Hello All,

I just purchases the grizzly 10’ left tilt table saw, from there current sale. Now I need a great blade. Here is my question. As of now I am planning on ripping boards of white quarter sewn, 1’ thick. I will then be cross cutting to needed size. Is there one blade for both jobs? do I need 2? I read the reviews on the site and this blade gets great reviews, Freud LM74M010. What do you think?

Also, what do i use to clean off the nasty shipping goo they put on the top?

Thanks

Freud LU88R010 is a crosscut blade but i find it is a fine all around performer

I have a Freud glue line rip, I believe the same as you had mentioned, and it has performed very well and is the coated style. I does well at ripping espicially in thinner stock, its main design is for 3/4 to 1” stock. For general crosscutting and multi-purpose cutting I am using a Forrest WWII and it also has performed well. The WWII works better with a zero clearance insert.

I would get the Freud Premier Fusion blade. It is an excellent all around blade.
The 10” sells for around $100. I’ve heard nothing but good about it. The only reason i don’t have one is I haven’t needed a new blade since they came out. It wiil be my next blade.

David, I just bought two new machines from Grizzly and they had the goo too. I used mineral spirits and a cloth shop towel which removed the goo easily. Don’t use paper towels, they fall apart to quickly. When you are done cleaning with ms, put the rags outside to air dry. Left inside can cause a smoldering fire. Good luck and congrats.
