Great dado for under $100

Great dado for under $100

02-24-2008 04:00 AM by jstewart | 11 comments »

I’ll start by saying that this is the only dado blade I’ve ever used. So, if you’re expecting a comparison to other dado blades, I’m not the person that can provide that for you. A good friend of mine loaned his dado set (this one) to cut some channels in some 3/4” MDF. Since I hadn’t used a dado set before I decided to make a number of test cuts first. I had some scrap red oak and yellow pine laying around, so I used that for some practice. The SD20...

Freud LU88 - Nice for table saw blade, but ...

I have a Delta 10” Compound Mitre saw. I bought the Freud LU88 saw blade for my Craftsman table saw a couple weeks ago, and WOW, what a difference it made when I cut some test pieces. Buying the LU88 was a HUGE step up for me, and I really noticed the improvement on my cross-cuts. Nice and smooth, hardly bogged down at all (Craftsman 10” 2.5hp TABLE SAW) on 3/4” oak, at least not like my old blade. My question is, will the LU88 blade also work in my compound mitre saw ? ...

Even in a bad saw, it makes great cuts

Even in a bad saw, it makes great cuts

When I first used my POS Firestorm circular saw, I had problems with it binding up during rips. Well, I blamed the blade and went to Lowe’s for a replacement. I came across the Freud Avanti blade. Since I didn’t want to switch out blades for different functions, I went for a good combination blade. The blade I picked up isn’t the one in the picture (courtesy of the internet), as mine is a 40T combination blade, but the important thing is the cut. The Avanti blade was ...

Porter-Cable Razor - 10" TS Blade

Porter-Cable Razor - 10" TS Blade

NOTE: the model number for the TS blade is 100VT50 Just as stated in the review for the circular saw blade, this is a great blade. I went to my local supplier for a thin-kerf Woodworker II but they were out. The guy I usually talk to told me I should give it a try. He makes picture frames for his father (an artist) on the side and swears by the miters you can get with it. He gave me a personal guarantee that if I didn’t like it after 30 days. He would take it back. No questions asked...

Great Blade but don't let looks fool you

Great Blade but don't let looks fool you

these blades are great and at a low price to. i payed 6$ for it at home depot and i have been very satisfied with it so far. origionally my dad didn;t want me to buy it because of the looks. he thought that it looked weird and he didn’t want to stray from the regular blades that he usually uses that cost around 20$. but i persuaded him and now we love this blade. i bought the 71/4” version for my dad’s circular saw but i’m sure that the 10” versions probably work...
