Review of TS2000 full kerf 40-tooth blade

Review of TS2000 full kerf 40-tooth blade

07-14-2017 11:23 PM by oldbrowndog | 5 comments »

I recently upgraded the saw blade on my table saw to the 40-tooth TS2000 full kerf blade from Ridge Carbide. The paragraphs below share my detailed review of this blade, but the TL;DR version is that it’s an excellent blade particularly for box joints because it has 8 raker teeth. This was the deciding factor for me in purchasing the TS2000 over the Forrest WWII. I later found out that there is an ATBR version of the WWII, but it sells for almost double what I paid for the TS2000. It ...

Resharpening- W.D. Quinn Saw Co.

Resharpening- W.D. Quinn Saw Co.

06-02-2017 03:04 PM by HassanMirza | 17 comments »

I had a chance to go see the W.D Quinn Saw Co. located in St. Louis, MO. I was looking for a place that would resharpen saw blades, only place that I could find was Woodcraft, when friend told me about W.D Quinn. I got in touch with them and Joseph (who runs the company along with his brother was very helpful). He offered to show me around if I was interested and I jumped at the chance to go. They have an amazing state of the art facility, this is not a bunch of guys that are covered in meta...

It lives up to the hype

It lives up to the hype

I have been using Freud blades on my table saw and miter saw and have been well satisfied.The cuts on the table saw had become less than smooth so it was time to either get the blade sharpened and tuned up or to replace it.Like most hobbyists I read about how great the Forrest blades are and I guess I have been yearning to try one out.As it turns out over the past day or two I have been spending money like crazy on my woodworking tools and I guess I must have crossed the just get what I want ...

A multi tool blade that makes a difference.

A multi tool blade that makes a difference.

Having used a multi-tool for a few years now I’ve come to really like this tool. My first time using was during a home remodel and I encountered a situation where I needed a notch but was afraid of the damage that a reciprocating saw would do. A chisel wasn’t an option so I bought me a cordless multi-tool that was compatible with my cordless tool batteries. I’ve since learned a 1001 uses for these things, the name really does fit. Along the way I’ve also learned abo...

Great for Hardwood Joinery

Great for Hardwood Joinery

This is a review of the 8” Infinity Dadonator stacked dado set. I have a low-end Freud dado set that actually worked quite well until I had it sharpened. Nevertheless, the one complaint I had about my old set (two-wing chippers) is that it would chip out the side shoulders when cutting tenons. That is what made me look for another set. The Dadonator excels at cutting tenons, rabbets, and half laps in hardwood. My test pieces were mostly white oak, a hardwood notorious for chipout...

This is a review of the LU86 thin kerf 40 tooth general purpose blade. I have been using this blade for all rips and crosscuts, and I must say I’m quite impressed. For ripping I was mentally comparing it to my Freud 24 tooth dedicated ripping blade. It seemed to rip 13/16” stock just as effortlessly as the 24 tooth ripper, but with a cleaner edge. There was no chipout at all with the use of a ZCI. My ripper often chips out the underside of hardwood cuts. I also look for a ...

How to Win a Customer's Loyalty

How to Win a Customer's Loyalty

02-19-2016 07:16 PM by Ben | 5 comments »

This is more a review of Freud’s customer service rather than the SD508 itself. First, a short background: I’m a total beginner – I have no background in woodworking or family in construction or anything of the sort. I started hobby woodworking about a year ago. My start in woodworking was delayed a bit because I firmly believe in buying quality products once, instead of less precise stuff that leaves me with upgrade-itis down the road. So I saved my pennies and boug...

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...

Diablo Metal Blade

Diablo Metal Blade

10-07-2015 12:54 PM by EastCoast506 | 3 comments »

I recently came across a video while looking up the Diablo line of circular saw blades. A trick he found out by mistake was using the metal cutting blade in his circular saw, so I tried it. I found my cuts were much more precise with little to no tear out, even on plywoods. Great blades all around, I use them on all my tools.

These Ridge Carbide blades are awesome

These Ridge Carbide blades are awesome

I just purchased the 8” dado set and the TS2000 blades at the Novi, MI Woodworking show (great discount if you buy both). I was a little leary as I had not seen these before. I quickly googled reviews and they were quite positive. These things cut like butter and are SMOOTH. The dado is clean with no tear out and the bottom of the dado is very smooth. The saw blade cuts to a smooth—dare I say—shiny surface. Definitely could be joined immediately. I use Forrest blade, so that...
