I have a 15” miter saw (Hitachi if that matters) that I finally need to replace the blade on after being sharpened several times, the carbide is down to almost nothing and it’s going to be due again soon. I’ve read several threads about 10” & 12” blades, but many of those are not available in a 15” size. Even if Forrest did make a miter master in 15” it would probably be well over $300. I’m hoping to keep it under or around $120 or so as I’ve seen many options on Amazon in that price range. Does anyone else have a 15” miter saw they’ve replaced the blade on and how did the replacement perform?

I have the 15” Hitachi also. I have several blades. I’ll check them tomorrow and see what the brands are.
Great saw BTW,
I’ve had mine for over 20 years, (I just burned it up) I have a new replacement on order now.

I have a BRAND NEW DeWalt 10” miter saw with a laser guide and I finally took it out of the wood shop and put it in the shed.
I bought it thinking it would come in handy but I can cut miters easier and more accurately on my table saw using my Incra 1000HD and sled.
Perhaps I didn’t give it enough of a chance but – - – -

I have
2- Hitachi’s 110T
1- Freud 108T
2- Amana’s 100T
1- No Name 108T

They all are good blades, I think I probably like the Amana’s the best.
The Freud gives me good cuts as well.
And there is nothing wrong with the Hitachi’s either.

I would have a hard time picking any one of them,
Wish I could have been more help.

Yeah, your welcome!!

I’ve come to expect it with 1st time newbies,
But with Regulars I find it disrespectful.
Maybe it’s just me….
