Topic tags/keywords: question

Just ran across a special listed on Highland for an Amana I copied the following:

“This 10” table saw crosscut blade has 60 Alternate Top Bevel (ATB) teeth with a 12° positive hook for smooth crosscuts in solid wood. 5/8” bore, .126” kerf. Amana #MD10-600”.

The blade is on sale for $29.99. I have a Forrest Woodworker II 40T on my saw that I have been using for all my cutting. Have been cutting some plywood recently and get a bit of splintering. Would the Amana with its 60T cut provide a better cut on plywood or cross cutting hardwood?

Hardwood certainly better. For ply it should be better than the WWII, but a blade with more agressive bevel and less agressive hook will be smoother for crosscutting ply. Forrest Duraline or Chopmaster blades and Freud LU80R are tops in my book for cross cutting ply.

Thanks NathanAllen.

I am pretty happy with the Forrest WWII blade, but have this idea that I might get a cleaner cut with a dedicated high tooth count saw blade for cross cut and plywood. Then again, investing in a higher end cross cut/plywood blade is no where near the top of my list of things I want to spend my limited budget on at this time. The $29.99 would be a good deal if the Amana A.G.E. series blade were able to give me cleaner cuts cross cutting hardwood and plywood.

I may just sit this one out.

Again, thanks for the response.
