A World of Difference from the Stock Blade

A World of Difference from the Stock Blade

47 days ago 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...

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

Ridge Carbide Ultra TS2000-5/64" UTK version

55 days ago by wfedwar | 1 comment »

This review is for the 10-inch, 48-tooth, ultra thin kerf (5/64”) version of the TS2000 blade. I have used a number of different blades including cross cutting blades up to 96 tooth and ripping blades down to 24 tooth. Most are freud, some are dewalt,one delta, etc… This is my first Ridge Carbide blade. I got the 5/64” version because I am using a fairly underpowered Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I’ve always used thin kerf (3/32” or thereabout) with the sa...

I've tried a few blades but this one does it.

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....

A Good Value

A Good Value

This review is for the Diablo/Freud 10 inch, 40 tooth circular saw blade. Model number D1040X I got this at Home Depot for around $30 or so. My Freud blades needed sharpening and I needed to put something on my tablesaw. I was very pleasantly surprised by this blade. It rips almost as well as my Freud 30 tooth (thin kerf) ripping blade. It leaves a smooth finish when crosscutting. The blade stayed sharp as long as my Freud blades did. Which is unsurprising, considering it is actu...

Great for general construction!

Great for general construction!

I picked up this blade about 4 months ago while in the middle of a remodeling project. I have the el cheapo 12” sliding miter saw from HF and I still had the original blade on it that came with the saw, which is absolute junk. I had not really cut much on it and it was so dull that it was burning through things more than it was cutting! I could get it through a modern 2×4 with some effort but it was getting ridiculously dangerous to cut anything on it. The wall we were cutting ...

Harbor Freight Dado set

Harbor Freight Dado set

220 days ago by MrRon | 40 comments »

I’m certain the purists will condemn me for using the name “Harbor Freight” in connection with woodworking tools, but like it or not, here it is. I don’t use a dado blade very often, so I couldn’t justify $200+ sets like those from Forrest. But when I do need one, I went with the cheapest set I could find. The HF set is 8” and cuts dados up to 7/8”. The teeth are C2 carbide and number 22 teeth. I was impressed by the size of the carbide. They look lik...

Incredibly good blades.

Incredibly good blades.

270 days ago by b2rtch | 5 comments »

The set that I bought is not exactly the same than the one on the picture , as I have one carbide tipped blade in my set. I bought this set at HD well over one year ago to use with the Hf reciprocating saw that I review today also. I bought HF reciprocating saw blades in the past and IMO they are pure junk so I decided to buy better blades. I found this set at HD and at first I was hesitant to buy the set because the price was on the high side for me but I finally bought it and today I ...

Freud Thin Kerf Glue Line Rip blade (10")

Freud Thin Kerf Glue Line Rip blade (10")

293 days ago by Purrmaster | 13 comments »

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

336 days ago by mummykicks | 16 comments »

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...
