisfied with all the Freud products I have ever owned until no...

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 Thin Kerf Glue Line Rip blade (10")

Freud Thin Kerf Glue Line Rip blade (10")

I’ve been using this blade since last December. Please note: It’s badly in need of sharpening now but my review will reflect the blade as it was when new, since that seems only fair). This blade does indeed perform as advertised. I put it on a 1 3/4 HP table saw. It’s worked very well. It does leave a pretty much flawless finish on the ripped wood. It’s cutting performance is excellent, but it does bog down on some harder woods like oak and hard maple. On a...

Night and Day

Night and Day

Bought one of these at HD last night and changed out my Bosch 60T blade that came with my Bosch gcm12SD miter saw, and the difference is indeed night and day between the two. I was getting clean cuts with the stock blade, but it was burning the cuts regardless of how fast or slow I seemed to feed it. I read good reviews about other freud blades here, so I decided to give it a shot.Wow! absolutely effortless cuts. There is just no comparison to the stock blade. I can’t even hear it cutti...
