I am going to change my miter saw to a Bosch 10” Glide and will want to upgrade the blade. The saw will used mostly for crosscutting hardwood pieces and some other things. What do you suggest? I see that Freud has 60 and 80 tooth Diablo blades at a reasonable cost. Infinity tools has some at more (about $80). There are Forrest, but they are really expensive. Let me know what you use/like.

I have a standard kirf 80t Frued, and just bought there thin kirf 60t that is designed for miter saws with a negative tooth angle, but have not used it yet.

My 10” saw isn’t a slider, but I’ve gotten very good performance from CMT’s 255.080.10 blade. Despite being abused on occasion it still produces excellent cuts. It’s not too terribly expensive either: http://www.amazon.com/CMT-255-080-10-Industrial-Finish-10-Inch/dp/B000P4O7AA

The Freud LU91 is a good one for a miter saw. Very smooth cuts, reasonably priced, and you can get it without that hideous red coating.

For a slider you’ll want a blade with a very low to negative hook angle. The Infinity 010-060 is a super choice, and is one of the best all around blades I’ve used….very similar to the Forrest WWI. Their 010-080 is another exceptional choice. The Freud LU91 is a solid choice for a slider.

I’ve used the Freud diablo 60 and 80 thin kerf with excellent longevity and quality cuts on a standard miter dewalt.

The look, they could have some up with something besides “barf red”. Seriously it’s just the look f it I despise, those with the “ICE” coating do just as well and aren’t as ugly.
