Anyway, he will be paying to replace the blades and fence and I was wondering if I could turn this into an opportunity to try a new table saw blade. I was using a Diablo 80-tooth blade and was burning a lot of my rip cuts, but the cuts were still really smooth and seem to glue up really well. After getting the suggestion to go to a combination blade from another post that I put up on Lumberjocks I have already bought a Diablo 50-tooth combination blade, but I haven’t taken it out for a test drive yet. Since my uncle in-law will be paying for another new blade I was thinking about getting a Diablo 60-tooth blade for crosscutting to reduce the burning that I got with the 80-tooth. Hopefully that all makes sense…
Any suggestions? I would be really interested in feedback from anyone with experience using any of these blades to rip thin (less than 1/2”) pieces that get edge glued. I’m making a bunch of cutting boards and it would be great to get glue-ready pieces right off the table saw.
