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...

Cuts Right Through Wood, Not Your Wallet

Cuts Right Through Wood, Not Your Wallet

08-01-2013 06:29 PM by lab7654 | 17 comments »

After I bought my R4512 (reviewed eventually…), I knew I needed a quality blade. I didn’t even bother trying the stock blade. After hearing only good things about the Irwin combo blade, I went out and got it. This blade truly lives up to all of the reviews. It crosscuts as good or better than my 60 tooth miter saw blade, even without a ZCI or sled. Ripping is a breeze, with glue-ready edges and no tearout. The one thing I have to force myself to remember is that the blade is a com...

Clean flat bottom cuts

Clean flat bottom cuts

07-27-2013 11:13 PM by twc | 8 comments »

I am always looking for new more efficient ways to complete my projects. Lately I have been doing a lot of shaker style doors with stub-tenon and groove joinery. That’s where this blade comes in. It makes super clean cuts with perfectly flat bottoms. On their website it is shown cutting tenon shoulders in a single pass. I have not done anything bigger then a stub tenon but I think it would excel at larger tenons as well. I would definitely recommend this to anyone that likes to c...

Freud's Dado - Freud's Dodo

Freud's Dado - Freud's Dodo

It’s pretty safe to say I love Freud tooling. And I love it in spite of being trapped into using it.I should explain. We primarily run Freud tooling in our shop simply because my boss signed up to be an occasional demonstrator for them at hobbyist shows. His compensation for this task (and it is a task if you put yourself into it) is that he receives dealer discount on any order, always. It would be easy to dislike their stuff if I had no choice (as the tooling manager of a small ...

Ridge Carbide Tool Ultra TS2000 Saw Blade

Ridge Carbide Tool Ultra TS2000 Saw Blade

01-20-2013 08:35 PM by BigDawg | 16 comments »

When I first bought my Ridgid TS3650 table saw, I knew that it would need a good blade to allow this saw to reach its full potential. I bought the Freud Fusion 40 tooth combination blade (3/32), and the Freud 24 tooth (3/32) glue line ripping blades. They both work very well. Bevels, miters (with miter gauge), and rips are done without taxing my 15 AMP motor too much. However, here is the kicker! I then purchased a Ridge Carbide Ultra TS-2000 48-tooth general-purpose blade (3/32 kerf). And...

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

Forrest Duraline HI-AT 80 tooth blade.

This Forrest blade is by far the very best blade I have ever owned. I ripped and crosscut some 3/4” Baltic Birch with no bottom chip out at all. All of these years of using cheap blades what a waste of time and material. Looking forward to using my Forrest 8” Dado blade now.

A great deal

A great deal

I’ve been using this blade for a few months now. It’s lived in my miter saw most of that time and I just tried it out on the table saw for rip cuts. I’ve been very pleased with this blade, overall. The titanium nitride coating does seem to reduce friction and give a somewhat cleaner cut. The blade is nice and sharp out of the box. It cut more easily and cleanly the Kobalt blades I had been using in the miter saw. And the rip cuts it did were good too. The saw didn&#...

Steel City bandsaw blade - fooled me

Steel City bandsaw blade - fooled me

10-23-2012 03:33 PM by Tennessee | 8 comments »

On this site it seems like everyone has their favorite blade. To me, longevity is a biggy, as it is with most woodworkers. For a long time I struggled to find a good bandsaw blade, and it never seemed like I could get more than two months out of a blade. Months ago, back when I was still a one bandsaw shop, (so this has to be before my Grizzly, maybe five-six months ago?), I ordered four Steel City bandsaw blades, 93 1/2, 1/4” thick, 14TPI, from the Home Depot website.The order got m...
